'teach yourself Pig-Keeping' will offer the amateur pig-keeper everything they need to make a success of this increasingly popular pursuit. Whether you are interested in breeding pigs, in meat production, or just want the pleasure of their company, the guide will cover everything from the legalities, the basic equipment, picking breeds, understanding behaviour and how to breed or slaughter pigs. It will also give you advice on daily maintenance of your animal, from feeding to cleaning, and will offer ample resources for those not only wishing to produce meat, but also to market and sell it on a local level. The author has trained thousands of amateur pig-keepers on his weekend courses, and is fully qualified not only to instruct you in all elements, but to do so in a readable and user-friendly manner. With illustrations, diagrams and a full glossary, this is a guaranteed route to happy and healthy pigs.
