When done right pig farming can be very rewarding and can being some good earnings as well.
However it is very important that you know what you are doing when starting out 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 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 may attract insects.
Your swine pen must be large enough to accommodate all your swines and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The surrounding 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 may put hay plus straws on the floor. You may also design sections in the house where your pigs can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A good roofing is required as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rain.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in choosing the right pig breed for your project. This needs 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. You can do this by providing them with food and clean water on daily bases. Also remember to clean the pen every every now and then to make sure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A healthy pig will produce quality meat thus giving you more revenue.
