Description
When Jacob Biggle first published this book in 1898, hog husbandry was undergoing major changes. New feeding methods had come into vogue, new breeds of hogs had been developed, significant progress had been made in curbing swine-borne epidemics, and even the public perception of pigs as filthy creatures had brightened. Pigs were accorded a modicum of respect. The Biggle Swine Book captures this moment before home animal husbandry gave way to industrialized meat production, and Biggle describes what to do at farrowing time, constructing the piggery and sty, butchering and curing meats, and protecting your animals from various pig ailments. First published at the turn of the 20th century and prized ever since for their practical tips and sage advice, Jacob and Harriet Biggle's well-illustrated books are classics of farm literature. Their humane instructions and warmly amusing maxims are timeless, particularly for those who have decided to start their own small farms.
