About Beijing Black PigsAbout Beijing Black Pigs

The Beijing Black Pig breed, widely distributed across China, is primarily recognized for its role as a meat-producing breed, characterized by a predominantly black coat adorned with occasional white markings. Its development dates back to 1962 when it originated from a selective crossbreeding program. This program aimed to enhance the breed's attributes by incorporating genetic contributions from the Berkshire and Large White breeds, alongside local Chinese breeds like Dingxian, Shenxian, and Zhouxian. The deliberate amalgamation of these genetic lineages has contributed to the distinctive traits and desirable meat quality associated with the Beijing Black Pig breed.
