When beginning pig farming you should first plan on where you want your swines 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 area that is free from mud that can being insects.
Your pig pen should be adequate to accommodate all your pigs and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs.

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 and clean water on daily bases. Also remember to clean the pen every every now and then to make sure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A proper pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more profits.
