2020 Fall Boar Book


Thank you for your interest in Premium Blend Genetics. PBG is entering our 18th season and we are grateful to be able to do what we love. Now more than ever we greatly appreciate every purchase of semen, breed- ing stock, & showpig prospect as we know not only the significant financial investment involved but also the tremendous 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. 2020 has certainly been a challenging time and that has played out in the showpig arenas. We are very thankful for those who have stepped up to the challenges and worked to provide as many opportunities as possible for the kids to be able to exhibit their projects. The development of the alternative shows (state expositions, backyard/pasture shows and cyber shows) were very valuable in maintaining enthusiasm in the showpig community. Many of those new venues will hopefully continue into the future to provide even more opportunities than exhibitors have ever had. We are committed each year to purchase the most elite sires in the country to offer to our customers and we are extremely proud of the boars we have in our fall 2020 line-up. We think this set is incredibly deep with tremendous phenotypic and genetic diversity that we believe will cover an extremely wide range of females. The success of our semen & showpig customers with PBG genetics in the past 12 months has been beyond what we would have ever imagined. A highlight for us in 2020 was 6 PBG boars winning Premier Sire and 2 being named Reserve Premier Sire @ the Summer Type Conference this summer. We feel a tremendous responsibility to the breeders to do our very best to give their boars the greatest chance possible to make an impact in their respective breeds. It is extremely rewarding when that goal is achieved and we owe it all to our customers for believing in PBG genetics. Thank you for your continued support, let us know any way we can help & we wish you all the very best!

Hidden Secret x Bone Thug Bred by Weisinger Farms Stress: NEG 20/20 is one absolute creature!!! We have purchased several boars from Weisingers over the years that have generated and done great things for us - 20/20 sorts to the top – really quick! When Nate called us early this winter, he was as pumped about 20/20 as much as anything they had ever produced, and we agree 100%. We have a firm belief that 20/20 can prove to be one of the premier sires we have been able to offer! 20/20 offers a unique & proven blend of pedigree that offers tremendous predictability and excitement. Some of Weisinger's very best generating sows are found stacked on top of each other in his genetic makeup giving us further confidence in his ability to be a game-changing sire! In addition to his rich bloodlines, he is an absolute specimen to view!! 20/20 puts together so many positive traits that are very rare to be combined into one package. 20/20 offers true stoutness of feature with a masculine jawline, stout skull and drives at you busted open with a bold chest floor. As you get on top of him, he offers monster rib, immense spread and shape that he carries back to a big, square hip. As he tracks away, he exhibits supreme squareness as he plants and drives on one of the biggest hind legs we have seen and hits the ground on huge toes with very strong pasterns. We get tons of calls looking for an elite option to add growth and scale back into their Crossbred lines. 20/20 is our immediate reply! Boars that can add grow power and some frame and still be very proportionate are very hard to find and we are very pleased to be able to offer 20/20 as a perfect fit!

Skull & Bones x Cruel’s Mother Bred by Brockman Farms Stress: NEG BELIEVE IN ME! WOW---You must see this one in person to believe!! This young boar is one that we think has a chance to be a monster force in the Crossbred rings!!! Initially, our trip to Brockman's was focused on Next Intention, but upon seeing BELIEVE IN ME, we knew we were looking at another absolutely "must own" boar!! In addition to his elite phenotypic traits, his genetic makeup makes him even more enticing! Sired by Skull & Bones, the successful young Secret society son that was bred by Soileau and stands at The Stud, and out of the legendary sow best known as being Cruel Intention's mother, BELIEVE IN ME offers an incredible blend of bloodlines and phenotypic traits to make one incredible sire that we have extreme confidence in!! BELIEVE IN ME offers as much freakish look and build as any we have ever seen! He is so unique in his height of shoulder, elevation, and look through his front end. For a boar that offers these traits from the side, he overwhelms you as you study him coming and going, being busted open and bold with immense power and mass over the top side of his skeleton. When you get on top of him, Believe In Me blows you away with loads of mass and product working down his back. He is tremendously heavy boned, big footed, and stout from every angle. BELIEVE IN ME is another very special individual that we think has a chance to make elite barrows and gilts that win and WIN BIG!!!!

