Sažetak
Black Slavonian pig is an autochthonous Croatian breed created in the second half of the 19th century. Until the 1950s it was the most
widespread breed in the Slavonia, mainly used for the production of fat and meat products. Recently, the population was drastically
reduced and in 1990s the survival of the breed was endangered. Due to current protection measures the eective population rather
increased; in 2006 there were 46 boars and 604 sows. The breed is well adopted for outdoor keeping. Traditional production includes
the utilization of pasture and woodland with supplement of a small amount of grains. Litter size of the breed is low, on average 7-8
piglets. The fattening abilities are also modest, with low daily gains and high share of fat in the carcass. However, the meat quality is
good, with high content of intramuscular fat (6-7%) and high appreciation of its meat products, like Slavonian kulen sausage. As a
part of current trends of support of sustainable and traditional food production systems, it becomes important to preserve the pro-
duction systems of local breeds and their products. Increase in production of traditional meat products, like Slavonian kulen, could be
the best way for long-term preservation of Black Slavonian breed as an integral part of future biological diversity.
