Saving the Breed

Mangalistsa pigs take 18-24 months to grow to market weight. Thats compared to 6 months for commercial factory pig and around 9 months for other heritage breeds.

This means to save this breed people must be willing to pay significantly more than on "premium" pork from even a boutique butcher shop.
