About Bulgarian White Pigs
In the early
1960s, the Bulgarian government wanted to improve the meat yield of the
countrys Bulgarian White stock. They did so by importing 3,000 pedigree
breeding stock of the Landras and Large White varieties from the USSR, Sweden,
and Poland. These important pigs were given out to the pig farmers in the
country, along with ten state farms, in order to crossbreed them with local
Bulgarian White stock. The result today is the Bulgarian White pig.
