Morphological traits, reproductive and productive performances of Casertana pigs reared outdoors



Morphological traits, reproductive and productive performances of Casertana pigs reared outdoors



Italian Journal of Animal Science 5(2): 139-146



Casertana is an Italian autochthonous pig breed. In the past, the breed was common in Campania and surrounding areas in South Italy because it was valued for its productive performance, particularly fattening performance. However, Casertana have been replaced by cosmopolitan lean-type pigs resulting to the dramatic reduction in its recent populations. The concern over the preservation of genetic resources and the increased demand for regional food suggest a new way of maintaining the breed.
