Farmer's Hand Book on Pig Production For the small holders at village level. Native breeds of pig can be found throughout the country. They are a small body size compared to other exotic and crosses pig types. There name varies from region to region, for example: Jangali Bandel / Wild Boar, Pygmi Bandel, Hurra, Banmpudke, Chwanche, Pakhribas Black Pig and Dharane Kalo Banggur.The most common pig breeds for commercial pig production are the Yorkshire, Landrace, Hampshire, Duroc, and Tibetan, Tamworth and Meishan breeds and their
crosses. These breeds produce lean meat combined with efficient feed conversion (3 kg of good feed is needed to produce 1 kg of pork). Compared to local pig breeds, these commercial breeds are less resistant to diseases and suffer more from hot weather and low quality feeds. Pure exotic breeds generally do not perform well in rural pig production systems in Nepal. Breed improvement is important in obtaining improved and high yielding animals. The main purpose of breed improvement is to introduce a positive characteristic into a local breed. For example: by crossbreeding an indigenous sow with an exotic boar; the offspring is likely to inherit the body shape and good growth rate from its father and the tolerance to environmental stress from its mother.
