About Lincolnshire Curly-Coated PigsAbout Lincolnshire Curly-Coated Pigs

LincolnshirernCurly-Coated Pigs, also known as the BastonrnPigs or simply as the Lincolnshire Curly Coats,rnwere an old breed of pigs from Lincolnshire,rnEngland. The breed became rare, and was finally extinct by the early tornmid-1970s.

rnrnLincolnshire Curly-Coated Pigsrnwere bred to be tough and hardy. They were large and had lop ears. Their mostrnprominent feature was their long, curly white coat, which helped it to weatherrnthe damp, cold winters of the Lincolnshire fens.

Lincolnshire Curly-Coated Pigsrnwere one of the oldest breeds in the UK, and was formerly very common in easternrnEngland. By the 1930s, selective breeding had developed its fatteningrnabilities, and large specimens were exported to Russia and other countries. However, theirrnnumbers dwindled after the Second World War, mainly due to changing farmingrnpatterns and a taste for leaner meat. 

rnrnThe last known specimensrnwere kept by John Crowder, and the breed was lost in the early to mid-1970s.
