Contained within this book is a classic guide to keeping pigs for profit or pleasure, exploring subjects including care and health, general management, selection, breeding, and much more. Although old, this handbook contains a wealth of timeless information and will be of considerable utility to modern farmers. Contents include: “Selection Of Breeding Stock”, “Herd Records”, “Management Of The Boars”, “Management Of The Sow Herd”, “Management Of Pigs”, “Principles Of Feeding”, “Feeds For Production Of Pork”, “Rations For Swine Fed In The Dry Lot”, “Rations For Swine That Have Access To Good Pasture”, “Forage Crops For Swine”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on pig farming.