Square Deal x Visionary x Bear Bred by Steve Cobb & Family Stress: NEG

2020 Highlights: OYE Grand Champion Gilt Minnesota Youth Livestock Expo Grand Champion Gilt & 4th Overall Gilt National Jr. Show 4th Overall Barrow NJSA SE Regional Reserve Grand Barrow WV State Fair 3rd Overall & 5th Overall Market Hog California Youth Expo Reserve Champion Light Cross OYLE 6th Overall Gilt CHECKMATE reminds us a ton of VISIONARY in his look, structure, extension, showhog presence and attitude but what we believe makes him truly futuristic is how blown apart and square he is coming and going and his absolutely massive top and upper rib shape. We think CHECKMATE represents a sire who can win big and make them better and we think that makes him very valuable to the showpig world. Visionary was so successful and has had a tremendous impact due to his impeccable hip and athleticism that gives his off-spring the ability to perform in the showring and make an impact for future generations.. CHECKMATE produces elite and very deep litters of very highly marketable showpigs. If you need to add look, fix structure and still add muscle-shape, CHECKMATE can do that in spades!

GUNS UP is an absolute BEAST! GUNS UP is made much in the same mold and pattern as his great sire! The first thing that strikes you is his enormous legs. He is truly one of the heaviest boned boars we have ever seen. What makes him unique in that regard is that he remains clean in his joints and is very athletic in the way he can plant and drive of his rear legs. GUNS UP is square made and proportionate in his overall build when viewed from the side. He is boxy and short backed, yet still offers a great look from his blade forward and is very correct and flexible in his overall skeletal build and makeup. GUNS UP is fun to drive out on tours as many visitors comment that he has the power that shows in his photos but is bigger framed and more extended than they had anticipated. GUNS UP is a power hog that still fits together in a very complete package! GUNS UP offers all those extras in one dynamite package. Let’s ride!!

Lock It Up x Breaking Rules' mother (Distinct x Colt 45) Bred By: Knauth Showpigs Stress: CAR HALL PASS is one of the most eye-catching Crossbred Boars we have seen!!! We were thrilled to purchase a pair of boars from Knauth’s that we believe can take it to the next level!! HALL PASS hit us extremely hard and we knew that he was one that we absolutely had to own!! HALL PASS is one of our favorite boars of any breed that we have on stud!! The genetic makeup of HALL PASS offers as much predictability to make dominating show hogs as you can get, being sired by the living legend Lock It Up and out of the mother of the highly successful and popular Breaking Rules. The combination of phenotypic and genetic greatness made the purchase of HALL PASS a very easy decision!! HALL PASS is an absolute freak that is still awesome in his skeletal build, feet and legs, and offers extreme comfort level on the move. He offers as much unique look, extension and elevation as any boar we have ever owned. With that, he is enormous in his chest floor, bold in his rib and body shape with spread and power throughout!! He is loaded with shape and expression that is laid across his skeleton correctly, allowing him to maintain superior comfort and flexibility as he drives around the yard. We are frequently told by visitors that they really liked his picture but love him in person. We are not sure we have seen a boar that has this much look and comes at as wide chested with as much back-shape as HALL PASS. HALL PASS can make boars, barrows, and gilts that get it done on the very biggest stages. HALL PASS will take you anywhere you want to go!!!

Hidden Secret x Wild Will x Exclusives mom Bred By: Weisinger Farms Stress: NEG HIDE OUT is a tremendous young Hidden Secret son we purchased from Weisingers this summer that we believe has a chance to do big things!! After the tremendous popularity of 20/20, the Hidden Secret son we purchased from Weisinger this past spring, and the awesome reports we have been getting from lots of customers on his pigs, we knew HIDE OUT was one that we needed to purchase to form a dynamic duo of Hidden Secret sons standing here at Premium Blend!! HIDE OUT is a true power hog that reads stout and bold from all angles. He offers very impressive width and power as he comes and goes, while packing a tremendous amount of product and mass over the topside of his skeleton. He is attractive and extended, but still shows a stout skull and masculine jaw. He is a heavy boned, big footed boar that is great on his feet and legs! Not only is HIDE OUT sired by Hidden Secret, but his grandmother is Exclusive's mom, who was one of the most consistent generators of champion show hogs as any boar we have had! This gives us even more confidence in the potential that he brings to the table! HIDE OUT is one of those boars that is just so good everywhere, while still offering the "extras" it takes to win!!

