I think we might be expecting..... I think she is still to small but she has that "ridge" under her belly and her tummy is getting round.

Congratulations a fine looking group.

I love the third one from the left. All in!

Our UK Balsham Ellen is about ready to pop! I witnessed a breeding on March 20 and we have had her in her farrowing pen for 2 weeks now. She is my favorite sow and is the sweetest pig we have. She was bred to our UK Chilthorne Patrick boar who also has the sweetest personality. The CI of the piglets will be
0.0023% - this is the reason we imported these GOS pigs. We have Breeder pairs of our Pure UK stock ready to ship at the end of July to GOSPBU members $900.00 per pair and 50% down to hold them.

One of the best hams we have ever had came from one of our GOS that was raised in an old filbert orchard of one of our customers. Starting Monday we will start feeding raw shelled Hazelnuts to our butcher weaners. ... See MoreSee Less

That is quite a score! We have black walnut here but when they are out of season we use peanuts or black sunflowers. It also is a vital tool in getting them loaded, just throw in some peanuts and they load themselves.

PEDv is still here and we are learning more all the time. Just read this article on Pig Progress. ... See MoreSee Less

About The Breed

The earliest mention of the Gloucestershire Old Spots breed in English literature dates to around 1790. The Old Spots pig is friendly, funny, and floppy-eared, with a large, rounded body.  They are white in color and can be sparsely or liberally decorated with black spots.

About Us

In the summer of 2013 many GOS breeders were looking for a place to discuss different aspects of raising GOS pigs. When a collective group of GOS breeders had a chance to meet, and talk about the many great ways to improve the herd, the GOSPBU was born.
