Idaho Pasture Pigs
Meet our babies
Idaho Pasture Pigs are a new breed of a "Grazing Pig", specifically designed to grow and mature quickly. These pigs mature to market weight within about 9 – 10 months by primarily eating grass. Idaho Pasture Pigs eat less grain and are smaller in size at maturity than the average meat hog. Butcher weight is about 230-250 pounds. Sows should mature to about 250-350 pounds and a boar should mature to about 350-450 pounds.
Idaho Pasture Pigs (IPP’s) are a mix between the original Duroc, old Berkshire, and Kunekune breeds. The founder of the IPP’s spent years perfecting the combination to get a fast growing, friendly, and most importantly GRAZING meat pig. Idaho Pasture Pigs come in a variety of colors including black/white, ginger, tri-colored, cream, and any combination of these colors.
They have a friendly disposition similar to the Kunekune pigs, they are loveable, extremely gentle, and like attention. All this makes them easier to farrow and have less complications. The best part, they graze on grass much like your other farm animals would do with much less rooting.
