This pork is the Duroc breed. The tale of the Duroc bloodline begins with Christopher Columbus who brought a premium hog breed to the new world best known for its red color, quick growth, deep body, broad ham and shoulder. This bloodline was kept intact for centuries.
Much later, in the early 1800’s, a farmer named Harry Kelsey owned a famous trotting stallion named “DUROC.” When cattleman Isaac Frink came to see the stallion he also noticed the remarkable red pigs Kelsey was raising. Frink was fascinated by the pigs and purchased several from Kelsey. The hog breed did not at this time have an official name, So Frink named them after Kelsey’s prize horse and the red hogs thus became known as Duroc.
Durocs were identified as a superior genetic source for improving eating qualities of pork in the recent National Pork Producers Council Terminal Sire Line Evaluation. Their advantage in muscle quality combined with their well-established ability to grow fast has positioned the Duroc breed as an outstanding breed.
The Duroc pork line represents the top 2% of pork with superior color and freshness through improved PH and state of the art harvest methods. Duroc pork boasts superior marbling and increased intramuscular fat to lend itself to a naturally juicer more tender product.
