Shipping

We are working very hard to minimize shipping costs while still ensuring quality product at your door. Feedback from the Spring has been that we are providing shipping costs as low as anyone in the business. Check the website for typical shipping costs to various locations. We are working in collaboration with Adam Beck @ Crossroads Genetics to help reduce shipping costs in 2 ways. When you order from both studs, you can have the order combined to ship from either stud. Semen must be per-ordered for combined shipping option. Pick-up of semen from either Premium Blend Genetics or Crossroads Genetics may be made at either location on the afternoon/evening of collection day. This will get the semen within 1 hour’s drive for much of Indiana and many parts of Ohio and Illinois.

WELCOME

We are very proud to present to you our Fall 2012 boar line-up. We began Premium Blend Genetics this spring and the response has been beyond what we could have dreamed. Looking at the boars we have to offer, we could not be prouder and more confident in their ability to produce banner grabbers and breed improvers. So many people have been instrumental in helping us get started and we are truly humbled to be able to call so many - good friends. We would like to thank all the customers this spring/ summer who trusted that we would deliver a high quality product. We know that there are few things as frustrating/disappointing as seeing a sow come back into heat when you know you did everything possible to make sure she stuck. We promise that the semen you are receiving is the exact same semen we are putting in our sows and we will do everything possible to make sure it is as good as it can possibly be when it arrives at your door. All the boars are doing great, and are ready to roll. Many have the spring season under their belt and are proven to be able to settle sows at a very high conception rate with early reports coming in of very large and high-quality litters. Thank You,

The Laird’s - Ted, Re-

Superman

BAR NONE X WALK THE DOG X SUGAR DADDY • STRESS CARRIER BRED BY SARAH JONES & BRIAN BENNETT (TX) • OWNED WITH CHRIS JONES & FAMILY

They say nothing good ever happens after midnight – well we beg to differ in at least one instance as it was around 3:00 AM when we met Chris Jones in a hotel parking lot in Oklahoma to pick up Superman - and we think that will prove to be a very good thing. When Superman rolled out of the trailer and onto the paved hotel parking and we saw those steer legs reaching forward and looking like they were going to rip the pavement up as he planted them - we knew things had just changed and we were now being handed the best Berkshire we had ever seen – period – no debate – no question – not a close second. Royal blood runs thru his veins as Superman’s sire was Bar None – the Reserve Overall weanling at Duncan and his dam was the Champion Berk gilt @ Houston 2011. Superman and his littermates cut a wide swath thru Texas this spring. Six littermates shown – Superman wins 5 out of 6 Dark OPBs and comes to PBG – his littermate negative boar goes to Stephens (unfortunately passed away early) – 4 gilts shown stand 1st - 2nd & Champion Overall Purebred @ San Angelo and the other 2 go 1st -3rd & Champion Berk @ Houston. Makes us feel very good about predictability. Bred by Brian Bennett (Dublin TX) and Sarah Jones (Conroe TX). We are very grateful to the Jones family for staying committed to sending this guy north to headline what we think is one of the premier line-ups of Berkshire sires in the country. They had LOTS of options ($$$$$$) with this guy and we are THRILLED to have him here. If he sires like he looks - the competition better have some Krytonite! < Superman’s Sisters - Champion Purebred at San Angelo (Left) Champion Berkshire at Houston (Right)

Torge

TIME BANDIT X HEAD OF THE CLASS • STRESS NEGATIVE

Not much needs to be said about this “living legend” in the Berkshire breed. Sired 9 State Fair Champion or Reserve Champion Berkshire Barrows in 2011, including the Champion Berk barrow at Wisconsin that Warren Beeler said was the best he had seen! Torge’s track record of winning shows is unrivaled and we are thrilled to have him here at PBG. We loved him and his littermate sister at NBS and were not surprised that he accomplished what he did in his first full season. When we picked him up from Bryce this summer, it was even more obvious to us why he has been so successful. He is massive boned, extremely sound, and very tall at the point of his shoulder. We think this guy can continue his dominance in siring better Berkshires for many years to come! This purchase was a no-brainer for us as we plan to use him hard on Different Strokes and Superman daughters – OH MY!

