Scientists are investigating if alternative pig breeds can supply new, tasty meat products.

Senior scientist Hanne Christine Bertram from the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, Aarhus University, is the leader of a 3½-year project that includes research in the woolly Mangalitza pig from Hungary and high-pressure processing of pork.

The first step in the process is to produce enough animals for the studies. Danish Pig Production is responsible for mating Danish Landrace sows with Hungarian woolly boars or inseminating them with semen from Iberian boars. The sows are expected to farrow at the end of the summer and the first meat samples should be ready for analysis in the spring of 2010.
