Small Scale Production

Responsible small scale pig production requires an understanding of the basics of good animal care and welfare, swine nutrition, on-farm food safety measures and provincial/federal regulations that all producers must follow.

The Introduction to Small Scale Pig Production guide developed in 2017 is an excellent reference if you are considering or already raising small pig herds.

Swine veterinarians are an invaluable resource to ensuring your herds remain healthy and productive.
