How to raise pigs as a family in my village

Scientific Name
The pig is a mammal belonging to the order Artiodactyla and the family Suidae, which is also known as the even-toed ungulate family. That family is further subdivided into another four to eight genera, with domesticated pigs and wild boars belonging to the genus Sus. Species belonging to that genus are regarded as suids or swine; eight living species currently exist.

The scientific word for pig is Sus scrofa, a name which applies to the wild boar, the Eurasian wild pig, as well as the domesticated mammal. But what’s the scientific name for a pig that’s not wild–rather, domesticated?

The scientific name of a pig, or classification, for the domesticated pig, is sometimes extended to Sus scrofa domesticus.

The domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus) originates from the Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa). Evidence suggests domestication of this species occurred multiple times and in multiple locations across Asia, Southeast Asia, India, Europe, and Africa. Domestication began approximately 9,000 years ago in Eastern Turkey. In 1539, Hernando de Soto brought domestic pigs to North America, which eventually established the initial populations of “feral hogs.” In the early 1930s, Eurasian boar were released onto hunting preserves in Texas, where some interbred with the feral hogs. Today, there are potentially 3 types of wild pigs in Texas and North America: feral hogs, hybrids between Eurasian boar and feral hogs, and Eurasian boar. There are also hundreds of breeds of domestic pigs of all sizes and colors.
