Get Started In Pig Keeping: Teach Yourself by Tony York
We first met Tony York when we were at the start of our pig-keeping venture, back in 2003. He hosted a great course at Pig Paradise and we can vouch for his knowledge and expertise.
Get Started in Pig Keeping offers amateur pigkeepers everything they need to make a success of this increasingly popular pursuit. Whether you are interested in breeding pigs, in meat production, or just want the pleasure of their company, this book covers legalities, basic equipment, picking breeds, understanding behaviour and how to raise and slaughter pigs.
You’ll get all of the advice you need on daily maintenance of your animal, from feeding to cleaning, and find ample resources if you wish to produce your own meat – or even market and sell it at a local level.
