Any pig farmers?

Ran across this does anyone know anything about Sinclair pigs?

"Hormel miniature (Sinclair or Minnesota) - first developed at Hormel
lnstitute at the University of Minnesota in 1949.  Primary cross between
guinea hogs from Alabama and wild boars from Catalina lsland. Piney Woods
pigs from Louisiana and Ras-n-Lansa pigs from Guam were later incorporated
into the gene pool. In the l96O,s a Yorkshire boar was used to introduce
white colour. Sinclair pigs are derived from this stock. "
