The Hereford breed was developed in Missouri in the 1920s. They are a cross between the Duroc and Poland China. Resembling Hereford cows, these hogs have a distinguished reddish-brown coat and white face. They are known for their ability to forage, their laid-back dispositions, and ability to thrive on pastures.
It is a slower-growing breed, yielding rich, marbled meat that is red in color. Like the Berkshire pork, Hereford pork has excellent intramuscular fat and a neutral pH, rendering exquisite taste.