We never dreamed we’d convince the crew at Wintex to sell us 71, but we are absolutely thrilled to have purchased him, making Premium Blend his new home! When Will dropped 71 out of his pen on the tour at WTX, we were incredibly impressed! He runs uphill yet is moderate in his length of body with extreme rib and body shape! He plants and drives on an enormous hind leg. What we were most impressed with is the extreme comfort and agility he still demonstrates as a mature boar carrying all this power and mass. He stamps his offspring with his extreme traits, yet consistently makes them very skeletally correct! We could go on for awhile describing his positive attributes, but his track record speaks for itself-he flat out gets it done!!

Dirty Secret x Bear 274 Bred by Steve Cobb & Family Stress: NEG

2020 Highlights: Indiana State Fair 5th Overall Div. 2 Gilt Iowa State Fair FFA Reserve Div 6. Cross Market Hog OYLE 5th Overall Div. 6 Cross Barrow HUSH MONEY is a tremendously impressive sire to see walk out into the viewing area. Backing that up is a very intriguing pedigree pairing of Dirty Secret with Bear 274 on the bottom side. Bear 274 has done a very impressive job at Cobb’s and adding this genetic potency to the mix, gives us extreme faith in HUSH MONEY and his ability to generate elite livestock! HUSH MONEY immediately strikes you as a BIG-TIME boar as he drives right at you with his enormous chest floor that he carries from the base of his chest, through his knee, to the ground! From the side, he offers a striking profile, being tall shouldered, level in his build, with a unique look through his head and neck! When HUSH MONEY drives away, he is equally as impressive offering tremendous base width, a big square hip, all while reaching forward and driving with supreme flex and range of motion! He is a truly three-dimensional hog that is SO stout from every angle you analyze him, while maintaining unreal showhog look and presence! Along with GUNS UP, HUSH MONEY is a boar that visitors often comment that he is much better in person as he brings much more look and extension than many read in the photo. Hush Money would rank as one of the most underrated boars we have in stud. He makes them elite!

Anchorman x Teen Spirit x Hot Route x Best Man’s sister Bred By: Wintex Farms Stress: NEG KINDA BIG DEAL is our fall 2019 off the farm weanling purchase from Wintex Farms that we were very excited to have join Stay Classy!! After purchasing STAY CLASSY at Perfect Timing, we made another trip to WTX and purchased two more ANCHORMAN sons, KINDA BIG DEAL and GROUND RULES. We think that this trio of ANCHORMAN sons has a chance to build on the incredible success of ANCHORMAN and take it to the next level!! There is no doubt that of all the ANCHORMAN sons we have in stud, Kinda Big Deal is the one who most closely resembles his sire in terms of the extreme bone, ruggedness, and density of skeleton while being bigger chested, more elevated, with a notch more look! KINDA BIG DEAL is bred identically (littermate sows) to Stay Classy. While similar in their skeletal build and construction, each boar offers their own extremes and “ests” that make them stand out! KINDA BIG DEAL is next level in his stoutness, density, and POWER! He is so rugged in his skeleton, heavy structured, and big legged. From the side, he offers balance, proportionality, and a great look! He drives at you opened-up and square, leaves you the same way, and plants and drives off a giant rear leg! KINDA BIG DEAL can make a change in a hurry!!

Dirty Love’N x Secret Society x Cookie Bred By: Lackey Livestock Stress: NEG LIFE SENTENCE is a very exciting late Spring '20 addition from Lackey Livestock!! We had heard from several people that Lackey had a very special DIRTY LOVE’N son at the farm they had already started using with lots of confidence. We have purchased several boars from the Lackey Livestock crew the last couple years, and there is no doubt, LIFE SENTENCE has as many extreme parts and pieces as any! LIFE SENTENCE is not only extremely impressive in his phenotype, but he offers a very interesting blend of pedigree packed with years of show ring success!! Sired by the very popular and successful DIRTY LOVE"N and back on a SECRET SOCIETY x Cookie sow makes for a very exciting genetic package! As stated above, LIFE SENTENCE offers some very extreme traits that will allow for advancement and winning big shows!! From a design standpoint, LIFE SENTENCE is level in his build, attractive in his look, and very proportionate in his overall construction! He is enormous in his chest floor width and maintains this spread from the base of his chest, through his knee to the ground. He is extreme in his muscle expression with a crisp turn to his loin edge. LIFE SENTENCE is blown apart as he drives away, offering extreme width and dimension while still maintaining squareness and flex out of his hip and hind leg. Early reports on pigs have been extremely good and we can't wait to see what LIFE SENTENCE can get done!!

