    We used to breed landrace pigs years ago mainly for bacon & showing, was just wondering if the name was still about "The Bridgeworth Heard of Pedigree Landrace" they were sold to farms all over the country as well as far flung countries around the world. It would be nice to know if they were still going somewhere, mind you it was forty odd years ago.

    Thanks very much for the info, very interesting, hope he wasn't the last of the line but suspect he maybe. I will have to have a dig around a bit see if I can find out some more.
