Morning all,
Just wondering, we've searched the forum and can't find any mention of them, but does anyone have Iberian Pigs? Or have you tried any other breeds?

Hi, I too am looking into keeping a few pigs. Not carried out much research, at this time. However; I have come across the Portuguese 'Porco Bisaro,' it is said to be a very lean pig. Trust this thread runs and we can all acquire more information.

Hi, cool, starting to think that we were the only nutjobs on here
We've been looking at Iberians purely for their skins tolerance to the sun. Though any breed will wallow and protect themselves given enough water and mud to do so.
Costs seem to vary quite wildly, there are Leitões on Olx for anything between ¢55 and 200 !
Our main interest is how much anyone keeping them in Pt has to supplement their grazing with grain.
And yep, look forward to a few useful comments. Pretty sure they'll be along soon :?
