The Krškopolje or blackbelted pig is the only Slovene autochtonous pig breed. Under extensive management, it shows good adaptability to poor breeding and feeding conditions. It has an excellent meat quality. In the last twenty years, the Krškopolje pig has been neglected, and there has been no systematic breeding. Although some efforts were made in beginning of the seventies to preserve this breed, progress was limited due to inadequate funds. The decline of this breed started before World War II. In a report on an agricultural survey held in 1938, Oblak 1938 reported on pig

breeding as follows: -

. Today the primitive Krškopolje pig is not found as a pure breed. However, there are small populations of this primitive breed in remote parts of the country, which are distinguihable by their appearance, colour and other traits. The Krškopolje pig has the ability to produce fat as well as meat of excellent quality

. In general, the Krškopolje pig is mainly intended for home use and not for sale. It is very fast-growing and also produces a high quantity of fat.
