6 important things that many pig farmers are not getting right
1. Nutrition: Many pig farmers do not provide their pigs with proper nutrition. Pigs require a balanced diet of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals to grow and develop properly. Inadequate nutrition can lead to health problems and slow growth.
2. Housing: Some pig farmers do not provide adequate housing for their pigs. Pigs should be housed in a clean, dry, and well-ventilated environment that is free from drafts and is protected from extreme weather conditions. Inadequate housing can lead to health problems and stress.
