When done right pig farming may be very productive and may being nice income as well.
But it is very important that you know very well what you are doing when starting out because you can certainly make costly mistakes. So 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 domestic swine to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You must place your pig pen in a flat area that is free from mud that can being insects.
Your swine pen should be adequate to accommodate your entire domestic swine and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire and concrete slabs. The fence must be buried six 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 ground. You can even design areas in the pen where your swine can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A good 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 getting the right swine breed for your project. This must be done carefully. Make sure that you buy 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 need to do is take good care of them. You can do this by providing them with food and 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 giving you more profits.
