Transcript of Group 5 Piggies!!!

Saddleback
Origin:
The Saddleback, renowned for its bacon, originates from various parts of the United Kingdom and was registered in 1918 by pig breeders. However, the roots of the pig are unknown; with experts claiming it originated at different times. (Essex (pig) – Wikipedia 2014)
There are also three main types of Saddleback pig, each with its own background;
- Wessex Saddleback: Introduced to Australia and New Zealand by England in the early 20th century for bacon. The breed has since plummeted in population and is now considered critically endangered by the Australian pig breeding association.
- Essex Saddleback: A breed of domestic pig that originated in the United Kingdom, known to be smaller than its mid-sized counterparts and easy to maintain. (wiki Essex Saddleback)
- The British Saddleback: A cross between the Wessex and Essex Saddleback originating from Britain in the 20th century
(Rare Breeds Survival Trust 2014; Swine Breed Facts Saddleback Pig 2014)

Character:
Originally bred as bacon pigs, the Saddleback is known to be a hardy breed of pig. The Saddleback has also adapted to foraging in forest regions and thus it can survive in most outdoor conditions. The breed is said to be very social and is easy to maintain. The sow is said to have excellent maternal instincts. (Quatre Saisons – Natural Sustainable Farming 2014)

Colour:
The Saddleback is a black pig with a white stripe that extends from one foot, over the shoulder to the other foot, which resembles a Saddleback.
Essex Saddleback – relatively small compared to its counterparts, this breed has ‘pricked’ ears with the same pattern as the others.
British Saddleback – Larger than its counterparts, has lop ears with the same white stripe around the front or back of its body.
(Rare Breeds Survival Trust 2014)

Famous:
The Saddleback is famous for the pattern on its body, which resembles a Saddleback. The Wessex Saddleback is mostly extinct in its origins. However in Australia it enjoys time in the spotlight being featured in roadshows for events such as Easter or Christmas and is featured in some Australian lifestyle programs. (Wessex Saddleback – Wikipedia 2014)

Potbellied

Landrace
Origin
Originating in Denmark, the Landrace pig was developed by breeding the Large White pig with the country’s native pig. First being imported by England, registered breeding stock imports became common throughout Northern Ireland, New Zealand and Australia. The breed is now the second most popular in Australia, trailing behind the Large White. (Landrace – Wikipedia 2014)

Character
Originally they were known to develop weak legs and were prone to develop nervous disorders. Some of the more common nervous disorders, like Porcine Stress Syndrome, are still known to affect some strands of Landrace pigs today. Also of note, is their rapid growth in early years, outweighing most other breeds at the age of weaning. (Department of Primary Industries 2014)

Colour
The landrace breed is lop eared and predominantly white skinned and free from black hair. They are typically long bodied with long snouts. (Department of Primary Industries 2014)

Famous
When his breed of pig was initially introduced in Denmark, it significantly helped the country become the leading bacon-exporting country in the world. As a result, Denmark refused to export purebred Landrace pigs for many years in an attempt to protect that position. They have been since exported to more than 30 countries around the world. (Danish Landrace (pig) – Wikipedia 2014; Department of Primary Industries 2014)

(The Different Breeds of Swine - Duroc 2014)
Yorkshire (Large White)
Origin
Yorkshire pigs were developed in the 18th century in the English county of York, when a local large pig was breed with a white Chinese pig. Originally called Large White, they’re more widely known as Yorkshire and as a breed were first recognized in 1886. Yorkshire pigs are mainly used for their meat and for crossbreeding. (Breeds of Livestock - Yorkshire Swine 2014; Large White (pig) - Wikipedia 2014)

Character
The Yorkshire pig is considered to be smarter than the family pet dog. They respond well to social interaction and are quite active, especially when foraging for food. They are considerably hardy and are suited to almost any climate. Yorkshire pigs are also noted for having good mothering skills. (Large White (pig) - Wikipedia 2014)

