Feature animal - Tamworth pig

Tamworth pig

Developed in the Staffordshire area of England in the early 1800s, Tamworth pigs were first imported to Canada around 1870. They have since become one of the best bacon-producing breeds. The Tamworth is more closely related to the old English forest pigs than to other modern English breeds. Its smaller size and golden-red to dark-red colour distinguish it from the Museum’s other breeds.
