Abstract:

Overview: Pigs were once known as "mortgage lifters," a term that endears them to many small farmers. Whether you want a pig on your property for pleasure or profit, on a small scale or large, this is the book you should have. From first considerations to last, choosing a breed to bringing home the bacon, this approachable, authoritative guide covers every facet of raising pigs. Whats the story behind the modern pork industry? What are the advantages of raising pigs on a small scale, and what does it take in the way of resources and accommodations? After delving into these questions, author Philip Hasheider goes into the details of housing, feeding, and caring for pigs, as well as breeding, showing, and marketing them--as a project, a hobby, or a business, or just to have one of these unique porcine characters around the farmyard. His book also includes a glossary of terms, a list of resources, and information about pork organizations, regulations, and ordinances.
