Pig Farming Is One
Of The Most Profitable Business Ventures
Pig farming is one of the most profitable business ventures one
could take. Everybody needs to eat and pork is one of widely used in
all parts of the world so it's nearly impossible to run out of
clients or customers. As one might expect, pig farming takes a lot
of time and energy but it is not too difficult.
There are two ways you can raise your pigs:
1) Pasturing Pigs.
You can leave a pig to pasture for pig farming as long as you have a
wide enough area of land with a lot of grass and soil. All you need
is to construct a fence to keep your pigs from roaming too far off
your land. When fencing your pigs, you should use very strong wood
and thick corner poles to make sure your pigs won't wreck the
barrier; pigs won't generally try to destroy the fences but adult
pigs are quite strong. You should dig deep into the ground for your
poles because pigs are notorious diggers. While pigs are still
young, fencing them is easier since they tend to stay where there is
food and water.
Keeping your pigs in the barn for pig farming is easier for a number
• Cleaning will be much easier.
• You can collect their feces and use it as fertilizer.
• You can control what they eat. When you leave them out to pasture,
they will eat the grass and whatever they can dig in the soil.
• A roof means the pigs get the shade they need. Pigs don't have
sweat glands all over their bodies so they are very sensitive to
heat sources like the sun.
It is recommended that you use concrete when making a barn for
pig farming. It is durable enough to keep your pigs inside and
affordable enough that you can make a large barn. The floor should
be sloped to a draining pipe so that the water used to clean the
barn is drained easily; you can just use a hose when cleaning.
To make cleaning easier, you should separate the feeding area to the
rest area. The feeding area should be at least 10 feet deep and 10
feet wide for every two pigs. The rest area should be half the size
of the feeding area. You can also create a pool for your pig where
they can bathe; about 5 feet deep should be sufficient.
