Raising pigs can be a rich and rewarding contribution to anyone's farmstead. Curated and presented by "Pork" Rhyne of The Livestock Conservancy, Introduction to Raising Pigs covers a wide range of issues everyone should consider when getting started.
"Pork" Rhyne kicks things off with an introduction that provides an overview of heritage breeds that have been carefully selected and bred over time. The course goes on to cover feed considerations, health tips, start up costs, breeding advice, and selling to market. He also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of different systems for raising pigs, whether on pasture, Silvopasture, a woodlot, a dirt lot, or in a barn.
