When done right swine farming can be very rewarding and may being nice profits as well.
But it is very important that you really know what you are doing when starting out because you can easily make costly errors. So 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 must construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You should place your pig pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may being insects.
Your pig 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 fence must be buried six 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 swine produce you may put hay plus straws on the floor. You can even design parts in the house where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is needed as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rain.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right swine breed for your task. This should 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 need 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 grow in the pen. A healthy pig will produce quality meat thus giving you more profits.
