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 ventilated swine 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 swine pen must be adequate to accommodate your entire domestic swine and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The surrounding fence should be buried six 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 smells that the swine produce you can put hay plus straws on the ground. You can even design areas in the house where your pigs 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 built a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right pig breed for your project. This needs to 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 pigs are in their houses all you need to do is take good care of them. This can be done by providing them with food plus clean water everyday. Keep in mind to clean the pen every every now and then to ensure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A proper hog will produce quality meat thus giving you more profits.
