Mangalitsa Photos

Just learning to eat grass.

I saw some photos of Mangalitsa pigs in Europe. These guys are selling red Mangalitsas.

Just look at what a good job they've done of clearing the land. Besides the pigs, a few insects and bacteria, there's almost no other life in their pigpen. If they did see any life, the pigs would probably eat it, because that's how pigs are.

Outside the pen, there's life.

It has to eat that shrub before the other pigs get it.

So few sows, so much destruction.

Better eat that grass before the other pigs do.

From another ad for Mangalitsas - someone has some cute piglets for sale:

And here's a photo from Michigan of Mark Baker's new Mangalitsa piglets. Our American ones are just as cute as the ones in Europe.

And an update - Kylan Hoover - previously mentioned many times on this blog, bought some older Mangalitsa pigs from Mark Baker.

Of course, with all these cute piglet photos, we mustn't forget that eventually, Mangalitsa piglets become big, ugly, pushy, fat and ultimately tasty pigs. As this photo from Mosefund, taken at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) demonstrates:

That last picture at the bottom might be one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
