About Casertana PigsAbout Casertana Pigs

The Casertanarnbreed has very ancient origins (Teano or Pelatella): in fact  it isrnfrequently represented in frescoes and sculptures of Roman times. It isrncertainly the most precocious among Italian breeds, being able to give largernamounts of fat. At the age of one year these pigs may weigh over 150 kg. Thernpresent situation about this breed is crucial, as only few examples still live,rnand not all of them are full-blooded. Rustic, excellent at grazing, frugal andrnprecocious, they have all the right features to be raised in the open. Theirrnfertility is limited to an average of 4-6 piglets each delivery up to a maximumrnof 10.

rnrnBristles arernabsent or present in reduced number, that’s why the nickname of ‘Pelatella’.rnAnother distinctive element is the presence of two lacinias (jowls) under the neck.

rnrnThe head is smallrnwith medium-sized parallel ears, which they bear forward. The frontal nosernprofile is straight or just hollow. Short solid limbs and a light skeleton. Therncolour is dark often getting to purple brown.
