Description
 
Joseph Harris (au); Noel Perrin (fr). Facsimile reprint of a guide originally pub. in 1883. Dispenses practical teachings on the hows & wherefores of pig rearing. Includes a comprehensive intro. to various breeds of pigs, a common-sense approach to feeding, step-by-step instruction on building piggeries & pens, plus dozens of other useful lessons -- all leavened with a healthy dose of humor. Gems of knowledge abound: A well-bred pig won’t waste energy wandering around the pen. Such a pig will instead sleep 3/4 of the day, esp. in winter. Also, pigpens should be cleaned daily. This few minutes’ work will lead pigs to form their own cleanly habits, which will save on bedding. A veritable swine bible offering the serious breeder & casual reader alike a fine educ. in the practices of pig mgmt. Ill.
