Durocs are red pigs with drooping ears. They are the second most recorded breed of swine in the United States and a major breed in many other countries, especially as a terminal sire or in hybrids. Durocs can range from a very light golden, almost yellow color, to a very dark red color that approaches mahogany.
Durocs are known for their dark red, tender and juicy meat with a rich flavor. It’s high percentage of intramuscular fat, or marbling, gives fresh Duroc pork no need for any injecting or pumping. They are highly adaptable to outdoor pasture raising and are neither too fatty nor too lean. They have excellent feed conversion and grow quickly.
