Poland China pigs are meet pig from the Miami Valley, Butler and Warren counties, Ohio,United States, in 1816. They are big-framed, long-bodied, lean, muscular pigs and they lead in U.S. pork production in pounds of hog per sow per year. Also they are the oldest American breed of swine.

The Poland China hog was first bred on the Hankinson Farm in Blue Ball, Warren County, Ohio. A monument to this accomplishment still stands near the place where the hog was originally bred. The monument was moved slightly when the farm was sold for development of the Towne Mall, Middletown, Ohio in the early 1970s, and now stands across the street from the mall property on Cincinnati Dayton Road.

Competing claims are made that the first Poland China breeder was David M. Magie, who lived at the Austin-Magie Farm near Oxford, Ohio.
