Large Black Pig- according to Hobby Farm magazine the perfect pig. Old English breed, well marbled, but not with a lot of waste needing trimmed. Can be pasture raised, a true grazing pig, can be finished on grain if desired.  Will not destroy pasture, as rooting is limited to mud hole and around feeder.  Will top out at 700lbs, but when raised on lush pasture, will finish out at 250.

The Large Black pig is native to Cornwall, Devon, and Somerset in southwestern England. Originally known as the Lop Eared Black, the breed was selected for large size and efficiency of production on pasture and other forages. The Large Black gained popularity rapidly during the last half of the 1800s, and it was one of the most numerous of the English pig breeds in 1900. A breed association was formed in 1898.

THE LARGE BLACK PIG | 'When numbers of the Essex, Suffolk and other black pigs from East Anglia dropped so low as to be unsustainable, the remaining specimens were amalgamated with the West Country pigs [of Cornwall and Devon]; “subsumed into the Large Black Herd Book and all examples of the breed since have been 'Large Blacks'."'     ✫ღ⊰n
