Rare Breeds Show all set for British Lop pigs

Britain’s rarest pig breed, the British Lop, is the centre of attention at this year’s Rare Breeds Show and Sale at Melton Mowbray cattle market in Leicestershire on the 7th and 8th September.


This is the only pig breed on display at this major event in the rare breeds’ calendar and the weekend will see the judging of the British Lop Pig of the Year championships when pigs that have won at the major shows around the country this season will come together to select the very best.

For the sale, there is a choice of 12 in-pig gilts born since 1st July 2006 entered; 10 gilts born between the New Year and 31st March this year and nine boars the same age. These cover a wide range of the available bloodlines.
