The Red Wattle Hog Association
Welcome to the Red Wattle Hog Association website. The RWHA is dedicated to recovering and promoting the critically endangered Red Wattle Hog.
The objectives of the RWHA are:
- To conserve and propagate the Red Wattle Hog
- To assist breeders of Red Wattle Hogs to secure breeding stock
- To help new breeders to obtain information
- To provide documentation of pedigreed animals
- To educate our membership and the public about the advantages of raising Red Wattle hogs:
e.g.: temperament, mothering ability, large litters, foraging ability, marbling, tenderness of meat

Background on the "merger" of the Red Wattle Project and the RWHA
The Red Wattle Association board of directors has voted unanimously to partner with Paul Bradshaw (RWHA member and breeder) on a multifunctional website.
Paul invested quite a bit of his time and money in the creation of redwattleproject.com. He has generously offered to allow the RWHA to adopt the site as the official association site. The RWHA board voted unanimously to share the expense of site maintainance with Paul.
Why did the Board of Directors take this step? Paul with the assistance of Doug Meyer of Mountain Niche Design Services has created a very user friendly site with facilities that will allow members to research blood lines, try out potential matings, and calculate inbreeding coefficients. In addition, the forum allows folks to share successes and failures, ask questions, get information from the association and post animals for sale.
Our former site redwattle.org will now redirect to this site. (THANKS TO BILL BURGE FOR TAKING CARE OF THIS!)
Watch for more updates soon!
