The Idaho Pasture Pig (IPP) is a newer breed of pig that is composed of the Duroc, Old Berkshire, and the Kunekune pig. These are true “grazing” pigs and are very gentle in nature, have great personalities, are easy to work with, are smaller in size then traditional pigs, are great mothers, are able to live outdoors all year round, and can grow extremely well with a diet of primarily grass. They typically butcher out in 10 months with a beautiful rich and delicious red meat.
One of the benefits of this breed is their smaller mature size. Ideally, sows should mature out at 250 – 350 pounds whereas the boars should mature out at 350 – 450 pounds. When feeding a diet of primarily grass, the butcher pigs should reach a butcher weight of about 230 – 250 in approximately 10 months. (From Registered IPP site https://idahopasturepigregistry.com)
