FALL 2018 BOAR BOOK


Thank you for taking a look at our Fall 2018 Boar Book. We appreciate every purchase of semen, breeding stock, & showpig prospects as we know the significant financial investment involved but also the commitment of time that is put into each project. We understand that every order we send out is the start of a dream and we do our very best to do our part to make that dream come true. It has been a very exciting past 12 months for Premium Blend Genetics and for our family. On the family side of things, our daughter Morgan was married to Adam Jarman in December on Regina & I’s anniversary; oldest son Jacob married Elizabeth Billman in a “Surprise� Wedding that I was honored to officiate in May; and middle son Nolan is now engaged to Kari Carter for an April 2019 wedding. On the Premium Blend side it has also been an extremely exciting time. Customer success in the showring has continued at an awesome rate; we are beyond thrilled with the 34 new sires we have added in 2018; and we are ecstatic to have settled into our new boar facility. Boar health, boar comfort and staff efficiency were the driving factors in the design of the new barn and we could not be more pleased with how it has turned out. We are extremely grateful to our customers for having faith in our sires and putting them in their best females; to the exhibitors of PBG-sired projects for doing the hard work it takes to present them at their very best; and to all of our boar suppliers over the years who have trusted us to care for and get their sires used on elite females. It takes all 3 of those working together to make it all work and we greatly appreciate it!!! We will continue to work to earn your business by providing the most elite genetics possible and by treating each customer a little better than we would expect to be treated. We feel without a doubt we have the best set of proven and new sires across all breeds that we have ever been able to offer to our customers and we look forward to many more years working to make your showpig dreams become a reality. Thank You Ted, Regina, Nolan, Mitchell, Jacob & Elizabeth Laird; Adam & Morgan Jarman & Garrett Cole

Never before

$750 List/ $500 Overrun /$300 Last Call

*NEW*

Dirty Secret x Red 7 Bred by Bobell Farms Stress: Negative

NEVER BEFORE have we seen one like this!! Truly an AMAZING animal that is built to leave a legacy! Never Before and his littermate, Classified were our $170,000 private auction purchases from Bobell Farms. This pair of boars is sired by Dirty Secret and are out of a Red 7 female that is a littermate to Red Alert. We saw the videos of these boars and immediately knew we needed to head over and see them as soon as possible. After viewing them, we got back in the truck and agreed that we were going to do whatever it took to bring them to PBG. We believe that NEVER BEFORE has the opportunity to be an absolute LEGEND in the showpig industry! NEVER BEFORE is simply a stand out creature from every angle. He combines extreme traits NEVER BEFORE thought possible and does so in a correct, functional package. It is hard to imagine a boar that can be this extreme in his ability to be incredibly heavy boned, big footed, and stout, while still being so elevated, attractive and unreal in his overall skeletal build and design. He offers awesome spread and back shape when you get on top of him and carries this mass from the top of his hip down low through his stifle. He puts it all together to the highest degree! We could go on for a long time about this boar, but to keep it simple-we think NEVER BEFORE is the best boar we have ever purchased and cannot wait to watch for his impact! NEVER BEFORE have we owned one like this!

Curtain call

$500 List/$300 Overrun/$200 Last Call

Best Man x Visionary

Bred by Brinning Genetics Stress: Negative Curtain Call!! One of the truly INCREDIBLE boars we have EVER seen! While watching the Perfect Timing preview this past fall, Shane Brinning had an extremely unique Best Man x Visionary barrow that we thought was very intriguing. We immediately followed Shane back to his pen to see if there were any littermate boars. Shane told us there was one that he thought was very special, but he wasn’t sure if he would sell him. After 3 months of calls/texts we were finally able to lock up the purchase of Curtain Call that Shane calls “By far the most amazing creature I have ever bred”. Quite a statement from a firm with the amount of success as the Brinnings, but we think those that see him will agree. It’s nearly impossible to adequately describe this boar without seeing him in person! Curtain Call is one unique beast that we are thrilled to own!! LEGENDARY PEDIGREE – INCREDIBLE BOAR!!! Curtain Call is as elevated and extended as any we have seen, while still maintaining proper angulation and cushion to his shoulder blade, down through his forearm. He is blown way open as he drives right at you and maintains this squareness from the top of his blade, down through his chest, and knee to ground. Curtain Call is unreal in the turn to his loin edge and shape and spread up high! He is bold and robust through the center portion of his body and carries this type of power and mass all the way through. As he tracks away he demonstrates a big, square hip, with loads of muscle from the top of his hip, down through his stifle. He plants and drives with comfort and ease on one of the biggest hind legs of any we have ever seen. We could go on for a long time about Curtain Call. Both Best Man and Visionary have proven to be true LEGENDS, and now we believe its Curtain Call’s turn to be one of the all time greats!

