Full of practical advice this unusual and innovative book discusses in depth as many as 50 subjects which, for understandable reasons, may not have been adequately covered by the 35 pig textbooks in the author's reference library. Five sections deal with pig business management; minimizing disease; new developments in current and future pig production; ideas which maximize profit; and 14 subjects written specifically for the stockperson/pig technician.
