About Red Wattle PigsAbout Red Wattle Pigs

The Red Wattle hog, also known as the Red Wattle pig, stands as an emblem of American meat pig breeds, characterized by its striking red coat and distinctive wattles or tassels that adorn its face. These unique features set them apart in the world of swine.

Typically ranging from 600 to 800 pounds (270 - 360 kg) in weight, with some large specimens reaching a remarkable 1,200 pounds (540 kg), standing at 4 feet (120 cm) tall and stretching 8 feet (240 cm) in length, Red Wattle hogs are formidable in stature. Their remarkable fertility is evident as they commonly produce litters of 10 to 15 piglets.

Renowned for their rapid growth, efficient foraging abilities, and robust health, Red Wattle hogs are prized for their hardiness, mild temperament, and resilience to disease. These qualities make them ideally suited for extensive management practices.

Despite their remarkable attributes, Red Wattle hogs find themselves on the threatened list of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC), emphasizing the importance of conservation efforts to preserve this unique and valuable breed for future generations.
