Breed: Tamworth

Glen

The red-gold hair of the Tamworth ensures that it is one of the most easily recognisable of the traditional pig breeds.  A typical Tamworth has the longest snout of the present day domestic breeds.  It has prick ears, giving it an alert appearance.  The Tamworth  is  hardy,  and  can  be  kept  in  environments  ranging from  rough  pasture  to  meadowland.  The sows are excellent mothers, being milky, docile, and protective of their young.
