welcome to the

Ladies and gentlemen, I am beyond excited to welcome you to one of the most cutting edge events that I have ever had the privilege of participating in! I use the term participant because as you begin turning the pages of this catalog, you will notice that some of the most successful and time tested programs in America have dug deep into their treasure chest, and opened up their farrowing houses and show barns, to bring to you some of the most exciting opportunities to ever be offered to the general public. Thus, I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to not only work with them, but consider many of them very close friends. So, many of you are asking how the crazy idea of having a showpig auction in Las Vegas came to fruition. Well, I felt like the idea of assembling a group of elite genetics, from trustworthy and service minded breeders that have achieved success at every level was certainly a bulletproof concept, but deserved to be highlighted in a venue like none other, and therefore, the largest and brightest of stages seemed like the perfect fit, LAS VEGAS! As you study your catalog, you will see a unique blend of foundation females, showpig prospects, herd sire prospects, and genetic clones that can inject profitability and success into any breeding program or show barn in America. The achievements, programs, and success stories highlighted in this catalog are far too many to count, and I’m certain there is something for everyone. Lastly, I extend the most sincere thank you to all of those who have been supportive in this endeavor and I encourage those of you that can not make the trip to Las Vegas, to register at www.cci.live, follow along with the sale, and buy with confidence via the internet bidding option. Respectfully,

Dave Mullins Dave Mullins

Crossbred Boar

DIRTY SECRET X BEST MAN X DEUCES X SUGAR DADDY

When you go out on the limb and tell the world that you’re going to

have a showpig auction in Las Vegas, you know that the pressure will be on to pull everything together, in order to have a world class event. Well folks, in order to have a world class event, you gotta have an eye opening lot to lead things off and set the tone, and HERE HE IS!!!! The folks at Lackey Livestock have brought to you, the lead boar from their program, the one they elected to keep, use, and make a feature in their very own operation!

Out of one of the most prolific and consistent sow lines, Venom has

been an outlier from birth, until now. A physical specimen, with a killer pedigree! Venom’s mother is a littermate to the Reserve Middle Hampshire at San Antonio Littermate to Venom’s mother

in 2018, his grandmother (42-11) is visually, Jason’s favorite sow at the farm and is also the mother of their $150,000 boar prospect that recently sold to Premium Blend Genetics!! Furthermore, his great grandmother is Dirty Secret's Aunt, and again, one that never misses. Jason describes VENOM as an elite individual with a dense skeleton, loose hind leg, and all the tools to become a household name for many years to come!

From the first time the Hofschulte crew laid eyes on the Power On 282-7 Olsen sow they knew she was something special. Not many Yorkshire females possess as much feature and structure as she does, yet does so in a beautiful package. The 14-5 Olsen sow has an impressive record when starting a conversation about Yorkshire herd sires. She is the mother of NCH Mega Man - the high selling York boar at ‘17 SWTC that stands at Shaffer’s, the Mother of NCH Uproar - the high selling York boar at ‘19 SWTC that stands at Premium Blend, the paternal grandmother of NCH Buckle Up - that stands at Hi Point, the grandmother of NCH Man of Steel - that stands at Sharrett’s, and the maternal grandmother of NCH Grindstone - that stands at Hofschulte Genetics. 14-5 is a once in a lifetime type of sow that they feel very grateful and fortunate to have had the opportunity to obtain from the Olsen herd. Her litter this fall sired by Struck a Nerve at Top Cut is the deepest litter she has produced to date. Struck a Nerve is the Watson boar sired by Novacain.

C

This brings a whole new genetic line to the table than she has been mated to before. These three boars being offered would be an outcross to all of the Amped Up sows out there. There are many things to bet on in Vegas, but the sure bet is in the prodigy of 14-5.

MASTERMIND GILT PICK Buyer picks from 11 litters sired by the record selling $210,000 Duroc boar Mastermind Litters will be farrowed at Tres Amigos from Dec. 1st through Jan. 18th.

I’ll be honest, I couldn’t believe the Amigos offered up this kind of opportunity! The guys at Tres Amigos said when they partnered with Upperhand Genetics and Doc Fischer to purchase Mastermind, the plan was to use him on as many females as they could get

semen on this Fall.... No question MASTERMIND was the most exciting Duroc sire they’ve seen to date and one that they feel complements

their sow herd base extremely well. The buyer of this lot will get to select their favorite gilt from ALL of the Tres Amigos Mastermind sired litters!! These mommas will include their very best sows including mothers of the 3rd Overall Barrow 2018 Indiana State Fair, the 4th Overall Duroc Gilt at the 2019 NJSS, 4th Overall Gilt at the 2017 Indiana State Fair, and full sib to the mother of the Grand Overall Gilt at the 2016 Indiana State Fair. We could go on for hours, but

At Tres, they believe that the most critical success factor in this industry are the females that make up a sow herd, and have invested heavily and focused on breeding decisions to continually improve the quality and consistency of their sow base. The Walks sow is a chance to grab a piece of that female foundation. She has generated consistent, highly sellable pigs that have competed and won at the highest levels. Some of those include the Champion Heavy Cross Gilt at the 2017 Indiana State Fair, the Champion Div 2 Cross at the Georgia National, and the popular high points Hamp barrow in Oklahoma.  WALKS is unique in terms of her extremely heavy duty build and extra bone combined with a pliable, sound skeleton.  We think Family Ties will be an ideal mating to bring additional look and muscle to this litter. Added value comes from the age of this litter which will be highly versatile in their show ring potential from early Spring Jackpots, the Expo, and can last through those August shows.  Here’s a chance to add an incredible female which can jumpstart a crossbred program with a litter inside that has profit potential for the new owner in just 60 days from now!

Not only is this sow the mother of Rockstar and No Smoke, the two littermate boars that have been wreaking havoc for Thomas Showpigs in Texas, but she has also produced the Grand barrow at the Kentucky State Fair in 2018 & 2019, Now or Never at Premium Blend Genetics, Foresight at Ottenwalter Showpigs, and is also the grandmother of the champion weanling male at Duncan, that sold to Top Cut Genetics! Most recently, a pair of baby gilts topped the $10,000 mark in an online sale, and with this mating, perhaps the best is yet to come! You’re buying the rights to a barrow, gilt, or 50% of a boar prospect from this historical female! Due Approximately December 1 // Service sire: Anchorman at Premium Blend Genetics

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS PICK FROM THE ENTIRE DECEMBER CROP OR ANY OPEN GILT

Well, this next outfit is no stranger to the backdrop and has been swinging for the fences out west! Git-R-Done Showpigs has come to town with another incredible opportunity to assemble a breeding piece or buckle grabbing show gilt, and they are leaving it up

to you to decide! You will have the opportunity to pick any gilt from the 2019 December crop, OR any open female that is on the farm

and has been held back as a replacement. Just has constant inquiries about selling elite females, and to this point he has been very reluctant

to let and of his foundation pieces go. Well, he said if he was going to participate on the biggest and brightest stage, he want to do something unique for his customers. Justin specified, that many of his most elite sows are bred for December litters, and you can be the first to open the barn doors!
