People who are new to pig farming often ask what the best way is for them. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer, but if you’re looking into starting up with pigs then it’ll help get your mind made up about where and how big of an operation (or backyard flock) would work well!

We’ll go over some basic planning rules when dealing solely within South Africa- the country renowned worldwide thanks in part due to its high-quality pasturelands: These can be applied globally though depending on local accesses/topography.

The first step is understanding what you are looking for. Are they going to be used for breeding or raising young ones that will end up being slaughtered? Maybe both!

Secondly, it’s also important to consider the market requirements and what competition there already is. You also have to think about whether or not your business will be flexible enough for seasonal changes in demand as well!

Thirdly, it’s important to consider any restrictions or regulations in place for where you plan on setting up your farm. There may be local regulations or health standards that will affect what type of land can support certain types of farming practices and livestock-raising options available in any given area, etc.
