About Nero di Parma PigsAbout Nero di Parma Pigs

rnrnParma swinernbreeding historically represents a deep-rooted documented activity since thernend of 1400. At that time black coated pigs were particularly appreciated asrnthey reached a considerable weight (190-240 kg). From the second half of thernnineteenth century onwards, black pigs were gradually replaced by white stockrnfrom northern Europe, as they were more productive and profitable. But sincernthe half of the 90s a recovery plan of the black pig breed from Parma started,rnso that these animals have come to enrich the population around such area. Asrnto the number, the present day population, which has been defined like the realrnfounder of the hybrid breeder register, is made up of a few hundreds examples,rnmostly half wild, bred in about twenty farms.

rnrnrnA strong animalrnof medium-large size with a good balance of both thigh and shoulder. The skinrncolor is dark grey and the coat is made up of sparse grey turning to blackrnbristles.
