Not Good to Breed

These pigs are sociable, friendly to anyone they see and are in fact somehow playful. They are also good mothers and produce more milk than the other breeds.

They are healthy and strong, adapt to changing climate, and give exceptional meat quality and commercial value.

However, just like the Pietrain Pigs, these are slow growers, require more food and not prolific. So it is not good to breed.
