When beginning pig farming you should first plan on where you want your pigs to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well ventilated swine pen which is spacious as well. You must place your pig pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may being insects.
Your pig pen should be adequate to accommodate your entire swines and really should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire and concrete slabs. The fence should 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 odors that the swine produce you may put hay and straws on the floor. You can even design parts in the pen where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is required as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rainfall.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right pig breed for your project. This should 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. You can do this by providing them with food and clean water everyday. Also remember to clean the pen every once in a while to ensure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A healthy hog will produce quality meat thus giving you more income.
