When done right swine farming may be very rewarding and may being some good profits as well.
However it is very important that you really know what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly errors. So 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 domestic swine to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well aired swine pen which is spacious as well. You must place your pig pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your swine pen must be large enough to accommodate your swines and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The fence must be buried six 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 swine produce you can put hay and straws on the floor. You can even design areas in the pen where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is needed as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rain.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in choosing the right pig breed for your project. This has to be done carefully. Make sure that you buy your swine from a seller who knows what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your pigs are in their houses all you have to do is take good care of them. This can be done by providing them with food plus clean water everyday. Remember to clean the pen every every now and then to ensure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A proper pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more income.
