Duroc Pig


Other name(s):
 Duroc-Jersey

Scientific name: Sus domestica

Country / Place of origin: United States

History: The origin of the Duroc breed of swine is traced to a red boar (named “Duroc” after a famous trotting stallion) brought to New York in the early 1800s, born from parents that may have come from England. The Duroc line was interbred with large red hogs from New Jersey (called “Jersey Reds”) resulting in smaller pigs with finer bones, faster growth and maturity, and more desirable meat qualities. Durocs have become a foundation for many mixed-breed American commercial hogs.

Reviews
