Synopsis: Pigs: A Guide to Management provides a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of pig-keeping: how pigs have developed, the influence of the market on the breeds, and pig-keeping systems, nutrition, the pig and its environment, reproduction, piglet birth, survival, growth, and development, and the important place of artificial insemination in both modern commercial production and maintaining our rare breeds. The welfare, care, and management of the pig through to its sale as a finished pig, along with that of the breeding sow, gilt, and boar, is a central theme. This title covers aspects of pig husbandry, and provides a comprehensive guide to developing pig management skills. It illustrates the range of pedigree and commercial pig breeds and how they are influenced by the market, as well as those aspects of pig management that have an impact on health, welfare, and production efficiency. Also inside are over 120 color illustrations, including photographs of all of the current BPA-registered pig breeds, along with pet pigs and wild boars.
