The Mangalica pig is around 300 years old with a thick bristle coat. The vital animal actually came to Austria from Hungary for the first time during the monarchy.
The name "woolly pig" comes from the unusual coat, which consists of an undercoat and bristles. It has been proven that the percentage of fat in woolly pigs is very high at 70 percent and contains healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
The animals at the Hotel Leitenhof live three times as old as conventional fattening pigs. A very high value is placed on animal welfare. The woolly pigs are very social animals and can be admired live in the surrounding forest.
