Keeping pigs is a task that requires knowledge, but not necessarily time.

The Commuter Pig Keeper is all-inclusive, covering various breeds both as breeding herds and food sources. Written by a member of the Animal and Plant Health Agency's Pig Expert Group, this book offers useful information for both novice and expert pig keepers. Topics addressed include all aspects of pig rearing, including an in-depth look at breeding, housing, and handling techniques. This essential guide also discusses the administrative and business issues of pig keeping, as well as giving advice on contingency planning for when problems occur. Michaela Giles has worked in the livestock health industry since 1985 researching the detection, mechanisms, and cures of naturally occurring livestock diseases. She is a member of the Animal and Plant Health Agency's Pig Expert Group, the Animal Health and Welfare South-East group and an elected regional sector representative for the British Pig Association.
