In recent years, with the growing popularity of pig farming science & technology, the specialized pig farming industry is gradually consolidated and prospered. Here is a design program of a modern pig farm, taking the pig farm with annual fattened pigs population of 1, as an example, to discuss the design of the farm functions, farm buildings, farm ancillary equipment and farm mechanization. A pig farmer has two options: intensive or free range. In the former, pigs are kept in a high- density, closed housing system. In free-range farming, they are run in smallish camps, foraging on feed crops such as oats, barley, lucerne and even grass. Both systems have their advantages and disadvantages, but the novice pig farmer must also.

Pigs have all their right to be given a house to stay at least before they are taken to their final destination. Organic pig producers face the major challenge to produce pig meat of high quality and at a moderate price based on high animal health and welfare standards. To meet this challenge, farmers cannot rely on organic housing and production regulations solely, as these do not inevitably result in a good animal health and welfare status of the pigs.
Install a sturdy wire fence around the pen. Use a woven fence that is "hog tight" with a board on the bottom to discourage digging. The best way to build your fence is to map out the area you will house your pig(s) in and then build a sturdy wooden fence around the area.
When your fence is built, attach 4×2 welded wire to the inside of the fence so that if the pigs push on it, it won’t go 94%().

The thicker and taller the grass, the more resilient the pasture recovery. Pasturing pigs isn’t a new idea. In fact, hogs have been raised in American meadows and woodlots since our country’s inception.
