Pork is a very popular type of meat with numerous ways in which to prepare and refine it. For example, ham that is enjoyed during Christmas, Danish barbecued pork chop, Asian tenderloin stew, Kebab-Gyros out of pork loin, and grilled pluma pork from Iberico pigs bred with acorn. These are just a few examples of how pork can be enjoyed.

The most important parameters determining the quality of pork are similar to those of beef but more limited to breed, that the animal has been castrated, breeding and feeding. Sex does not play any significant role since the animals are only roughly 5-7 months when slaughtered.
