Gloucestershire Old Spot

From the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (www.Albc-USA.org):
The breed was developed in the Berkley Vale of Gloucestershire, England, during the 1800s...
Both of the old breeds used to develop the Old Spots are now extinct...
Gloucestershire (pronounced Glostersheer) pigs were selected as excellent foragers and grazers...
The pigs are thrifty, able to make a living from pasture and agricultural by products, such as whey from cheese making, windfall apples in orchards, and the residue from pressing cider...
Old Spots reigned supreme as the pork of choice for discerning palates and in livestock shows through the 1920's and early 1930's...
In 1995, Kelmscott Farm Foundation of Lincolnville, Maine, organized an importation of twenty Gloucestershire piglets to reestablish the purebred population in America.
