From the Back Cover:

The other day a friend considering raising an animal for meat asked me whether he would be better off getting a calf or a piglet. Without hesitation I said pig.

From this beginning, author Dirk van Loon explains exactly why raising a feeder pig is the best bet for someone with little land who wants to produce the most meat for the smallest investment of time and money. Small-Scale Pig Raising covers everything from buying a pig to smoking your own bacon.

You'll learn about:

* Housing & equipment

* Penning & handling

* Health & nutrition

* Commercial feeds and feeding

* Alternative feeds

* Pig digestion & physiology

* Breeding & farrowing

* Management techniques

* Butchering

Small-Scale Pig Raising is extra good on home butchering, with step-by-step instructions and many photos covering the entire process from slaughtering to portioning meat for the freezer.

About the Author:

Author Dirk van Loon has written two Storey books, The Family Cow and Small-Scale Pig Raising. He publishes a monthly newspaper for small-scale rural producers called Rural Delivery. Dirk is a graduate of the College of Agriculture at Cornell University and now lives in Nova Scotia.
