When done right swine farming can be very rewarding and may being nice profits as well.
However it is very important that you know what you are doing when starting out because you can easily make costly errors. 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 domestic swine to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You must place your swine pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your swine pen should be adequate to accommodate all of your swines and should be comfortable to your swine 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 ensure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odors that the swine produce you may put hay and straws on the floor. You can also design parts in the pen where your swine can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A good roofing is needed 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 getting the right pig breed for your task. This should 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 pigs are in their houses all you need 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 every now and then to ensure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A healthy pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more income.