Mr. D

DIFFERENT STROKES X WHAT ELSE • STRESS NEGATIVE

If you are looking for a Berk boar that is far from ordinary---Mr. D is your boar! This boar is made to make Berkshire showpigs that can run with the best of them! For those that won’t be able to see him in person, we can tell you that he is a littermate to the December gilt that we showed at WPX and team Purebred shows that we received many favorable comments on. We certainly LOVE pushing the envelope in areas and we know that gilt and Mr. D are WAY out there. Like his littermate sister, Mr. D is very moderate in his frame, extreme in his bone, foot size, and width, yet still very cool and attractive up through his front end. Where we think Mr D is really unique is in how he carries his massive top-shape back into his ham-loin as smooth as any Berkshire we have seen. This guy is the most unique Berkshire boar we have ever bred! If you are looking to add power, muscle and bone to your sows and still stay sound and square on all four corners we are confident Mr. D can get it done.

The BEAST. Massive everywhere. We think he has a shot to be a legend for making Berkshire breeding stock for generations to come. Being a direct son of our foundation Berkshire sow Miss Hathaway – we think he is genetically packed with predictability. We think he is best described as Big Stick in a Berkshire Package.

Honey Badger GARY COLEMAN X MISSY HATHAWAY STRESS NEGATIVE Great one that we knew had to be a boar the day he was born and was the boar that convinced us to finally go ahead and start Premium Blend.

Freak chisel front, a chest floor that makes your jaw hit the ground, muscled like a Hamp and a tail set that Yorkshires would envy. Even the most die-hard berk-a-phobe would like how clean fronted he is. We have been very pleased with visitor’s reactions to Honey Badger and most comment on his extension and levelness. If you need to clean up your Berks front ends, Honeybadger should do it as good as any.

Bucket List BUCK 1-6 X SQUARE D • STRESS NEGATIVE BRED BY AUSTIN BERTOLINO One thing we know about red ones is that we really liked Riggs & Thurston’s Buck 1-6 boar last year at STC. So, we were really interested when Austin contacted us about this son of Buck 1-6 that he had raised. Really structurally correct on his feet and in his hip design, but what hit us the hardest is how powerfully he comes out of his blade and back into his ham / loin. We think this Buck 1-6 son might give the Duroc breeders the chance to check a few items off of their list! IN-SEASON

Rusty Gold

SYCAMORE X YELLOW DOG • STRESS NEGATIVE BRED BY DOUG LOOF We like looking at good hogs of any color and we always admire the ones that look like they can move their breed way forward. Watching the Hereford show at the Indiana State Fair the past few years, there have certainly been some very interesting Hereford’s being shown and when we see those kind start popping up we think the future could be really fun. So when Doug Loof gave us a call telling us he had the best Hereford boar that he has ever raised, we were definitely interested in checking him out. Rusty Gold is extreme in base width coming at you – feet and legs square to the ground and not only is he perfectly marked, Doug tells us the whole litter is as well. We think Rusty Gold has a shot to do some very cool things for the Hereford breed.

Bone Collector

HILLBILLY BONE X (HEAVYWEIGHT X CROSSBOW) • STRESS NEGATIVE BRED BY CODY MCCLEARY & KENT SHOWPIGS

We can’t say $45,000 for ¾ interest in any boar will ever feel cheap but it feels more and more like a bargain as 2012 progresses. If you have not had the opportunity, we invite you to check out his video on our website as we have had several comments that Bone Collector looks as good in his video as any boar they have seen. Massive boned but struts around the farm with his head up. Add to that the soundness, flexibilty, height at the point of the shoulder and extension in his neck. Add to that the massive RIB CAGE. Add to that he is a HILLBILLY BONES son. Add to that he is HEAVYWEIGHT on CROSSBOW on his momma’s side. Add to that the fact that he is STRESS NEGATIVE. We think it all adds up to the TOTAL PACKAGE. Conception on all boars has been incredible this Spring and Bone Collector gets it done with the best of them. We know there are some really good options for Hillbilly Bone sons out there and we offer Bone Collector as a very good choice.

