A Guide to Raising Pigs A Guide to Raising Pigs:
Care, Facilities, Breed Selection, Management

(Storey Animal Handbook)

by Kelly Klober
Paperback (1998)
Denizens of pork country often say that the odor of pig excrement is the smell of money.   Initially complaining that "of all the major livestock species, none is more misunderstood . . . than the hog,"   A highlight of the book is the do-it-yourself aspect, included to illustrate home butchering technique but also part of what makes this a handy resource for those considering pork production.   A great starter book for the new or hobby farmer and an entertaining one for the mildly curious.  CopyrightŠ 1998, American Library Association.
