if you want to know what a pig is read this book, if you want to understand a more in depth understanding of what is needed to raise pigs... pass on this!

Book review

This book had some good information, for marketing. It had some hand information about growth, breeding age, and herd health. However it is based more on larger scale confinement settings and less on small scale pastoral settings.

Narrator is fine, book itself is disappointing

The book does have some decent information but there are also inaccurate and biased “facts” scattered through. The information is dry and most of it sounds like bullet points rather than informational paragraphs. I would not recommend it for a new farmer/homesteader who wants to learn to raise pigs.

Loads of good info!

I have no evidence of what I want or how to do it or how much of what lol This audiobook breaks it all down for those of us who don't know much! I highly suggest this audiobook. It is pleasure to follow!

Great companion book

If you own the original Backyard Homestead this audiobook is great for going into deeper aspects about animal care (if you don’t own it you need to get it!!). Hope it had a part about pigs but there are lots of books already out there about them. Happy with this purchase!

This is a great audiobook!

This is a great audiobook! The author keeps your attention while telling all about pigs. I have been threatening for a book with good knowledge. Thank you for the knowledge on the pig's first aid kit!

Resourceful

It has given us lots to consider and if we do take the leap, we will owe a lot to this book. The knowledge is well laid out and the information is presented in an easy-to-digest manner. Overall, a reliable book for caring for pigs.

Well investigated and presented.

Well investigated and presented. Adorable illustrations. Extremely well-presented and prepared. Simple to follow, yet full of knowledge, not a skimpy beginner's book. The writer includes everything from setup to raising, to training & milking, even including some recipes.
