Breeding pigs in Minecraft


An unassuming farm animal that many would brush off as not having much use could actually be of a great boon to you if used correctly and bred efficiently.


In this article, we shall go over how exactly you breed pigs and what you need to do to bring this pig farm to its full potential for your personal gain.


What You Need To Breed Pigs


Thankfully Pigs are fairly low maintenance in terms of what is required of them to begin the breeding process. What makes them fairly unique in this, however, is that pigs have a few options in what they can be fed and get into love mode. Here is a list of these food items in particular:


  1. Carrots

  1. Potatoes

  1. Beetroots


You will also need some fences to keep your pigs within a contained area for convenience's sake so that the two pigs you are attempting to breed are near each other and wander off.
