Description

In recent years there has been an increasing resurgence in small scale pig rearing for both commercial use and exhibition purposes. With many of the older and less common breeds sinking into obscurity, and in some cases vanishing completely, this book will greatly assist all who seek to raise the profile of one of our oldest and most favourite, domesticated farm animals. "Pigs. Breeding and Management." Consists of one hundred and eighty four pages containing thirteen Comprehensive Chapters: Breeds of Pigs. (Including Scales of Points). Selection of the Boar. Management of the Boar. Selection of the Sow. Management of the Sow. Mating. Management of the Young Pigs. Exhibition Pigs. Breeding Cross-Breds. Housing Pigs. Experimental Pig Feeding. Pig Census and Value. Diseases of the Pig. Bacon and Ham Curing. There are also twenty four full page vintage black and white photos of various pig breeds. This is a fascinating read for any pig breed enthusiast, farmer or smallholder, with much of the content remaining useful and practical today.
