The Juliana Pig can take advantage of any forage resources. Therefore, it can live in virtually any productive habitat that can provide enough water to sustain large mammals such as pigs.
The Juliana pig is the the result of crossing several breeds of pigs. They have small to medium ears, a slight potbelly, short hair, sway back, short, straight tail. They are sometimes called “The Painted Miniature,” The legs are longer than the potbellied pig’s and they are slightly smaller. The snout is used to dig into the soil to find food and is a very acute sense organ. They have a gentle disposition and love to play. Pigs are omnivores and are highly social and intelligent animals. Their intelligence is in the range of dolphins and primates.
While pigs are often thought of as dirty smelly animals, the Juliana pig is a very clean animal. Juliana pigs are classed as an adult at 2 years of age. They do 95% of their growing in their first year. They will grow 1-2 inches in their 2nd year due to body fat. The females accumulate a little more on their back than the males.
