When done right swine farming can be very rewarding and can being nice income as well.
But it is very important that you really know what you are doing when beginning because you may easily make costly errors. So make sure you get the right information and guidelines that can be found in this article.
When beginning 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 pig 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 pig pen must be large enough to accommodate all your domestic swine and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire and 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 smells that the swine produce you may put hay plus straws on the floor. You can even design sections in the pen where your swine can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is needed as well to protect your pigs from extreme weather like heat and rain.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right swine breed for your task. This must be done carefully. Make sure that you purchase 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 and clean water everyday. Remember to clean the pen every occasionally to make sure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A proper pig will produce quality meat thus giving you more profits.
