Product description

Did you know that wild razorback hogs probably were imported into the United States from Russia during the 19th century? Pigs in general are good foragers and most breeds are able to live off the land. Seven breeds of pigs are common in the United States, and no breed is inherently better than any other. The seven most popular breeds are the Yorkshire, Chester White, Berkshire, Duroc, Hampshire, Poland China, and American Landrace, all discussed in this little book. This little book introduces adults and children alike to popular breeds of pig. Each breed gets a spread featuring a color photograph and a full discussion of identifying characteristics, plus a write-up about the breed' s history, personality, foraging and mothering habits, and suitability for the small farm.
