When done right swine farming may be very rewarding and can being nice profits as well.
Nonetheless it is very important that you really know what you are doing when starting out because you can easily make costly errors. 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 should construct a well aired pig pen which is spacious as well. You should place your pig pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your pig pen should be large enough to accommodate your entire swines and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The surrounding fence must be buried six 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 swine produce you can put hay and straws on the ground. You can even design parts in the pen where your swine can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is needed 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 project. This must be done carefully. Make sure that you purchase your swine from a seller who knows what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your swine are in their houses all you have to do is take good care of them. This can be done by providing them with food plus clean water everyday. Keep in mind to clean the pen every occasionally to ensure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A proper hog will produce quality meat thus giving you more revenue.
