When beginning pig farming you should first plan on where you want your pigs to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You should place your swine pen in a flat place that is free from mud that can attract insects.
Your swine pen must be large enough to accommodate your entire swines and really should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The surrounding fence must be buried 6 inches deep in the ground so 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 can put hay and straws on the ground. You can also design parts in the house where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is necessary 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 choosing the right pig breed for your project. This must 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 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 plus clean water everyday. Keep in mind 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 profits.
