About Bulgarian White Pigs
In the early 1960s, the Bulgarian government wanted to improve the meat yield of
the country's Bulgarian White stock. They did so by importing "3,000
pedigree breeding stock of the Landras and Large White varieties...from the
USSR, Sweden, and Poland." These important pigs were given out to the pig
farmers in the country, along with ten state
farms, in order to crossbreed them with local Bulgarian White stock. The result
today is the Bulgarian White pig.
