The Large Black Pig is an ancient breed from old England that has been overshadowed by the breeders of the white pigs. What is interesting is that the Large Black Pig is highly suitable for free-range rearing in the Philippines. The breed is large and faster growing than the black native pigs in the Philippines. In fact, it is claimed to attain as much as 300 kilos at maturity.
