The Woolly Coat

Mangalitsa pigs have woolly coats. Such coats make them look cute, even if they are mean.

I was reading that the woolly coats offer excellent protection from the sun and the cold - but they are particularly bad in wet conditions.

This means that raising Mangalitsa pigs in places like Texas or Utah ought to work fine. I'm guessing Florida might be too wet for them.

I never heard of such pigs before so am glad to learn about them . . . I love pork, but have found factory farmig and slaughtering of them both unethical, and not so tasty
