Angeln Saddleback Swine
Also known as: Angler Sattelschwein
The Angeln Saddleback originated in Angeln, a region of northern Germany that belonged to Denmark before 1885. It was developed by a cross between a black-and-white landrace and a Wessex-Saddleback. In 1937, it was accepted as a new breed. In the 1950s, the Angler Sattelschwein had a big share of the market, but a few years later, it seemed to be too fat for the consumer, and the breed is nearly extinct.
Characteristics: White belt on a black body, big-sized, high fertility, good mothers with much milk. Rare breed.
