When done right pig farming may be very productive and can being good profits as well.
However it is very important that you know what you are doing when starting out because you can easily make costly errors. 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 pigs to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well aired swine pen which is spacious as well. You should place your pig pen in a flat place that is free from mud that can being insects.
Your swine pen should be adequate to accommodate all of your swines and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The surrounding fence should be buried 6 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 odours that the pigs produce you can put hay and straws on the floor. You can also design parts in the pen where your swine can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is necessary as well to protect your pigs from extreme weather like heat and rainwater.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right pig breed for your task. This has to be done carefully. Make sure that you buy your swine from a seller who has learned 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 everyday. Also remember to clean the pen every occasionally to make sure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A healthy hog will produce quality meat thus giving you more income.