COUNTY FARE X ROXY (WARFARE’S DAM) • STRESS CARRIER BRED BY MIKE FISCHER & BLAKE EDWARDS

FARE WARNING needs to be used – HARD. Our $15,000 weanling purchase from the folks that brought you the man himself – WARFARE. FARE WARNING! is the only other boar walking the planet out of ROXY – WarFare’s momma. We know the Hillbilly Bone wave is sweeping the land and we LOVE our Hillbilly Bone son, Bone Collector, but we are also very, very proud of FARE WARNING! He is incredibly stout, wide – front and rear - and heavy muscled, but what we think is most unique about him is that he does all this in a BIG BODIED, correctly designed, sound package – He is NOT a slow growing wait-a-year-to-show type. If this guy won’t make winning barrows and boars---we will be very surprised. We feel FARE WARNING! has a chance to follow in his brother’s giant footsteps!

Judge Jason Hirschfeld described this guy as being a “creature” - and we thought that was a perfect description – unfortunately that name is taken!

Night Shift 9-TO-5 X BATMAN • STRESS CARRIER RAISED BY TRIPLE L SHOWPIGS We received a call that we should come and check out the Triple L entry at the Bleedin Purple sale and are glad we made the short trip over to Richmond to take a look. Out of Fischer’s 9-to-5 Warfare son on a Batman dam, he is as square and correct as they come. He looks like he was manufactured with a level and a square with joints as clean as they get. Night Shift’s pasterns are up where they need to be and we think he will be able to help lots of issues there pretty fast. Growth pattern looks like he is going to be one that will let that bone develop while he cruises to weight. We think Night Shift will work great on big framed sows that need structure corrected while being able to add all the shape you would want.

White Horse

MAN OF STEEL X BIG EM • STRESS CARRIER BRED BY NOAH HORSLEY White Horse is a crossbred boar that is very good where we think many will be looking very hard and very soon to make their crossbreds better! He is great in his design, being elevated at the point of his shoulder, and level from shoulder to hip. He is extremely flexible and sound off of both ends with an ideal pastern set (something that seems to be getting more and more critical with every passing breeding season). AND he does that with tons of power.

As a great bonus, he offers a pedigree that will be an outcross to many of the popular lines today! If you have been looking for a white cross that will fix a lot of areas and not take your bone and power and bury it in the back forty – we strongly recommend White Horse.

Mayhem

CAPITAL INVESTMENT X LONG TIME COMING • STRESS NEGATIVE BRED BY HEARLTAND ELITE SHOWPIGS

Mayhem is a Hampshire boar that is flat out exciting to us. He is moderate in his frame, HUGE in his bone and foot, extremely wide coming and going, all while traveling comfortably & straight on all four. We picked Mayhem out the night before the show as the Hampshire boar we wanted to bring home from Louisville, and were very pleased when we were able to load him up. We believe that he has a shot to sire Hampshires that have the power, width, muscle and bone necessary to compete in combination with the soundness, design and skeletal correctness to make it to show day! Mayhem’s mother was the Reserve Hamp Gilt at the 2011 Indiana State Fair. Mayhem’s littermate just won Grand Overall Barrow @ Wabash County (IN) and that is one tough banner to bring home. We are planning to give Mayhem a really good chance on many of our very best sows.

Black Ice

FROZEN IN TIME X BLACK LABEL 5-1 • STRESS NEGATIVE BRED BY PETERS FARMS

Why would anybody pay $9500 for a 2 month old Hamp boar? Our answer is - What would it take to own Black Ice if he looks like he did at the Extravaganza when he weighs 350 lbs? More than any other breed, we love trying to piece together Hampshires and we thought Black Ice would give us access to a very interesting piece to try to make it all fit together. We saw four things we loved about Black Ice – 1) front and rear toes that were short and evenly spread 2) naturally massive rib cage, 3) ideal rear hip design and 4) outcross to Model T. We have been asked more about the progress of Black Ice than any other boar we have purchased and early on our answer was – “we’ll see”. The answer now is – “This could get very interesting.” Karl told us we would need to be patient until about 200 lbs and then - watch out – and that is exactly how things have played out. If you have the Hamp addiction, Black Ice may become the drug of choice!