Best Kept Secret x Deuces x Dirty Secret’s Aunt Bred By: Lackey Livestock Stress: NEG MAKAVELI is our $150,000 record-selling weanling purchase from Lackey Livestock at Perfect Timing! When Jason called us and said he was bringing what he felt was the best boar he had ever produced to Perfect Timing, we were definitely excited to see him and he did not disappoint! He offers so many traits that are hard to make in a package that is backed by years of showring success! We think MAK can make a huge impact!! MAKAVELI is massive and bold from every angle! He drives at you busted open with a monster chest and leaves with this same extreme power and mass. From the side, he offers a deadly silhouette, being very tall shouldered, short bodied, yet extended through his front 1/3. He offers a unique ability to be very moderate in length yet remaining proportionate in his build and design. We think MAKAVELLI is tailor made for those basic, fundamental gilts that just need more extras and "ests“ while adding some grow power and frame. First reports on his pigs have been tremendous and they are definitely some of our favorites we have on the ground. We think MAKAVELLI is the next man up in the long list of Lackey boars that have made a mark in the showpig world!

Sired by the dominating Anchorman, and out of Emily Myers' 2019 Indiana State Fair Reserve Grand Overall Gilt that we purchased from Tres Amigos as a weanling. MOHAWK is bred to be elite! On paper, we thought this was a per match and this litter confirmed what we were hoping! It was an exceptionally deep litter of hogs that sold well into very good homes, giving us even more confidence in what MOHAWK can do as a sire! MOHAWK instantly impresses with his ability to offer a very moderate skeleton, but still offering elite look and extension through his front 1/3. From his blade to his hip, he is very moderate and powerful, while transitioning to a long, level hip design. He comes at you so good, busted open and blown apart with genuine width and squareness. He is extremely crisp and descript in his muscle pattern yet does so while remaining flexible and very correct!! MOHAWK is heavy structured, very heavy boned and big footed, with awesome toe quality. It is very gratifying to have MOHAWK seeing hard use within several of the very best firms in the country!

2019 BREEDERS’ CHOICE MAN OF THE YEAR NEVER BEFORE have we seen one like this!! Truly an AMAZING animal that is built to leave a legacy! NEVER BEFORE is a Dirty Secret and is out of a Red 7 female that is a littermate to Red Alert.

NEVER BEFORE just makes them like him and fits most genetic and phenotypic options you want to go with him. Most impressive to us is that he has worked across numerous herds and absolutely stamps them with tremendous mass, look and structural correctness. NEVER BEFORE is absolutely on fire siring as many if not more winners than any boar we have had on stud. Most impressive to us is that he has worked across numerous herds and absolutely stamps them with tremendous mass, look and structural correctness..

Cruel Intention x House Money x Step One Bred By Brockman Farms and Billy & Jane Rash Stress: NEG NEXT INTENTION is one truly SPECIAL individual that we are thrilled to be able to offer our customers! With the incredible early success and popularity of Cruel, finding an elite son was definitely a high priority for us heading into the spring breeding season. When Brockman’s initially posted the picture of NEXT INTENTION, we knew he was the one we needed to own. When we first contacted them about the possibility of purchasing NEXT INTENTION, it was a non-starter due to the extreme use he was seeing within the Brockman herd, along with many others across the country. They did leave the door open for a potential future purchase and we headed south in early May. Within about two steps of NEXT INTENTION walking out of the barn, we all knew this was the type of elite individual that does not come along very often!! NEXT offers such a unique presence and build when viewed from the side, being tall shouldered, elevated and extended. He is stout in his skull, heavy boned, and dense in his skeleton. NEXT wows you as he drives right at you. He explodes out of the backside of his blade with true shape and a ditch running from his blade back to a big square hip. He exhibits tremendous turn to his upper rib and maintains great depth of body and flank. As he tracks away, he does so with a very comfortable hind leg that plants and drives with ease. NEXT combines so many extreme, far-reaching breeding pieces in a complete, fundamentally correct package. NEXT INTENTION is one of our favorite young boars we have ever had on stud---this one is absolutely nextlevel!

We are very pleased to have V4 in stud and available to offer Visionary’s same genetics to offer a wider breeding window!!! We are very pleased to have V4 added to the line-up to continue to be able to offer his genetics well into the future.

Bone Collector x Super Monster Bred by & Owned with Steve Cobb & Family Stress: NEG We continue to have very strong demand for VISIONARY semen with several elite firms continuing to use him to produce foundation females . He is doing great and looks as impressive as ever! His semen settles very well if used within a 3-4 day window. We do advise that you have a plan to use it within that timeframe. We are currently collecting Visionary on an every-other week type of schedule. Give us a call for the current schedule. 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 were 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 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. 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!

