This week's Rare Breed of the Week is the Mangalica pig, also known as the "sheep pig" due to its thick wooly coat similar to that of a sheep! Once on the verge of extinction, this beautiful breed was revived in the early 1990s by a series of breeders. It is now the only surviving pig breed noted for its long coat. By Sharing this post, you can help raise awareness for rare breeds and improve their chances of survival! To support our educational efforts DalbyFarmCountryStore.com
