About Pugliese PigsAbout Pugliese Pigs

According to thernopinion of last century's reliable authors Pugliese swine differ from otherrnbreeds in height, strength, sobriety and rustic nature.

rnrnThanks to a planrnto the recovery of the breed some rustic pigs (mainly black) were found on thernterritory; today they are reared in the wild state.

rnrnThe skin wasrncovered by big black bristles, sometimes black with tawny markings, washed awayrnin the tip, especially on the back and on the neck and they were arranged in arncrew cut along the back. Sometimes, however, the coat could also be whiternspotted or totally white, a dirty white such as to remind ivory white with arnblack cap at the back side of pelvis. The head was small and snub, the trunkrnlong and angular, the buttocks, the thighs and the shoulders are underdevelopedrnand the tail almost always twisted. The sows are less prolific than northernrnEuropean breeds, they farrow twice a year with the average of 5-6 weanedrnpiglets.
