When done right pig farming can be very rewarding and may being good profits as well.
However it is very important that you know very well what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly mistakes. So 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 swines to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well ventilated swine pen which is spacious as well. You must place your pig pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your pig pen must be large enough to accommodate all of your swines and should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire and 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 smells that the swine produce you may put hay plus straws on the floor. You may also design sections in the house where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is required 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 choosing the right pig breed for your project. This has to 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 have to do is take good care of them. You can do this 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 healthy pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more revenue.
