The present study aimed at investigating characteristics of reproduction, growth and meat quality traits of Lung pu pig breed was undertaken. Data collected from 40 sows, 10 boars and 48 fattening Lung Pu pigs in different experiments in Meo Vac and Hoang Su Phi districts, belonging Ha Giang province from 2006 to 2007 were used. It was found out in the survey that Lung Pu pig had the black coat color, except the front, feet and end of the tail; medium to big sizes and a good adaptation to harsh conditions of the high mountain areas of Vietnam. The number born alive (NBA) of first two litters in trails 1 was higher than that of the control groups. The number of weaned pigs (NW), weight at birth (BW) and weaning (WW) had similar tendency as NBA. The average daily gain (ADG) of selected pigs and control groups was 396.75, 20.17 g/day, respectively. The loin area was 22.09 cm2 and lipid percentage was 25.34%. Meat percentage was similar to that of other local pigs. It appeared that selected Lung Pu pigs performed better than unselected Lung Pu pigs (the control groups). Therefore, to get any success in the genetic improvement and/or genetic conservation of Lung Pu pigs, nuclear herds should be established and more training courses for farmers would be necessary.
