About Australian Yorkshire PigsAbout Australian Yorkshire Pigs

Originally from Yorkshire England, the Australian Yorkshiresrnare derived from the original English breed of domesticated pig. This particular breed is also known as the most commonrnbreed in Australia.

In 2001, a study was conducted at the Institute ofrnAgricultural Sciences of South Vietnam thatrncompared to the Australian Yorkshire and the Duroc and to common Vietnamese pigs. It concluded thatrnthe Australian breeds had "significant advantage over Vietnamese breeds inrngrowth, efficiency and carcass lean and in littering performance."

The Australian Yorkshire isrnmarketed globally, with special modifications being made for Asian markets. Forrnexample, Australian Yorkshires supplied byrnAustralian Pork Limited was opened to specificallyrnchange the diet of the pigs to please consumers in Singapore. The pigs sold inrnSingapore were fed barley grains and soy beans, rather than whey powder, as the whey powder gavernthe pig meat a milky taste that was not well received by most Asians.
