Landrace boars and gilts are being used in many crossbreeding programs for the production of crossbred breeding stock. Landrace are respected for their length of body, high percentage of carcass weight in the ham and loin, and ideal amount of finish.
There is an admirable meatiness about the Landrace on foot and particularly on the rail. The rumps are long and comparatively level and the hams are plump but trim. The sides are long, of uniform depth and well let down in the flank.
The sows are prolific and satisfactory mothers, and have always been noted for their milk-producing abilities. Known as “America’s Sowherd,” this breed can give your herd the added boost it needs to truly perform at its best in reproduction, while maintaining a high degree of leanness.
