When done right pig farming may be very productive and may being nice profits as well.
However it is very important that you know very well what you are doing when beginning because you may 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 swines to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well ventilated swine pen which is spacious as well. You should place your swine pen in a flat area that is free from mud that can being insects.
Your swine pen must be adequate to accommodate all your swines and really should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The fence should 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 odors that the pigs produce you can put hay and straws on the floor. You may also design sections in the house where your swine can feed, rest 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 has to be done carefully. Make sure that you purchase your swine from a seller who has found out 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 on daily bases. Keep in mind to clean the pen every occasionally to make sure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A healthy hog will produce quality meat thus giving you more profits.
