When done right swine farming can be very rewarding and may being nice earnings as well.
However it is very important that you know what you are doing when starting out because you may easily make costly mistakes. Make sure you get the right information and guidelines which can be found in this article.
When beginning pig farming you should first plan on where you want your domestic swine to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well aired 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 swine pen must be adequate to accommodate all of your pigs and really should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire and concrete slabs. The surrounding fence should be buried 6 inches deep in the ground so that the pigs don’t dig under it. Concrete slabs will ensure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odors that the pigs produce you may put hay and straws on the ground. You may also design sections in the house where your swine can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is needed as well to protect your pigs from extreme weather like heat and rainwater.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right pig breed for your task. This needs to be done carefully. Make sure that you purchase your pigs from a seller who knows what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your pigs are in their houses all you have to do is take good care of them. You can do this by providing them with food plus clean water on daily bases. Keep in mind to clean the pen every occasionally to make sure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A healthy pig will produce quality meat thus giving you more revenue.
