    this is our new feeder pig. "Fat Back" I bought him last week-end what kind of pig or what cross do ya think he is? The man I bought him from was selling them for his father who is in the hosp and had no clue.
    I just think he is too cool lookin :) and very sweet.

    Agmantoo could be right. With the pointed ears and short snout, it could possibly be a Berkshire cross. They'll throw spots sometimes as well.

    In all honesty, it could be anything - and those bloody ears take the cake :)
    I've had Duroc/Lge Whites come out looking like him. I would be almost certain there is Duroc in there somewhere but wouldn't like to hazard a guess as to the rest of his breeding.

    Cheers,

    You are in deep deep trouble as you have an army pig. This was grown to be camouflaged so the enemy cannot see them sneak up on them and scare the H--l out of them therefore letting the US army know the enemy's position.

    THESE ARE GOV"T PROPERTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOL

    Duroc and poland china cross. It was a popular cross several years ago. The red with black spots is the giveaway.

    I have some Tamworth/black Poland China X's that look a lot like this, just "redder".

    With those ears he looks like he's going to fly away. And with that camo coloring he must be a secret gov't project.
