When beginning pig farming you should first plan on where you want your swines to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You should 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 swines and should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The fence must be buried six inches deep in the ground so 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 pigs produce you can put hay and straws on the ground. You can even design areas in the pen where your swine can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is needed as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rainwater.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right swine breed for your project. This needs to 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 have to do is take good care of them. This can be done by providing them with food plus clean water everyday. Remember to clean the pen every every now and then to make sure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A healthy pig will produce quality meat thus giving you more profits.
