From Pig

Spots is a breed of pig.

The National Spotted Swine Record Inc., was formerly the National Spotted Poland China Record. At the 1960 Annual Meeting, the breed's Board of Directors and members voted to change the name of the association from the National Spotted Poland China Record to the National Spotted Swine Record, Inc. Further, it was voted to refer to the breed as Spotted Swine, or SPOTS, rather than the longer previously used name for the breed.

Testimonials from commercial men also point out that the Spotted female is under-rated as the Spotted influence in commercial sow herds adds productivity, gentleness, and durability[2].
