Soft Cover, 256
By: Sue Weaver
a pig is easy to do, even in a small space like a suburban backyard. In just
five months, a 30-pound shoat will become a 250-pound hog and provide you with
100 pounds of pork, including tenderloin, ham, ribs, bacon, sausage, and more.
For anyone who wants to raise a pig for meat in a backyard or on a small farm,
this comprehensive guide explains exactly how to do it, humanely and safely.
Livestock expert Sue Weaver covers everything from selecting a breed with great
flavor and bringing your shoat home to feeding, housing, fencing, health care,
and humane processing.
