Keeping Pigs is a task that requires knowledge, but not necessarily time.

Aimed at people with busy schedules this instructive book gives practical information about how to manage a small herd and keep pigs happy and healthy under the time constraints of modern life.

The Commuter Pig Keeper is all-inclusive covering various breeds both as breeding herds and food sources. Topics addressed include all aspects of pig rearing, including an in depth look at breeding, housing, and handling techniques. This essential guide also discusses the administrative and business issues of pig keeping, as well as giving advice on contingency planning for when problems occur.

Written by a member of the Animal and Plant Health Agency’s Pig Expert Group, this book offers useful information for both novice and expert pig keepers.
