Piggies do get sick every so often and need shots so ask around for a decent Vet to stop by once a month and recommend both shots and a purple spray antibiotic for cuts the piggies may get rolling around and scraping on the stalls.
Without a vet, expect to lose even more then 40% of your piglet litters due to disease or infection.
having it sit and fester is not only going to smell but will be a breeding ground for mosquitoes. If you want good meat then you should ONLY feed them pig grain from a feed store. they bought the minimal amount of grain and pocketed the rest of the money.
You’ll also want to ask whether or not there is a well on the property and an electric line. And finally, a septic tank for the caretakers near a Nipa hut for them to live in. We made the mistake with our first caretakers of giving them money to buy the grain. So, hook up with a grainery supply house locally yourself and set up an account with a deposit.
The mentality here is that if there’s so much of it and you’re “so rich”..
it’s not really stealing to poach some inventory for some extra pesos.
It’s not been huge money especially since any profits have been going into expanding more and more stalls so that we can handle about 100 piggies simultaneously.
