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 starting out 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 swines to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well aired pig pen which is spacious as well. You should place your pig pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may being insects.
Your swine pen must be adequate to accommodate all of your domestic swine and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire and concrete slabs. The fence must be buried 6 inches deep in the ground so that 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 pigs produce you can put hay plus straws on the floor. You can even design parts in the house where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is required as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rainfall.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right pig breed for your project. This should be done carefully. Make sure that you purchase 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. You can do this by providing them with food and clean water everyday. Also 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 giving you more income.
