Best Basic Pig Book for Small Scale Pigkeeping,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Starting with Pigs: A Beginners Guide (Paperback)
I've read at least 10 pig books in the past couple of years, but this gets my vote as the best one for the small-scale pig keeper. Covers everything you need to know (including what to do if you have to raise piglets without the mother's help, something a surprising number of books ignore) without going into too much mind-boggling detail. There are a lot of great pig books out there, but most of them are aimed at pig farms. This is more geared towards the smallholder, pet pig owner or hobbyist. And isn't the pig on the front cover just great?!!!

Gives a good basic overview; doesn't tell you what to do if there is a major problem, though I think this is a good thing as if you have limited experience you should either call a vet or have a more experienced pig breeder on standby anyway!
