Signs at Verkerks shop saying their pork is female intrigued me.
I asked why, and was told they buy only female pigs. Apparently their meat is more tender. The meat of male pigs smells and tastes differently, and discerning customers, especially Asians, can tell. I wonder what happens to the male pigs? Presumably they go to less discerning butchers and customers.
Apologies to vegetarians for this post.

at eating even female pork?”
