Idaho Pasture Pigs
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 than traditional pigs, are great mothers, are able to live outdoors all year round, and can grow extremely well with a diet of primarily grass.
One of the benefits of this breed is its smaller mature size which makes this breed perfect for homesteads like ours. Ideally, sows should mature out at 250 – 350 pounds whereas the boars should mature out at 350 – 450 pounds which are much smaller than commercial hogs. When feeding a diet of primarily grass, the butcher pigs should reach a hanging weight of about 200 – 250 pounds in approximately 10 months.
