This is another wonderful Storey title. You can tell the author loves hogs and I enjoyed his stories about his hogs. But the great thing about this book, like most other Storey titles, is the no-nonsense INFORMATION presented. Real helpful INFORMATION you can use whether you are raising two or twenty hogs. And good information on breeding too. I want to get myself a pig or two, and this book tells me what I need to know!

Storey's Guide to Raising Pigs brings the author's thirty years of experience to a resource on small-scale hog farmers packed with knowledge and advice. From an expanded breed guide and insights on safe fencing to guidelines for showing and new disease prevention methods, this packs in all business and health details needed to raise healthy, profitable pigs. Rural collections should consider this a 'must'.

For a beginner this book contained more information on pig farming as business than getting started guide. Information was spread out through the book on one subject with varying degrees of depth. I fear I will have read something I want to review & be unable to find it again without reviewing its entire contents. Plenty of useful information but almost to the point of a hindrance.

If one is looking to raise and show hogs, or learn about the origins and traits of all breeds, this book has lots of information and print dedicated to that end, but if one is looking to raise a few hogs for home use of their meat, then this book really doesn't have a lot of information related to that. It was boring to me and difficult to read without falling asleep.

I ordered this book to learn more about raising the pigs we had just purchased. I am well satisfied with the informatiion contained. I have gleaned a great deal of knowledge about swine and am now more prepared for this new endeavor. Probably should have read the book before buying the pigs!

Format: Paperback
Since getting all that I could out of The Homesteader's Guide to Animal Raising, I started to shop around for a pig-raising book because I had more questions. As a fellow Storey book this third edition of Raising Pigs was an attractive choice. Not only for its arrangement of information, high quality black & White photos, record keeping templates, and an overall fresh look - but because I liked the introduction and found the author trust-worthy and knowledgeable.

I only found out later that in the 374 pages of text that it was too much information for me, particularly about the business of a medium-small hog operation (including racing and showing). I didn't find this relevant to my backyard family homestead, while big questions arose around castration and ear notching that was not included, so I had to look elsewhere. Although it's not as fancy, I find Dirk van Loon's book Small-Scale Pig Raising to be my pig bible. There are pros and cons of each book, but overall, Dirk tells how to raise hogs best.
