About Middle White PigsAbout Middle White Pigs


Middle White Pigs are native to the United Kingdom. They originated inYorkshire around the same time as the Large White. Their name comes from the fact that they are between the size of the Large White and the now-extinct Small White.

Middle White Pigs were fully recognized as a breed in 1884. The breed is known as a pork producer (rather thanbacon or lardtype pigs), and are best known for having sharply upturned snub noses. They are docile and often kept outdoors in grazing situations. Though their numbers have rebounded somewhat, they are currently listed as endangered.
