Tips

  • Ankaflo

    Here - on Gut Calmuth (between Remagen and Oberwinter) "Sun King" Frank Asbeck lives and keeps around 60 Hungarian Mangalica wool pigs. You can watch the animals from the fence, who can call a large enclosure their own.

  • "... The woolly pig or Mangalica, as it is called in Hungary, goes back to crosses between Hungarian country pigs and the Serbian Sumadia pig. It has been described since the middle of the 19th century and at times made up over 70 percent of the pig population in Hungary. Since it was bred as a bacon pig, after the Second World War it was finally no longer able to satisfy consumer demands for lean meat and its stock rapidly declined. In addition, it is not suitable for the intensive pig husbandry systems of modern times and needs space for movement because otherwise fertility suffers. However, the breed has been experiencing an upswing again since the 1990s and is now sometimes even being discovered for nature conservation purposes. ... "

  • Gorgeous critters. Rare and critically endangered according to Wikipedia. If you stop at the enclosure, they first solidify into a pillar of salt, giving the impression that they are made of wood. When they become curious, they come very close.

  • You don't get to see that often. Of course you should hold your nose depending on the wind direction. Apparently the stench does not come from the pigs themselves but from a technical facility on the site.
