When done right pig farming can be very rewarding and can being nice profits as well.
However it is very important that you really know what you are doing when starting out because you can easily make costly mistakes. Make sure you get the right information and guidelines that 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 should construct a well aired pig 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 swine pen must be large enough to accommodate all of your pigs and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire and concrete slabs. The surrounding fence must be buried six inches deep in the ground so that the pigs don’t dig under it. Concrete slabs will make sure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odours that the pigs produce you may put hay plus straws on the ground. You can also design sections in the pen where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is required as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rainwater.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in choosing the right swine breed for your task. This must be done carefully. Make sure that you buy your pigs 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 every now and then to make sure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A proper pig will produce quality meat thus giving you more revenue.
