      Caring and taking care of pigs can be fun if you really have time for them.

      Newborn piglets need a temperature of around 95 degrees Fahrenheit for a week. Then the temperature should come down by 5 degrees each week until it is time for weaning. Young piglets must also be allowed to either root in the soil or receive an iron supplement.

      There might be more, but i think the 3 things you need to take serious are below:

      -Proper Housing
      If you’re raising pigs on a pasture, they will need only a covered three-sided shelter large enough for them all to lie down beside each other inside. A board fence around the pasture with a single strand of electrified perimeter wire will be enough to keep pigs contained.

      Clean water should be available at all times. Automatic waterers, whether they’re serviced by a hose or a large drum of water, are good choices since they are difficult to overturn or soil.

      -Health Care
      Providing your pigs the vaccines recommended for your local area by a veterinarian, and limiting the pigs’ contact with other animals, will go a long way toward preventing disease. It is also crucial to keep their housing area clean and free of moisture and manure.

      Pigs are often prone to worm infections, especially if they are not rotated through different pastures. Many worm species leave eggs or larvae in the host animals’ feces, and rotating to a new pasture helps to disrupt ,the worms’ life cycles

      I don’t know much about pig feed formulation, but maybe this might help.
