Default Pig Breeds

Does any one now any thing about the Holsteinian Marsh Pig?
or the Jutlandian Marsh pig?
Where they lived?
What they were like?
What color they were?
What weight they attained?
How tall they grew?
How there ears were set?
What environment they lived in?

Can you elaborate on the two pigs I have asked about.
I am aware it is from Denmark, but there seems to be no information on the above mentioned pigs.....I am also aware that it was used to protest the prevent of raising the Danish Flag during the war years. The Germans invaded Denmark and prevent them from doing just this, so they bred this pig to show them that Denmark was not going to give in..They were kept in peoples front gardens in full display of the Germans as they passed along the road way in their vehicles and on foot. ..... But I would just like to know more about the other two pigs in the breeding program and how long it took to breed this pig. Is it still alive today or is it extinct. Ar they a good meat eating pig or are they just used as pets?

A project pig is was made by crossing an Holstienian, an Jutlandian, an Angeln Saddleback, and the English Saddleback(red variants) which produced a Prodject Pig", which is still alive to day.
The English Saddleback and the Angeln are still alive today, but not the Jutlandian or Holstienian as a single breed, but only as part of the Project Pig, so in effect are still around today.
How long it took I could only guess.
Four breeds, 4 generations?????
It was recognised in 1954.
Don't know where that means it took roughly 2 years???
Probably not, but longer to get the distinctive marks.
