It was bred in Denmark at the beginning of 20th century. Landraces have a narrow breast and an expanding lower body, a lengthened head, a straight back and shortened legs. The main feature is big and long ears, overhanging above eyes. Landrace is one of the best in the bacon category.

Duroc is a cross between Guinea Hog and Berkshire pigs. It has a good meat output. Their main characteristic is the color, called “red suit”: the color differs from dark red to goldish. The breed has long ears, an arcuate back, strong legs and well-defined hands. Duroc is not very fertile – the number of piglets from one sow can be 9-11. Piglets are born quite big (1100-1600g) and they are able to gain 100kg for 170-180 days. Duroc is strong and adaptable. Boars gain 300-360 kg in live weight, sows – 240-300 kg. Fat layer is no more 3 centimeters and this is possible if a carcass has 80% of meat.
