Economic advantages in producing heavy pigs?

Economic advantages in producing heavy pigs?

Erhvervsjordbruget 7(5): 24-27

In the last few years there has been increasing interest in Denmark in breeding heavier pigs rather than the traditional 'bacon pigs'. Experiments have shown that these heavier pigs could be profitable for producers and slaughterhouses, but this will depend on feed prices and subsidy regulations. In the long run it may be possible to separate the production of heavier pigs from that of the bacon pigs and use them for special markets.
