    If you are talking about a true large black pig or large black hog, check out the web site www.largeblackhogs.com It contains lots of pictures and you can see if this is the breed you mean.

    Proper name for the breed is "Large Black Pig". Otherwise known as "English Large Black Pig". I have several and love them...a great pig to raise.

    From the above website article. Has anybody ever pastured large black pigs with sheep or goats. Any problems ever with adult animals or those with piglets or kids/ lambs?
