The most distinctive feature of the Mulefoot hog is its solid hoof, which resembles that of a mule. It was bred to have a solid hoof rather than the typical cloven hoof to eliminate the threat of foot rot, thus making it suitable for wet areas. They fatten quite easily and a mature hog weighs in at the 500-600 pound range. The Mulefoot peaked in popularity about a century ago, with breeders found in most Midwestern and some southern states. As the amount of area for foraging decreased and the practice of feeding hogs in pens increased, the breed fell out of favor. The Mulefoot is today the most rare of American swine breeds.
