  • Short Summary

    Farm animals - two breeds of pigs and prize Hungarian sheep.

  • Description

    Hungary, story about wire-haired pigs.

    L/S of large herd of pigs running down a hill away from a farmhouse. M/S of large number of pigs - they look weird as they have long curly hair. We then see another breed of pigs - this time smooth skinned. Man pours a bucket of slops into a trough for the pigs. The pigs scrabble to get the the food, climbing over each other. Near Szarvas we see a prize Hungarian sheep.

    L/S of the sheep walking towards the camera by some farm buildings. Another shot of the sheep being herded by shepherds. C/U of a few of the sheep. C/Us of a Hungarian woman shearing one of the sheep with hand shears. Contrasted with Australia where the sheep shears are electric (images missing). Story incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 671. (Paper records state 670 but number on main title is 671.)
