Also known as: Angler Sattelschwein
Originated in Angeln, a region of northern Germany that belonged to Denmark before 1885. A black-and-white landrace was crossed with Wessex-Saddleback and in 1937 accepted as a new race. In the 1950's the Angler Sattelschwein had a big share of the market, but a few years later it seems to be too fat for the consumer and the breed is nearly extincted.
Characteristics: White belt on a black body, big-sized, high fertility, good mothers with much milk. Rare breed.
