About Belgian Landrace PigsAbout Belgian Landrace Pigs

ThernBelgian Landrace is a muscular white breed with heavy drooping ears. They arernknown as 'the butcher's pig' one of the most commonly used breeds of pork forrnthe consumer market. The Belgian Landrace can be described as a very practicalrntype of breed with good fertility, sound body mechanics, and are good mothers withrnplenty of milk for their piglets.

rnrnThernBelgian Landrace has met the demands of producing top quality fresh pork forrnthe consumer marketplace. The breed has also sparked interest from otherrncountries with similar goals in crossbred swine production.

rnrnThe BelgianrnLandrace breed's development began in the late 1920's, with the native Landracerntype, which sought to improve their short fat and poorly muscled traits. In thernearly 1930's, the German Landrace was introduced and crossed with the nativernstock. The German stock that was introduced was said to have had an infusion ofrnBritish Large White. About a decade later, the Dutch Landrace breed werernimported and crossed with the Belgian Landrace to boost fertility,rnconstitutions, stature, and add a faster rate of growth to the breed.

rnrnProducing a very high quality of fresh, lean meatrnwith minimum fat cover is the number one goal in Belgium. Most pork is marketedrnto consumers as fresh pork rather than as cured or processed meats. Overall,rnBelgium continues to test their swine and monitor production very carefullyrnwhile striving to improve quality. This breed is an excellent example ofrnselection and crossbreeding that consistently produces top quality fresh pork.
