Bacon Pigs in Canada. Notes on Breeding, Feeding, and Managing Swine with reports of Some Experiments.

Ottawa: Central Experimental Farm/Department of Agriculture, 1905.

Octavo, 61 pages + illus. First edition of Bulletin no. 51 from Canada's Central Experimental Farm. A short but thorough examination of many aspects of bacon pig production, including a section on wintering and varieties of grain used for wintering. Movable enclosures, similar to our 'pig tractor' of today are discussed as well. With some light edgewear to the printed wrappers, and a few internal pages quite soiled. Still a serviceable, and not unattractive copy of this scarce pork booklet.
