Tamworth Pig
If you've read many of my posts you know I love old books on farming and especially pigs. I have a pretty good collection dating back as far as 1883.

I've bid on books on some auction sites older than that but they end up being too rich for my blood!

This document is dated 1925 but is revised so it probably was from an earlier work. It is titled Swine Feeding.

It covers quite a bit of topics such as:

Corn
Rye
Barley
Oats
Middlings
Skim milk and buttermilk
Linseed oil meal
Soy bean oil meal
Field peas
Cull beans
Alfalfa
Good pasture

Self feeding

It even contains a table that shows several different types of pasture crops for pigs.

Enjoy!