SECRET SOCIETY

$500 List/$300 Overrun/$200 Last Call

Dirty Secret x Full Strut x Springsteen Bred by Lackey Livestock Stress: Negative Secret Society!!! With the amount of early success that Dirty Secret was having, we made it a priority to contact the crew at Lackey Livestock about a son they had on feed. We had talked to Jason early and he believed he had one that was a very special boar, and from that moment we knew we needed to plan a trip to see this boar. It was an awesome trip to Haskell, TX to Lackey Livestock and it resulted in the purchase of what we believe to be a “GAME CHANGING’ boar, Secret Society! We feel he is one of the truly elite boars we have ever been able to purchase and offer to our customers! Simply put, this one is absolutely next level in what we feel he can accomplish in the years to come! Secret Society is one that is absolutely timeless in is build and construction. He is a GREAT ONE today, and he will be a great one regardless of year or trend. His skeleton is put together so well and everything fits and works to make one truly elite individual! He is huge legged and heavy boned, Secret Society reads so stout from every angle! Very loose, flexible and correct in his structure-he has a hind leg that plants and drives to perfection. It is hard to adequately describe one that does so many things right and does them to such a very high level. We definitely invite you to come see Secret Society for yourself! One of the best ones we have ever seen!!

Classified

*NEW*

Dirty Secret x Red 7 Bred by Bobell Farms Stress: Negative

Classified is one awesome Crossbred boar that we think can leave his own tremendous mark on the showpig world. A special boar out of a special litter!!! Classified and his littermate, Never Before were our $170,000 private auction purchase from Bobell Farms. This pair of boars is sired by Dirty Secret and are out of a Red 7 female that is a littermate to Red Alert. We saw the videos of these boars and immediately knew we needed to head over and see them as soon as possible. We knew after viewing this pair that they were must own boars and are absolutely thrilled to have them in stud at Premium Blend! Classified is extremely stout from every angle! Stout skulled, big backed and huge in his rib and body shape. He drives at you bold, with great spread and width from blade to ground. From the side, he offers incredible balance and look with ideal length of body and frame size. As Classified tracks away, he is very impressive with elite width and power, while staying genuine and square to the ground. Very heavy boned, big footed, and powerful everywhere you analyze him. Classified offers an elite look and build that we believe will translate to dominant showring success!

Money Moves

$400 List/ $200 Overrun /$150 Last Call

*NEW*

House Money x Visionary Bred by Weisinger Farms Stress: Negative

Money Moves is our tremendous off the farm purchase from Weisinger Farms! We have purchased several elite level boars from them over the years, but Money Moves quickly rises to the top. We had the opportunity to see Money Moves as a weanling on a trip through Weisinger’s and could not wait to head back later that summer to see how he progressed! Needless to say, he exceeded our expectations and we believe Money Moves has matured into a true headliner type of crossbred boar! Money Moves is sired by the successful House Money and his dam is a Visionary female that was the 2015 Indiana State Fair Jr Show Reserve Division 3 Crossbred Gilt! This Visionary sow has turned into one of Weisnger’s “go to” females and is a sow that is a consistent generator of extremely high quality pigs for them! Money Moves littermate gilt was Hoge’s 2018 WPX 5th Overall Division 2 Gilt! Visually, Money Moves is one incredible specimen! He is so unique in his build and design, offering incredible elevation and look, while bringing unreal stoutness and mass to the table! He is as opened up and square as one can be while still remaining very sound, flexible, and correct. Money Moves is a very heavy boned, big footed boar that reads with tremendous stoutness at every angle. We have firm belief that Money Moves is set to be a force that will generate champions on the big stage!! BIG LEAGUE BOAR!!!

