Middle White Pigs

Middle White Pigs are a friendly breed of pig.

  • Middle White pigs originate from Yorkshire.
  • They have been bred from Large White and Small White stock.
  • This breed has a white coat with a flattened face and nose.
  • They have pricked up ears with feathery hairs around the edges of the ears.
  • These are early maturing pigs.
  • Middle Whites are reared for pork and can produce good quality chops.
  • They are good natured pigs.
  • Middle white pigs are a docile breed.
  • The snubbed nose can make this pig less prone to rooting.

A useful book for a new pig keeper and breeder is the book Starting With Pigs by Andy Case or the The Virgin Pig Keeper by David Brown.
