When done right pig farming may be very rewarding and may being nice income as well.
But it is very important that you really know what you are doing when beginning because you can certainly make costly errors. So 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 domestic swine to call home. For pig housing you must 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 should be adequate to accommodate your pigs and should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The fence should be buried 6 inches deep in the ground so that the pigs don’t dig under it. Concrete slabs will make sure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odors that the swine produce you may put hay plus straws on the ground. You can also design areas in the house where your swine can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is necessary as well to protect your swine 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 must 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 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. Also remember to clean the pen every occasionally to ensure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A healthy hog will produce quality meat thus giving you more income.