Alabama Outlaw

HOMEBODY X MODEL T • STRESS NEGATIVE OWNED WITH RONNIE OUTLOAW

Alabama Outlaw is a littermate to the gilts we sold last fall that went on to win Grand Overall Gilt @ 2012 NJSA Western and Champion Hampshire @ 2012 OYE. AO’s sire – HomeBody - (Son of Newnum’s Reserve Overall Gilt @ 2009 NJSS) had a really good year in 2011-2012. For us he made Hampshires as correct and sound as any we have had in a long time. In addition to the NJSA Western Grand Overall Gilt and the OYE Grand Hampshire Gilt, he also sired our Reserve Grand Gilt @ the 2012 Indiana State Fair Open which judge Steve Rodibaugh said “If you haven’t tried raising a Hampshire gilt that is this correct and sound, you don’t understand how hard this is to do”. As the 2012 show season unfolds, Alabama Outlaw gets more and more valuable in our eyes as a really good option to get feet and legs back under Hamphires, while keeping the shape and muscle needed to win, but avoiding the dreaded bowling-ball joints. If you want sound Hampshires that still have the width, muscle, & look to get it done, we HIGHLY recommend Alabama Outlaw.

PRETTY GOOD HOG X NO JUSTICE • STRESS CARRIER BRED BY BOICKENS • OWNED WITH TUCKER POLANDS, IOWA

Done Deal

Our family roots run very deep in the Poland breed as that is where my Grandfather Chester Meal started in the purebred business in 1916. The Meal’s cut a pretty big swath in those days with their Polands showing 5 Polands to Grand Overall 4-H Barrow honors at the Indiana State Fair. We are committed to building our Poland herd to that same level of excellence. We went to Springfield hoping to find a great Poland boar to continue the building process and we hoped he would be an outcross to the great PSSS Nom Nom Nom. We heard about the Boicken boar very soon after we arrived and when we saw him we were pretty sure it was a Done Deal that he was the one we needed to bring home. This Poland boar is so opened up and stout from end to end, with great center body and mass. In addition to this, he has a very correct set to his angles and moves around the yard with ease. We are thrilled to own the boar we hope can move our herd and the Poland breed to new levels. Where DONE DEAL is good – width, and structure, he is really good! Judge Bill Range described this boar as being the Poland boar that can get things DONE where the Poland breed needs to get things DONE. We expect great things in the near future - we think it’s a DONE DEAL!

TIME CHANGE X FREE & EASY â&#x20AC;˘ STRESS NEGATIVE BRED BY HIRSCHFELD LIVESTOCK

Shark Bait

When our good friend Chris (SharkBait) Shinker told us how excited they were at A Cut Above about their new young spot herdsire - Change It Up, we jumped at the chance to own his full brother. This negative boar offers an interesting contrast to DOUBLE TAKE, and we feel we have two very good, but very different, Spot boars that can work on almost any spot female you are looking to breed. This guy is heavy, heavy boned, cool designed, and sound off both ends and does it in a very complete package. He is so complete and so sound and beautifully profiling that it tends to hide his extremes but then you take another look and you see his massive bone, and then you see how blown apart he is in his chest floor, and then you see muscle coming smoothly out of his blade and just exploding into his top and you just start to smile at what he might be able to do. We think he will be very versatile in being able to make boars, gilts, and barrows that will be competitive in the showring and breeding pen. From a proven pedigree, and repeat mating, SharkBait is an exciting Spot boar!

DOUBLE TAKE is one exciting Spot boar!

This is one massive, wide, heavy boned dude! We think he was the widest chested boar we saw of any color in the barn at WPX, and we expect him to produce elite spot showpigs that will be tough to beat. If you need muscle, width, and PIPE – PIPE – PIPE – we proudly offer Double Take as an awesome option to fit your need.

Cool Cell

SUPERCELL X THE GRIZZ • STRESS NEGATIVE BRED BY NEW WAVE GENETICS

We certainly have great respect and admiration for the Yorkshire breed but it is not one that we breed on a daily basis so we asked several Yorkshire breeders what they would be looking for in a Yorkshire boar to breed to their sows? The response was pretty consistent– get their pasterns up off the ground, moderate them so they don’t have to be 350 lbs to finish out, and get rid of their “jump” muscle. WELL - HERE YOU GO. To say we are very happy to have Cool Cell tucked away, settled in, and ready to roll would be a large understatement. He is moderate in his build, very wide and true front to rear, and boasts a very thick, expressive top that we think reads winning York showpigs. The traits that we think make him so unique for the Yorkshire breed are his expressive muscle shape, and that he has this shape without being too rigid or jumpy in his ham/loin junction. This guy also has an incredible appetite and has gotten better and better since we got him home! A very unique Yorkshire boar that we think can do many things to improve the next generation!
