Comprised within this antiquary book is a complete treatise on the keeping, breeding, management, and husbandry of swine. This book was written to provide a text for agricultural students, as well as a helpful reference book for the busy farmer – which would give them, in concise form, information on the successful handling of swine. Although old, much of the information contained herein is timeless and will still be of much use to modern readers with an interest in productive swine husbandry. The chapters of this book include: ‘The Place of the Hog Upon the Farm’, ‘Types of Swine’, ‘Breeding and Selection’, ‘The Berkshire Bred’, ‘The Poland-China Breed’, ‘The Chester White Breed’, ‘The Duroc-Jersey Breed’, ‘The Hampshire Breed’, ‘The Large Yorkshire or Large White Breed’, ‘The Tamworth Breed’, ‘The Victoria Breed’, etcetera.
