Mora Romagnola Pig Breed

Mora Romagnola Pig Breed
Slow Food Presidium


Mora Romagnola pig breed is unmistakable for its dark brown coat, almost black, after which it has been named. It is a pig breed with a tapered body, about 80 cm at withers and reaching a weight of 250-300 kilos. The boars, smaller than the sows, have very long tusks, like wild boars. Actually, Mora Romagnola breed is closer to the wild ancestor than the breeds usually raised by man. It was bred until the 1950s, then its use was abandoned and the breed risked extinction, until it has been recently recovered, since the 1980s.