Colour
These pigs are pink with a covering of fine white hair. They have erect ears, a dish like face and long deep sides. Yorkshire pigs grow fast and can grow in excess of 294 kilograms. This type of pig has a life span to 6-10 years, but most are sent to the abattoir at six months. (Breeds of Livestock - Yorkshire Swine 2014; Large White (pig) - Wikipedia 2014)

Famous
The Yorkshire breed of pig stars in the 1995 Australian movie ‘Babe – A Little Pig Goes a Long Way’. The story is about a pig that wants to be a sheepdog, which inevitably saves the farm. As Yorkshire pigs grow fast, 48 pigs were used in the making of the film as well as an animatronic double. (Babe (film) - Wikipedia 2014)

Black Pied
(Pig Breeds 2014)


Origin
Potbellied pigs are members of the Suidae family of animals. (The Merck Manuals 2014) They are relatives of the pigs grown commercially for pork. The breed originated in Southeast Asia and was introduced to the United States, Canada and European countries in the mid-1980s; since then, they have become popular as pets.

Character
Potbellied pigs are curious animals with a humorous disposition, affectionate, curious, playful, clean, generally quiet, odor free and an intelligence only second to that of a dog. (Animals: Explore. Discover. Connect 2014) Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs are popular pets due to their smaller size, lack of shedding, and tough skin, which resists fleas and parasites. They can be trained to the same extent as a dog and can even be house broken. The temperament of the potbellied pig may vary depending on the gender of the pig. Males are more aggressive and females can become quite territorial when pregnant. Potbellied pigs go through a similar ‘teenage’ phase where they mature. (Choosing an Exotic Pet 2014)

Colour
Most are black with occasional white on the snout, head, feet, or tail, but some are gray or completely white. Potbellied pigs have a short to medium wrinkled snout, small erect ear, a short neck, a pronounced potbelly, a swayed back, and a straight tail with a switch at the end. (The Merck Manuals 2014) Mature pigs in trim condition weigh 50 to 95 pounds, but can exceed this weight, and animals weighing over 150 pounds are common. They may live from 8 to 25 years, with a life span of 10 to 15 years common in healthy pigs. (Choosing an Exotic Pet 2014)

Famous
Potbellied pigs are the fourth smartest animal, and can be trained commands such as “sit” and “lie down,” and can be litter trained or house trained. When keeping these animals as pets, one must keep in mind that this intelligence can be turned against you, as the can become quite talented at opening doors. (Dog Breed Info Center 2014)

Group 5 Credibility!!!
Group 5 have gathered an array of resources to collectively identify the origin, character, colour and famous nature of a variety of pig breeds. This information has been sourced from a collection of areas, as individuals worked on their respective sections. However, in looking at the credibility of these resources, we have viewed a majority of them from similar search points, which brings together the collective idea of the credibility of our sources.

As Metzger (2007) describes there are a number of key points that need to be viewed i.e. a checklist of items, to validate the credibility of an online source:
- Accuracy, Authority, Objectivity, Currency and Coverage.

The use of ‘Creative Commons’ (CC Search 2014) is where a vast majority of our resources derived from as this site gives you access to information and image sites that allow for reproduction when creating an online project such as our Prezi on Piggies!. The site creates links with Metzger’s (2007) described checklist in connecting authority, currency and coverage in depth!

Additional information has been sort from a variety of Department sites. These have provided materials on specificities of the details needed for the pig information of a particular breed of pig. These sites connect with Metzger’s (2007) checklist of accuracy, authority, objectivity and currency as they have been created by authors who specialize in pig genetics, breeding and livestock development. The information articles are published on a website which is developed by the NSW Government which acquires the majority of its material from corporate publications.

Lastly, some information has been sourced from Wikipedia sites. These have been used, as the information presented on these pages, has been sourced from a vast array of reliable sources including the British Museum of Natural History. Although most would think Wikipedia is not a credible source, the information taken from these pages for this online resource have been connected to Metzger’s (2007) idea of authority and currency. The information presented is up to date and sourced from credible sources such as museums and specialists in the field of a variety of different pig breeds.

Collectively we feel our sources used have connected with Metzger’s (2007) checklist, and have created a well connected reliable online resource.
