When done right swine farming can be very rewarding and can being some good earnings as well.
However it is very important that you know very well what you are doing when starting out because you may easily make costly mistakes. Make sure you get the right information and guidelines that can be found in this article.
When beginning pig farming you should first plan on where you want your pigs to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You should place your pig pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may being insects.
Your pig pen should be large enough to accommodate your pigs and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The fence should be buried 6 inches deep in the ground so the pigs don’t dig under it. Concrete slabs will make sure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odours that the pigs produce you can put hay plus straws on the floor. You can even design areas in the house where your swine can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is required as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rain.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right swine breed for your project. This should be done carefully. Make sure that you buy your swine from a seller who has learned what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your swine are in their houses all you need to do is take good care of them. This can be done by providing them with food and clean water everyday. Remember to clean the pen every occasionally to make sure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A proper pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more income.