Visionary

$400 List/$200 Overrun/$150 Last Call Bone Collector x Super Monster

Bred by & Owned with Steve Cobb & Family Stress: Negative One of the most frequent questions we receive is how is Visionary doing? Visionary semen looks great, is holding very well and conception rates are tremendous. Visionary is the Bone Collector x Super Monster son of the $500,000 3/4 interest pair of boars purchased from Steve Cobb & Family. When he walked out of the Cobb's boar barn the first thing that hit us was his tree-trunk back legs that truly look fake. Then you see his hip which is the longest and best hip and makes him one of the most athletic boars we have seen out of Collector or Thug. Then you see his barrel rib and absolutely massive flank. Then the real topper is one of the most uniquely-powerful but extended head/necks you can imagine. There is not a whole lot left to say about what Visionary has accomplished to date and we think he is as relevant today as he was the day we purchased him. This was proven last summer / fall by his major wins of Grand Overall Barrow Minnesota State Fair, Grand Overall Gilt American Royal, Grand Crossbred Gilt NJSA Eastern Regional, Grand Overall Gilt Tulsa State Fair, Grand Overall Gilt North Carolina State Fair, Reserve Commercial Gilt Iowa FFA, Grand 4H Barrow Nebraska State Fair, Grand Crossbred Gilt NJSA NBS, $26,500 Top-selling Reserve Grand Gilt WPX. Even more impressive to us is the job his daughters are doing in the crate. The number of elite showpigs having Visionary on the bottom side is truly impressive and reports of their mothering ability have been tremendous!!!

Undisputed

$400 List/$200 Overrun/$150 Last Call

Monster Square x Visionary Bred by & Owned with Steve Cobb & Family Stress Negative Undisputed is our Monster Square x Visionary x Bear purchase from Cobbs. We loved Undisputed when we purchased him on the spring of 2017 and he has certainly delivered!!! Aaron’s description of Undisputed - “ Undisputed is as good as any we have ever put together - Period. I’m sticking to the answer to the question of what to breed him to with: The best one you have in heat. I’ve never thought the term “Freak of Nature” should be applied to a truly great one. Yet, it’s hard to know how else to explain UNDISPUTED except that he’s Freakishly Balanced with still all the extras to produce dominating show stock! Best advice I have for folks serious about making good ones is to - GO SEE UNDISPUTED” Undisputed is off to a great start with his first babies hitting the big rings. So far he has sired the San Antonio Champion Lightweight Cross Barrow, Supreme Overall Gilt @ Western Bonanza, SWTC $7250 Top-selling & Champion Cross Gilt, OYE Champion Division 2 Gilt (7th Overall) & placed 4 Gilts in the OYE sale - more than any other sire!!! Undisputed’s second crop has been lights out and was highlighted by the Supreme Overall Gilt California State Fair, WPX 4th Div 3 Gilt, 3 WPX Class-winners & 4 2nd place gilts. Undisputed also produced the 3rd Overall (Champion Hamp) @ Belt Buckle Bonanza. Most impressive has been the tremendous number of Jackpot and County Fair wins that Undisputed off-spring have grabbed. His winners page is extremely impressive and we think he is just getting started!!!

Secret agent

$400 List/ $200 Overrun /$150 Last Call

Dirty Secret x Full Strut x Black Onyx Bred by Lettow Showpigs Stress: Negative Our trip to Lettow Showpigs this Spring was one we were definitely anticipating and had very high expectations for. The Lettow firm has become synonymous with building elite showpigs that are impeccable in their skeletal build and design, and their ability to do this while piling on all the EXTRAS has been very impressive. Nick and Tye had been in contact with us about a Dirty Secret son that they thought was very special. They believed this boar was a supreme representation of what they try to do at Lettow Showpigs and felt he was one that they thought could make a special impact. We are absolutely thrilled to bring Secret Agent home to Premium Blend. This boar is built in the mold of the elite Dirty Secret offspring we have seen, but also offers some extremes in terms of his freakish look and extension through his head and neck, with loads of fresh back shape and a deep groove running from the backside of his blade to his hip. He is cracked open at the base of his chest and maintains this power through his center cavity! He is really impressive in the curvature to his rib and body shape. As he comes and goes, he does so with tremendous squareness, flexibility, and range of motion. He’s got it all! Our confidence in this boar is strengthened even more by the fact that he is backed by an absolutely incredible sow line at Lettow Showpigs that has been responsible for some of their biggest wins over the last several years in the barrow rings! Whenever you find a boar with elite phenotype backed by generations of highly successful and predictable sow families, it usually results in a sire that has a profound impact making champions at all levels of competition! We have incredible faith in Secret Agent to be that type of sire! This one is SPECIAL!!

