Author information

Jack Byard was born in Bradford in Yorkshire where he lived and worked all his life. A Rolls Royce mechanic by trade, and a jewelry craftsman in his later years, Jack spent the better part of his working life as a school workshop technician, imparting his knowledge to young people. He always had a deep affection for his rural heritage and so wrote his first book, Know Your Sheep, with a view to sharing with others the countryside that he loves. Three years later there is no sign of a quiet retirement for Jack just yet. Know Your Pigs is his sixth book.

Review quote

My three favorite books under ten dollars right now have to do with farm animals. Know Your Cows, Know Your Chickens, and Know Your Pigs are great little, full-color guides to several dozen breeds per critter. Being part owner of nine hens and one rooster, I know all I care to about our birds. Feed them, let them out, collect the eggs. If you are one of those people (and there are many) who want to know a little bit more, say as much as you can fit in your pocket or purse, Know Your Chickens is for you. The bovine version has sold even better than the poultry while the pigs have kind of wallowed.
