When done right pig farming may be very productive and may being nice profits as well.
However it is very important that you know very well what you are doing when beginning because you may easily make costly errors. Make sure you get the right information and guidelines which 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 should place your swine pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your swine pen should be large enough to accommodate all your domestic swine and should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire and concrete slabs. The 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 smells that the swine produce you may put hay plus straws on the floor. You can also design parts in the house where your swine can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is necessary 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 task. This must be done carefully. Make sure that you buy your swine from a seller who has learned what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your swine 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 on daily bases. Also remember 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.
