About North Caucasian PigsAbout North Caucasian Pigs

At that time in the NorthrnCaucasus, the local Kuban pigs were bred mainly with strong constitution andrnadaptability to local conditions and pasture content, satisfactory multipartyrnand good maternal qualities. However they were slow to mature. Therefore, itrnwas decided to keep everything valuable from local Kuban pigs, but with earlyrnmaturity and improve meat qualities. And also more adaptability to cold climaternand the ability to use the maximum amount of juicy and coarse fodder.

rnrnNorth Caucasian pigs wererncreated through complex reproductive crosses of local Kuban pigs with LargernWhite, Berkshire, and White Short-breed breeds. In 1955 the North Caucasianrnbreed of pigs was approved as an independent breed of swine for meat and fat production.
