The Oxford Sandy and Black is a rare traditional breed of pig. It is increasing in popularity from virtual extinction twenty years ago.

We are the only official group to represent the OSB breed and are the only group affiliated to the British Pig Association (BPA) and have been established for 35 years. Members of the Society saved the breed from extinction and are dedicated to keeping this breeding going.

We want to provide a forum to promote and conserve the breed, share information and help each other, as well as to advertise for sale birth notified and registered stock from Society members.

If you would like to help the Society with it's work in promoting the breed and providing AI boars to conserve the breed please do join the Society . Membership is £15 a year and forms can be found on our web site www.oxfordsandypigs.co.uk/ or send an email to the Secretary Susan Tanner susan.windwhistle@outlook.com

Members often have stock for sale and their details can be found on the Members Pages.

Why keep an Oxford Sandy & Black pig?

The breed is noted for its many qualities, particularly its excellent temperament and mothering abilities. Generally prolific, the Oxford will function well under most management systems, and produces meat of very high quality and flavour (the markings do not go through to the meat). It finishes quicker than many traditional breeds, and is also less inclined to run to fat.

There can be no more visually attractive breed than the Oxford, with its good nature and ease of management making it a great favourite with all who have ever kept these pigs.

• Multi purpose producing succulent pork, fine bacon & excellent ham.

• An economical pig to keep as it is a natural browser and forager.

• An ideal breed for the beginner and smallholder.

• Hardy, dealing admirably with all types of conditions.

• Docile and easily handled.

• Prolific and an excellent mother.

• The ideal outdoor pig
