Large White pig
|Country of origin||United Kingdom|
|Standard||British Pig Association|
The Large White is a big, white pig, with erect ears and a slightly dished face.
The Large White is one of the most numerous of all pig breeds, widely used in crossbreeding for intensive pig farming around the world. It was originally developed as an outdoor breed, but today it is one of those favoured by commercial pig breeders, lending uniformity to pigs produced for meat on a large scale.
