About German Landrace PigsAbout German Landrace Pigs

German Landrace pigs were developed around 1900 in Lower Saxony, Germanyrnfrom carefully selected pigs from the area. During the years of 1948-1958,rnthere were importations of Danish and Dutch Landrace that were used to furtherrnimprove the breed. 

rnrnGerman Landrace pigs are very similar to other Landrace pigs; they are whiternheavy drooping ears. However, they are not as extreme in size and length asrnsome of the Landrace strains of other nations. 

rnrnGerman Landrace pigs breeding selection efforts have been especially directedrntoward excellent fertility, heavy milking, and good mothering. There has beenrnspecial attention, following weaning, to efficiency in feed conversion and tornhigh cut-out values.

rnrnGerman Landrace pigs have proven very useful inrncrossbreeding and in improving the general performance of swine in Germany.rnAbout 1,000 head are exported each year to other countries.
