When done right swine farming may be very rewarding and may being good earnings as well.
But it is very important that you know very well what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly errors. So make sure you get the right information and guidelines which can be found in this article.
When starting out in 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 swine pen which is spacious as well. You must place your swine pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may being insects.
Your swine pen should be large enough to accommodate all your swines and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The 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 ground. You can also design sections in the house 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 rain.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in choosing the right pig breed for your project. This has to 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 have to do is take good care of them. You can do this by providing them with food plus clean water on daily bases. Remember to clean the pen every every now and then to make sure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A proper hog will produce quality meat thus bringing you more revenue.
