Idaho Pasture Pigs are a new breed of pig specifically designed to grow and mature at a faster rate than the Kunekune pigs, but are still true Grazing pigs. These pigs mature to market weight within about 6 months and eat less grain than the average meat hog does. They are smaller in size at maturity comparitively than the average meat hog.
Idaho Pasture Pigs (IPP's) are a combination of the original Duroc, old Berkshire, and Kunekune breeds. The founder of the IPP's spent years perfecting the combination to get a fast growing, friendly, and most importantly GRAZING meat pig. IPP's come in a variety of colors including black, white, ginger, tri-colored, red, and any combination of these colors.
IPP's have a disposition similiar to the Kunekune pigs in that they are loveable, are extremely gentle, and love attention. Because of this, they are easier to farrow and have less complications. They also have inherited the short, upturned snouts that the Kunekune pigs have, which allows them to be pasture based. They love grass and will graze just like the other animals we have on our farm.
Tired of having your fields look like a plow went through? Still want to be able to grow your own pork? Then the Idaho Pasture Pig is definitely the answer!!! No rooting up your fields - just nicely grazed pastures that look like horses or bison live there!
