When done right pig farming may be very rewarding and may being nice earnings as well.
But it is very important that you know what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly mistakes. 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 pigs to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well aired pig pen which is spacious as well. You must place your swine pen in a flat area that is free from mud that can being insects.
Your pig pen should be large enough to accommodate all of your swines and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire and concrete slabs. The surrounding fence must be buried 6 inches deep in the ground so the pigs don’t dig under it. Concrete slabs will ensure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odours that the swine produce you may put hay plus straws on the ground. You can even design parts in the house where your pigs can feed, sleep 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 choosing the right swine breed for your project. This should be done carefully. Make sure that you purchase your swine from a seller who has learned what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your pigs are in their houses all you need to do is take good care of them. You can do this by providing them with food plus clean water everyday. Remember to clean the pen every once in a while to ensure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A healthy pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more revenue.
