The Yorkshire breed was developed in England in the county of York. Later the name was changed to “English Large White” but it is known as Yorkshire throughout most of the rest of the world. There are three types of hogs referred to as the Yorkshire: the large, the middle and the small types. Only the large type has ever gained any prominence in the United States.
