When done right swine farming can be very rewarding and may being some good profits as well.
However it is very important that you know 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 domestic swine to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You must place your swine pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your swine pen must be adequate to accommodate all of your domestic swine and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire and concrete slabs. The surrounding fence must be buried six 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 smells that the pigs produce you may put hay plus straws on the floor. You can also design sections in the pen where your swine can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is needed as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rainfall.
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 buy your pigs from a seller who knows what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your swine 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 on daily bases. Remember to clean the pen every occasionally to ensure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A proper pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more revenue.
