Fatty pig breeds are found all over the world, these breeds are extremely valuable genetic resources, and some breeds have high market potential, such as Spanish Iberico pigs and Hungary's Mangalica pigs, whose commercial The products have won international praise and attention. In addition, the ancient Lanyu pig in Taiwan is a new model of small pigs for biomedicine.