Prototype

$300 List/ $150 Overrun /$100 Last Call

Hurricane x Visionary Bred by Weisinger Farms Stress: Negative Prototype is one that has so many extreme traits in a structurally correct, athletic package. Big and bold in the spread through his chest floor, offering expressive, ripped muscle down his back with an incredibly crisp turn to his loin edge. He offers great spring to his upper rib and carries this down low into a deep, full flank. His neck ties up high into his blade with a great look through his head, while still maintaining a stout skull. As he goes away he overwhelms with incredible width and dimension, all while staying square and flexible with the ability to plant and drive with great range of motion. Prototype has made a name for himself for producing large, high-quality litters of very sellable prospects. His babies were very popular this spring and that has been followed by a tremendous summer in the ring. Prototype’s 1st crop included the WPX 3rd Overall Barrow (Champion Div 1); 5th Overall Div 2 Barrow, WPX Class 5 winning barrow and numerous Jackpot & County Fair Grand, Reserve & Top 5 individuals.

Silver lining

$300/ $150 Overrun /$100 Last Call

Distinct x Visionary Dam is the 2015 Indiana State Fair Grand Overall Gilt Bred by Decker Showpigs Stress: Negative Silver Lining has matured into one of the best boars standing @ PBG and has been EXTREMELY popular with visitors. Silver Lining is sired by Distinct and out of a Visionary female that was the 2015 Indiana State Fair Grand Overall Gilt! His dam is a direct daughter of the famous “Mouse” sow that has proven to be a dominating force in the showring the last couple of years. Silver Lining is one stout boar! Extremely heavy boned and big footed! The turn to his upper rib shape is awesome and this depth carries down through his flank. Silver Lining is moderate in his overall package, yet still remains very tall at the point of his shoulder, runs uphill and displays great “show hog” look! Tremendous boar backed by incredible consistency on both sides of his pedigree. We are very excited to see what SILVER LINING can accomplish! Silver Lining is off to a great start placing gilts @ 6th & 13th Overall @ OYE and siring several high-selling weanlings this spring! Silver Lining has had a tremendous run this summer including the 4th Overall & $4400 2nd Top-selling Gilt Ohio State Fair, WPX Class 3 Winning Barrow & numerous Grand, Reserve, & Top 5 Overalls at Jackpots & County Fairs.

Stones

$300 List/ $150 Overrun /$100 Last Call

Lock It Up x Sting Ray x Best Man Bred by Brinning Genetics Stress: Negative

Initially, our trip to Brinning’s was completely focused on finding a way to convince Shane to sell us Curtain Call. However, while walking back through the barn, we noticed an awesome younger boar in the pen next to him. Seeing STONES for the first time, we were blown away and we immediately knew we had to find a way to bring him to PBG as well!! Stones is one that reads like a big time barrow sire! He is square and proportionate in his build and balance! He is opened up and square coming and going with really good shape and mass up high! Stones is very rugged and stout in his feature. For a boar that has this much stoutness and mass, he still presents a really trendy look and design from the side. He has a great running gear and can get out and go with great range of motion. Sired by the very successful Lock It Up and out of a Stingray x Best Man sow that was 5th Overall at Georgia National last year! Additionally, that Best Man granddam is a littermate to the great Wedding Crasher boar at Brinning’s! Stones has a pedigree that is stacked with years of barrow dominance, strengthening our confidence in him to be an elite level sire!!

Dirty Secret x Sky’s The Limit x Miss Abby Bred by Heimer Hampshires Stress: Negative With the tremendous success of Dirty Secret, we knew we wanted to add elite sons to offer to our customers and we targeted one of the guys that knew him best! Jesse and the crew at Heimer Hampshires have been on a dominating run in recent months, and the success he has experienced with Dirty Secret offspring has been very impressive to watch. We knew we needed to prioritize finding an ELITE Dirty Secret at HH, and can say with confidence that we purchased 2 incredible littermate sons – DARK SECRET and CONFIDENTIAL. Their pedigree reads Dirty Secret x Sky’s The Limit x Mountain Man x Swagger (Miss Abby). An amazing pair of boars backed by years of predictability in their pedigree, we have tremendous faith that these boars will make a lasting impact. The crew at HH have loads of confidence in the generating ability of these boars and we greatly appreciate the opportunity to bring them to PBG! Dark Secret is one incredible boar! He offers the unique combination of an elite level look, design and presence with unreal mass and shape. Dark Secret is elevated at the point of his shoulder and offers great balance and proportions when viewed from the side. He is heavy boned, big footed, and very stout featured. Busted open and blown apart in his chest and maintains this spread through his center body. When set in motion, he is very athletic and flexible, allowing him to plant and drive with great freedom and range of motion! As he drives away, he is square and presents a big square hip with lots of shape that carries down through his stifle! Dark Secret reads as a very versatile sire that can make dominating barrows, boars, and gilts.

