The New Zealand pigs vary greatly being that, in general, the NZ mindset is to breed everything for the sake of preserving genetics or perhaps it's simply a more laidback approach. On the contrary, British practices lead to tight genetics and correct conformation and type. There is a long history in the UK of improvement and competition for the "grand prize". The Trish sow imported in 2005 never produced. A sow line from New Zealand never produced as the imported pig died shortly after release from quarantine. We are very fortunate to have such a range of bloodlines in this country. It is important to preserve the heritage we have been given stewardship over.
