I loved Dirk Van Loon's book "The Family Cow," so I decided to check out another one of his books, "Small-Scale Pig Raising." Sadly, I did not find it as wonderful as the bovine book. Van Loon made cows seem so simple and in this book he makes simple pig raising appear so....complex. Also, this book seemed very dated. There are better pig books out there. Go find one.

This is the best hog rearing book I've come across. Contains a wealth of information on raising pigs "the old fashioned way" ie. pasture. This method of raising pigs is a lost art form. Highly recommend for anyone seeking info on natural hog production.

I fine basic primer on hog raising on a small scale. Much better than a few others I have read.

I hear pigs are good for farming, more than just for meat . . .
