Mangalica Sows Thrive on Pasture

Here at Csarda Haz Farms all our Mangalica sows have access to plenty of pasture. Our sows also have a high litter size. One of our sows, Kinga, has had litters of 13, 12 and 11 piglets. Kinga may be the most prolific Mangalica sow in the country. Kinga is the daughter of a prize boar named Franz from Iowa.

Pastured-raised hogs was the preferred and standard method of swine husbandry in the US up until as late as about 1970. The benefits of pasture to the animals is quite easy to see. The pigs are healthy and happy roaming around eating greens and rooting for walnuts.
