Breeding of KHAPS Black Pigs
The new prolific breed of black pig had been selected for black coat from the crossbred of Meishan pig (M) and Duroc pig (D) since 1997. Over ten years and six generations of selection, the black pigs had showed the stable performance and achieved the breeding goal. It was then officially registered and named as KHAPS Black Pig.
The average reproductive performance of sows are 11.2 heads for the litter size at birth and 9.9 heads for litter size born alive. All pigs are homozygous ESR prolific genotype (MM) and CRC anti-stress genotype (AA).
Usage and extension
The KHAPS Black Pig has the merit and potential as the dam to produce black hogs. We recommend to cross mating with the larger and genetic stably black boars or Duroc boars to produce sound, healthy, and fast-growing hogs.
