About Minzhu PigsAbout Minzhu Pigs

Minzhurnpigs, or Ming, Min, or Da Min, pigs come from far northern China. Minzhu meansrn"folk pig."

Theyrncan be found in the Middle Temperate Belt, to the north of the Huaihe RiverrnBasin and the Qinling Mountains. The cold and dry climate of this region makesrnthe Minzhu very tolerant to cold temperatures and harsh feeding conditions.rnThey are also known as the Ming, Min, or Da Min. Minzhu is said to meanrn"folk pig."

rnrnMinzhu pigs are small pigs with very long black hair. Thisrnhair has coarse, long bristles and a dense woolen undercoat in the winter. Thisrnhair allows sows to farrow in an open shed at 4° C with issues.

They werernintroduced into the United States under a cooperative effort of the USDA, thernUniversity of Illinois, and Iowa State University. This effort also importedrnFengjing and Meishan pigs from China on July 27, 1989.
