Iberian pigs
« on: February 03, 2009, 06:49:33 pm »
Has any of you ever raised an Iberian pig.

I'm dong some research on these spanish breed. This breed is supposed to have been brought to the US by spanish settlers and left. Later Americans found a reserve of these on an island that had not cross bred with other species and called them Ossabaw Island hogs (after the name of the island on which they were found)

Any Ideas on this breed? Growth rate, temperment, etc?

Thanks
