2. Pig production

This short chapter was written mainly to introduce the terminologies of pig rearing and pig production practices, with particular emphasis on tropical pig production. As such, it is laconic and touches only on major aspects of pig rearing. However, it is important that the concepts and principles of this chapter are understood.
