When done right pig farming may be very rewarding and may being some good 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 aired pig pen which is spacious as well. You must place your pig pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your swine pen must be adequate to accommodate all your domestic swine and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The surrounding fence must 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 smells that the pigs produce you can put hay and straws on the floor. You can even design areas in the pen 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 getting the right swine breed for your project. This must be done carefully. Make sure that you purchase your swine 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 on daily bases. Also remember to clean the pen every once in a while to make sure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A proper pig will produce quality meat thus giving you more income.
