Description:
Pigs were once known as "mortgage lifters", a term that endeared them to small farmers everywhere. Even today, you can write and cash a cheque on a piece of pigskin. Whether you want a pig on your property for pleasure or profit, small scale or large, this is the book you must have.

From the first consideration of choosing a breed to putting bacon and sausages on the table, this approachable and authoritative guide covers every facet of raising pigs. What are the advantages of raising pigs small-scale? What does it take in terms of resources, time, shelter, feed, healthcare?
