About French Landrace Pigs
Landrace pigs were first
introduced into France around 1930; however, it was not until after World War 2
that extensively imported into France - mainly from Sweden.
Today’s French variant of
then Landrace pigs is typically large and white with heavy drooping ears. They have
been bred for skeletal soundness, heavy muscling, good mothering, and prolificacy.
Sows average 19.7 pigs per year. Their hams are bulging and their rumps are
level and wide with very muscular loins.
