THE LARGE BLACK HOG ASSOCIATION

The premier registry and support association for Large Black hogs in the United States.

The Large Black Hog Association (LBHA) is the premier registry and support association for Large Black hogs in the United States. We are a non-profit association, managed by a group of dedicated volunteers, owners and breeders of this wonderful heritage hog.

The recovery of this breed in the United States is directly due to the efforts of our members. We are proud of our success and invite you to join us!

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THE LARGE BLACK HOG?

Perhaps the most important thing about Large Blacks is their pedigree.

Perhaps the most important thing about Large Blacks is their pedigree. These are “heritage” hogs. They retain the traits of their ancestors that lived on the pastures and woods of England in the 16th and 17th centuries. They are hardy animals able to handle the cold and heat. They can effectively convert pasture and goodies found in your woods into nutrition. Great mothering ability; good sized litters; longevity. Despite their large size they are well known as very docile hogs. Their dark coloring makes them more resistant to sunburn. And their pork might be the best available; micromarbled and deliciously Old World flavor.

WHY REGISTER WITH THE LBHA?
WE ARE A MEMBER RUN ORGANIZATION

The LBHA consists of a wide variety of people with a common interest – ensuring the long term viability of the large black hog breed. The LBHA Board is elected from the membership and is responsible for helping each member succeed in their endeavors.

WE ACCEPT ANY PUREBRED LARGE BLACK HOG REGISTRATION

Regardless of where it was born, or if it came from artificial insemination, if you can prove it is purebred you can register it with us.

WE ARE MORE THAN JUST A REGISTRY

When you join the LBHA you gain access to a wide network of breeders and enthusiasts who can help with finding hogs, teach how to raise them, help you sell them and provide good contacts to veterinarians, processors, feed suppliers and other people who can help you.

ALL OF YOUR FEES GO BACK TO HELP MEMBERSHIP

The LBHA is a nonprofit organization. The Board members are all volunteers. All of the money collected through registrations and donations is used to fund LBHA activities including outreach and maintaining the registry (the LBHA pays its Registrar a small fee per transaction) and this website.

RECOGNITION AND INTEGRITY

The LBHA has quickly become the registry of choice for serious breeders and buyers of Large Black hogs. We have gained this trust through ensuring the integrity of our registry. While we are easy to work with we have very high standards to make sure that only purebred hogs are registered. The registry database is monitored by two Board members in addition to the Registrar, providing checks and balances to verify that it is managed correctly. We also track the genetic diversity of our registered hogs; we are the only Large Black hog registry in the world that tracks the inbreeding coefficient of all registered hogs and provides help to our breeders to reduce inbreeding throughout the breed. We have established good relationships with the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy and Large Black hog organizations in other countries. When you advertise that your hogs are registered with the LBHA, your customers will know that they are getting great value for their money.

Howdy Folks,
We have a rare opportunity to ship Triangle K piglets from Ohio to New Mexico. If you have ever thought about buying some of the finest Registered Large Black stock in America, now is the time. We have a nice assortment of frisky porkers to choose from. Don't let this trailer pass you by without a stop!

Contact me today as the vet will be here in one week for health certificates. I need to have the buyer information to our vet no later than Tuesday evening in order for the proper permits to be issued. The route will be the most direct from Cambridge, Ohio to New Mexico (this route includes I 70, I 55, I 64, I 44). Ms. Dalton will be going through Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and finally Ohio.

Our current piglets are
Triangle K Warbler 5055-5058 DOB 7/26 CI 10.8
Triangle K Super/Matilda 5237-5244 DOB 8/8 CI 12.7
Triangle K Super/Charlotte 5245-5252 DOB 8/11 CI 15.2
Triangle K Super/Prudence 5253-5260 DOB 9/7 CI 11.5

Prices are $360 (this includes papers in your name, not just litter certificate)
**** Not all of these hogs will be sold as registered, it was just easier to list them as a group than go through each individual piglet ****

If you are interested in this outstanding event and would like to know more details about the shipper and her rates, please contact me as soon as possible. Her space is limited!!

All of our ladies farrowed on pasture and reared their young on pasture. The piglets are all familiar with electric fence and proper grazing practices. The littles are used to horses and cattle and chickens and cats and little kids (and sneaking into the milk stall to steal our hard earned milk!)

Hello Everyone,
Giving you an update on my recovery. I am doing much better, but healing is slow. The great news is my pain level has decreased significantly from what I have been experiencing for the last year. I am back to taking calls and doing the paperwork. I appreciate everyone's patience as I work through all the amazing litter certificate and hog requests. I am still not allowed in my own barn so I will live vicariously through all of yours. :)
Happy Hogging!
