Quick little summary of the IPP
Shelly Farris of Rigby, Idaho, saw a need for a good grazing pig. She wanted a good-natured animal that would graze the grass instead of rooting. The animals would also need to mature out at a smaller size than traditionally grown pigs, but able to reach a butcher weight in a reasonable amount of time.
She put her dream to reality by developing the Idaho Pasture Pig. She began offering breeding stock to the public in 2012.
Idaho Pasture Pig—also called IPPs—are comprised of Old Berkshire, Duroc and Kunekune breeds. Many years of dedicated work went into creating a pig that is great for small family farms, as well as anyone interested in raising quality pork.
The meat from grass-fed pigs is higher in omega-3 fatty acids. It’s also more marbleized than traditional grown pork, with a deep red color and a sweeter flavor.
Idaho Pasture Pig boars mature to about 350 to 450 pounds. Sows top out about 250 to 350 pounds. With a diet consisting primarily of grass, the pigs will mature to a butcher weight of about 230 to 250 pounds in approximately 10 months.
This is our main man. He is a Boar ginger in color. He will sire all of our litters for the near future.
Don't they look so cozy
