Mr Nimo,in the mad rush too produce faster growing hogs with higher litter rates,where does this leave the native hog,my fear is the Philippines may lose this little gem,If you stop and think about it for a moment  the native hog has far better hybrid vigor over the whites.I was wondering is there still a market for the natives,would hate to see any country lose such a valueable species.I red somewhere if you breed a native sow to a white boar,the litter will be small and the piglets small like the mother,but if you breed a white sow to a native boar,larger litter size with larger piglets?am considering getting a few natives to hang onto that gene pool just in case some day one never knows,or do you think I am wasting my time. Thank you for your opinion. have a nice day                                mikey

Magleletson sometimes loves the native and it demands for a high price although market wise it is not that stable.

There are some farmers in ifugao and isabela that have done this. They breed their native to a largewhite or landrace. Yes if the sow is native the possibility of small litters is always their  because there body could not accommodate the huge number of piglets. While it is vice versa.

If you want to hang on the gene pool. I would suggest you breed native with native and try to select the larger pig then breed it again to a native until you have a native which is big or comparable to our commercial hog. Although this process will take years.
