When done right pig farming may be very rewarding and may being good earnings as well.
Nonetheless it is very important that you really know what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly mistakes. 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 pigs to call home. For pig housing you must 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 can attract insects.
Your swine pen should be adequate to accommodate all your pigs and really should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The surrounding fence should be buried 6 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 may put hay and straws on the floor. You can even design areas in the house where your swine can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is necessary as well to protect your pigs from extreme weather like heat and rainfall.
After you have designed 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 purchase your swine from a seller who has found out what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your swine 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. Also remember to clean the pen every occasionally to ensure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A proper hog will produce quality meat thus bringing you more revenue.
