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