pigs are found in abundance in the northern parts of Europe, particularly in
Finland. They have the same origin as the other Landrace pig breeds of Europe.
The Finnish Landrace pig breeds were developed by means of crossings with the
improved indigenous stock that were brought from other countries. They average
6 to 10 baby piglets in a litter and will have two to three litters per year.
pigs have a white body color and the weighty, drooping ears, like other
landrace pigs; however, Finnish Landrace pigs are extremely tidy. Because of
this, they have been imported as seed stock to other countries. Finnish
Landrace pigs make sure their bathroom area is far away from where they eat and
rest, even piglets (baby pigs) will find a place to go to the bathroom far away
from their nest.
