The breed is noted
for its many qualities, particularly its excellent
temperament and mothering abilities. Generally prolific,
the Oxford will function well under most management
systems, and produces meat of very high quality and
flavour (the markings do not go through to the meat).
When crossed with white breeds pure Oxfords produce
highly commercial white hybrids.
There can be no
more visually attractive breed than the Oxford, with its
good nature and ease of management making it a great
favourite with all who have ever kept these pigs.
We currently have
two female lines, Clarissa and Sybil, and one male line
