HASH(0x9d3782dc) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great Primer from Someone Who's "Been There" 27 de diciembre de 2012

My husband and I are considering raising a pig or two on a new farm we're establishing. I've been reading through sources on the internet and from our state's land grant university. I happened upon this booklet while ordering another.

This booklet is a good primer. It covers many of the topics and questions I have as a "considering pigs" new farmer. I especially appreciate it was written by a woman who's been *exactly* where I am now. As we have large wooded areas on our property, we will pasture the pigs in a more natural setting, as did the author. So, for me, this booklet is like an on-paper mentor.

Regarding the couple *very negative* reviews...

1) This booklet is a primer. It does not claim to be a comprehensive or encyclopedic guide to pig farming. Quite frankly, as a beginner, I want someone to show me the path they successfully took so I have a model to emulate. That is far more helpful to me at this stage then reading through every nuance and nit-noid of a subject when I'm just starting out.

2) I am a self-professed grammar zealot. This book is self-published and easily readable. Are there a couple commas missing and a spelling/grammar error or two? Sure. It happens to the most polished authors and big publishing houses! I commend the author for sharing a wealth of information and experience at an affordable price for homesteaders. Please don't let those vitriolic comments deter you from this purchase if you are a beginning homesteader or contemplating trying to raise pigs. It's worth the price.

I learned alot, and it was very detailed. The chapters were well written. They made it sound easy and I liked how they explained how and why you did not want to raise too many pigs in one area.

HASH(0x9dde3948) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Good Information, Terrible Editing, Bad Formatting for Kindle 31 de marzo de 2013

As a complete beginner to raising pigs, I thought this book was very informative. It isn't a "complete" book by any means, but it is a good introduction with all the basic info I wanted. It is written in a conversational style that was easy to read and kept my attention.

However, the editing is terrible [lots of grammatical errors, typos, etc]. In addition, the Kindle formatting was messed up on my copy and there were parts of the book that you couldn't read because it literally only showed half the page [it hasn't done this on any of the other 100+ kindle books I have, so I don't think it is a problem with my kindle]. Some of the pictures also weren't great - they wouldn't even really show up on my kindle screen, they just looked like gray blurs.

Over all, for the price, I think this is a decent introduction. It could have been much better with some basic editing and better kindle formatting.

I read the e version for this review. Not sure that it is available in hard copy. I found this to be a decent overview but it does suffer from spelling and typeset errors. For a person or family new to keeping hogs, this book will give you the confidence to give it a try. For those with a bit of experience it is also worthwhile to see how someone else raises them. The book does however, have a plethora of spelling errors and the version I read had at least two sections that had the typeset cut off on the screen so I could not read entire lines of text. Very frustrating. Content wise I would have liked to see some data on how the various breeds described compare on things like gaining weight, size of litters, live weight to finished weight ratios, and length of time needed from birth to average slaughter weight.
