About Murom Pigs
Murom Pigs are a meat and
lard breed of hogs developed in 1957 in Murom Raion, Vladimir Oblast by
selection of a domestic breed.
Murom Pigs are large, sturdy,
and well built. Mature boars weigh 250–280 kg; sows weigh 200–220 kg. A litter
consists of ten or 11 shoats; the sow’s milk production is 60–70 kg. When
fattened for meat, a pig at six or seven months of age will weigh 90–100 kg and
produce high-quality bacon on the basis of 4 - 4.5 feed units per kg of weight
Murom Pigs are used for
commercial cross-breeding with Large Whites and other breeds.
