The Meishan pig is a sub-group of the Taihu pig and is a small to medium-sized breed with large drooping ears, and wrinkled black skin. Native to a mild climate in Southern China, the breed is best known for its large litters of 15-16 piglets. Meishan pigs are perhaps one of the most prolific breeds of pig in the world. It is quite common to have two litters per year.
