When done right pig farming may be very productive and may being nice earnings as well.
But it is very important that you really know what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly errors. 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 domestic swine to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You should place your pig pen in a flat place that is free from mud that can being insects.
Your pig pen should be large enough to accommodate your pigs and 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 swine produce you can put hay plus straws on the floor. You can also design sections in the pen where your pigs can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is required as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rain.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in choosing the right pig breed for your project. 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 swine 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. Keep in mind 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 giving you more income.
