New

A straightforward and readable book for the small scale pig keeper, this is an excellent and practical introduction that is also up-to-date with the relevant regulations. Concentrating on the older, more traditional breeds, it covers housing and free-range management, feeding, breeding and rearing, buying and selling.

Written for those new to pigs, this book provides a good, sensible introduction to the subject. It looks at all aspects of practical management and handling, including housing, choosing breeds and stock, breeding, farrowing and health.

Experienced pig-keepers will also benefit from reading the book, not only as a reminder of the rules and regulations that apply, but also for the wealth of practical tips.

Written by a well-known pig breeder and small farmer, it is ideal as an up-to-date and accessible book on pigs.
