Berkshire Pig (Dittisham Lady 22)

£90.00£240.00 inc. VAT

The Berkshire pig originated in the Thames Valley, possibly around Wantage, circa 1790 and began as a large tawny red pig, spotted with black; very different to todays Berkshire. The introduction of Asian bloodlines in the late 18th C eventually resulted in the smallish prick-eared black pig we recognise today, with its dished face and white markings at head, feet and tail.

Whilst pouring over lists of previous champions, I noticed the name, Sue Fildes appearing often. Her pigs won at nearly every show, and she lived less than an hour away, near Dittisham on the river Dart. A visit followed.