Dirty Secret x Sky’s The Limit x Miss Abby Bred by Heimer Hampshires Stress: Negative With the tremendous success of Dirty Secret, we knew we wanted to add elite sons to offer to our customers and we targeted one of the guys that knew him best! Jesse and the crew at Heimer Hampshires have been on a dominating run in recent months, and the success he has experienced with Dirty Secret offspring has been very impressive to watch. We knew we needed to prioritize finding an ELITE Dirty Secret at HH, and can say with confidence that we purchased 2 incredible littermate sons – DARK SECRET and CONFIDENTIAL.

An amazing pair of boars backed by years of predictability in their pedigree, we have tremendous faith that these boars will make a lasting impact. The crew at HH have loads of confidence in the generating ability of these boars and we greatly appreciate the opportunity to bring them to PBG! Confidential is a freak of nature in his stoutness, bulk, and feature. Opened up as he drives right at you with a big, square chest! He is big and bold in his forearm and foot, with huge legs. He is tremendous in the spring to his rib and depth of body. He is short backed, but remains long and level out of his hip with a great hind leg! Confidential is very expressive in his shape up high with a ditch running from the back side of his blade to his big, square hip. Confidential is one we think has a ton of value on those bigger outlined, more feminine females that need added mass and overall power, while maintaining the look and build necessary to win at the highest levels!

Kiss the ring

$250 List/$125 Overrun/$85 Last Call

Kiss My Socks x Ante Up x Swagger Bred by Heimer Hampshires Stress: Negative While we were viewing the Dirty Secret sons on our trip to HH this Spring, Jesse showed us a Kiss My Socks son that he felt was as good as any KMS they had produced. We fell in love with KISS THE RING from the moment we saw him. His unique build and patented KMS presence coupled with impressive power, shape and overall mass made him one of those boars that immediately become a “MUST OWN” type of hog. Jesse indicated he had already seen extensive use at HH and they were prepared to put a lot of faith in him as a sire going forward in their program. It took some serious negotiation, but we were able to convince Jesse that this Kiss My Socks x Ante Up x Swagger boar needed to join the pair of Dirty Secret sons at Premium Blend. Kiss The Ring is very unique in his overall build and construction. Most of the time when you get a boar that offers this type of look and design, they don’t combine it with this mass and spread on the topside of their skeleton. He is round and robust in his rib and body, with a big square back that offers great expression and shape. He is very heavy boned, big footed, and heavy structured. While KISS THE RING does offer some extremes in his extension and elevation, he still reads with a masculine skull and is very stout in his feature. We have very high hopes for KISS THE RING and believe he will prove to be an elite level sire on a wide variety of sows!

We knew right then that he was a boar we needed to own and were absolutely pumped to get him bought! It took $52,000 as a weanling, but after watching him develop into the beast he is now, that was a very wise investment! Since his purchase in November, we have had a staggering amount of interest in him and are thrilled to offer a boar of this caliber to our customers! He has been truly impressive through every stage of his development and we believe he has the chance to be a very special sire! Straight Jacket is an absolute freak in terms of back shape and muscle expression. He is incredible in his look, build, and overall design. This boar is very impressive in his rib and body shape with great spread and mass up high. STRAIGHT JACKET comes at you as good as any we have housed being blown apart, exhibiting perfect squareness from his blade, knee to ground, with a unique heads up attitude.

Crazy Eyes is another of our exciting purchases we made from Weisinger Farms this summer. Crazy Eyes comes from a deep litter, being a littermate to the 2018 WPX Third Overall Division 1 Cross Gilt! Crazy Eyes offers a unique pedigree relative to our existing crossbred sires. He is extreme in the extension and look he offers from the profile, being ultra tall shouldered and elevated through his front 1/3. Crazy Eyes is extremely impressive in his muscle shape and expression with a crisp turn to his loin an a big, square back! For a boar of this build and look, he still comes and goes wide and opened up with impressive turn to his upper rib and good depth of body. We think Crazy Eyes is made to fit those softer made, soggy middle sows that need more look, extension and muscle shape! Crazy Eyes is a really unique boar out of a great litter that offers an alternative pedigree to our current crossbred lineup!

When set in motion, he is very fluid and takes a long, comfortable stride off of both ends. Head & Shoulders is a boar that can make extreme changes while still siring hogs that are very comfortable and correct in their build and construction, which should allow his pigs to consistently rise to the top!
