Pig Manual: The Complete Step-by-Step Guide to Keeping Pigs

Keeping a few pigs has undergone something of a renaissance and never before has it been so popular. The Pig Manual is a straightforward, no-nonsense guide to getting started - whether your interest is filling your freezer, starting a new business, managing land the traditional way, or simply taking on some charismatic new pets.
Packed with colour photos and clear step-by-step text, this manual is ideal for beginners who need advice on buying and rearing their first pigs. Also a handy resource for the more experienced pig-producer who occasionally needs to dip into a quick-reference manual for help and reassurance.

Escape to the country? - THE AUTHOR WRITES: Unlike lots of my current friends, I wasn't born a farmer - far from it. I was brought up in a terraced house in South Wales and spent 30 years as a journalist & broadcaster before discovering there was more to life. Back in 2000, I accidentally - yes, accidentally - bought a smallholding, and started keeping livestock. Since then, I've never looked back. In my previous life, I used to interview celebrities and politicians, go to fancy media events, and swan around in designer clothes. When I bought my hilltop smallholding, all my smart outfits went on eBay to help buy a tractor; nowadays, you're unlikely to recognise any of the labels I wear unless you're a fan of heavy-duty wellies or waterproof overalls
