About British Saddleback PigsAbout British Saddleback Pigs

BritishrnSaddleback pigs are a breed of domestic pig created in the 20th century from the cross-breedingrnof Essex and Wessex Saddleback breeds.

rnrnIn thern20th century LordrnWestern, while travelling in Italy,rnsaw some Neapolitan pigs and decided that  they were just what he needed to improve thernbreed of Essex pigs. He bought a pair of Neapolitan boars and crossed them withrnEssex sows. One Lord Western's tenants named Fisher Hobbs of Boxted Lodge then usedrnthe Neapolitan-Essex boars and crossed them with his coarse Essex sows and inrnprocess established the Improved Essex breed. 

rnrnBritishrnSaddleback pigs have a black head and neck, as well as a clearly defined belt ofrnwhite extending over the shoulders and continuing over the forelegs. The restrnof the body is black with the exception of white feet and the tip of the tail. BritishrnSaddlebacks are hardy and noted for their mothering ability. The breedrncontinues to be used mainly to provide colored dams for the production of first-crossrnporkers, baconers and heavy pigs.
