Really like this little book. If you are just looking for something that helps you identify different breeds it's good. Give a short history of the breeds and a good picture. no info on husbandry etc just what they look like. I keep looking through it!! The sheep and cattle ones are good too. I have them by the bed = but i'm very sad!!!
Bought this for my parents whom do a lot of walking and wanted a reference guide on farm animals so bought a selection of these informative little books. They were very pleased, good photos and history on each animal would recommend.
excellent field guide for people who happen to visit a farm or just pass some pigs in the country. The races you are likely to see in britain are shown with good pictures and a small description. It is just a visual guide and does not contain in information about the history of the pigs, their characteristics, pig breeding/raising, housing, food, fencing how to buy, sell, legal considerations, etc. For that there are other good books available.