He immediately catches your attention as he drives right at you, high headed and showing off his broad chest floor! As you analyze him from the side profile, he is so unique in his ability to be moderate in his length and height to his frame, while still being proportionate and attractive through his front end. He has an impeccable hip design and is very athletic with tremendous reach! When we made this mating, we knew we were taking a big swing in hopes of making a boar that was built to make a difference - IT WORKED! WINGMAN has been extremely popular boar tours and is seeing heavy use in many of the elite sow herds in the country!! WINGMAN pushes every edge of the envelope but holds it all together and we are confident he can make a big change in a hurry . We think WINGMAN is pure and simply a BEAST!

Outside The Lines x Two Tone x Shotgun Wedding Bred By: Heimer Hampshires Stress: NEG EN: 347-1 Reg#159035001 Sometimes you get a boar that has zero interest in having his picture taken and GET IN LINE is one of those boars. GET IN LINE is as freaky-necked as any Berkshire we have seen and has tremendous value in the Berkshire breed. This unique Berkshire boar is a son of Outside The Lines that we think has a chance to make a huge impact on the Berkshire breed!! Genetically, GET IN LINE is as good as it gets. He is a full sib to the 2019 American Royal Reserve Grand Overall Breeds Barrow, 2019 Duncan Fall Classic Grand Berk Gilt, and is a littermate to the 2019 ANLS Champion Berkshire Barrow! Sired by the dominant Outside The Lines and out of a Two-Tone sow that Jesse considers the best Berkshire sow currently working in the HH herd! If you get a chance to see GET IN LINE’s mother, it is immediately evident why he possesses the extreme unique traits that are on full display!! THE DIFFERENT ONE!! GET IN LINE has some unique pieces that make him one of the most far-reaching Berkshire boars we have seen. He offers freakish extension and look through his head and neck. From the side profile, he demonstrates incredible balance and design being tall shouldered, level in his build with a hip and hind leg that is second to none! The looseness of skeleton and athleticism that GET IN LINE brings to the table is so unique and the ability to flex and drive off a very comfortable hind leg will prove to be a crucial component going forward. As with any Outside The Lines off-spring, the stoutness, bone and mass that has become synonymous with OTL is apparent, all adding up to GET IN LINE being the total package!!

Glass House x Ultra x Back Home x Drinking Class's sister Bred By: Mauck Show Hogs Stress: NEG EN:7-4 Reg #163067004 This is MY HOUSE!! Wow-what a tremendous Berkshire boar!! We had been hearing about a pair of Berk boars at Mauck's that were perhaps the best ones they had ever bred!! Everyone who is familiar with the type of dominating success the Mauck's have had in both the show ring, as well as with the generating ability the Berkshire boars they have bred have demonstrated, will know this is a BOLD statement, but we truly believe MY HOUSE has a chance to be that special kind of sire!! Sired by the late, great Glass House, who just sired the 2020 Team Purebred Junior National Grand Overall Breeds Gilt! MY HOUSE is also a littermate to Vade Dishman's gilt that has been highly successful all summer! MY HOUSE is an absolute stud that we think is one of the very best boars of any breed we have added in a long time! The best way we can describe MY HOUSE is that we think he looks like a modern-day Shotgun Wedding, with way more power and mass!! MY HOUSE is a Berkshire boar that is built to be bred to lots of different types and kinds. He offers lots of extremes and "ests" and does so with a skeletal build that is so complete and fault free. On the profile, he is the epitome of balance and build! MY HOUSE is a moderate boar that is still very proportionate in his frame and scale and offers extension and elevation. He is big and bold in his chest floor and maintains this spread through his center body and spring to his upper rib. When you get on top of him, he is packed full of product with a big square back. As he drives away, he does so with an absolutely ideal hip/hind leg that can motor and go for as long as you could ever want. Monster, Massive boar with Shotgun Wedding’s hip and hind leg design. That is a lethal combination!

FULL-SIB TO GLASS HOUSE!!! SHOT GLASS is one truly impressive Berkshire boar. When we found out that in addition to the great Glass House son we now call MY HOUSE, that Mauck's also had a full brother to Glass House at the farm, we were even more excited for the trip and were thrilled to get them both purchased and home with us to Premium Blend! In addition to Glass House, SHOT GLASS is also a full sib to the 2019 Indiana State Fair Third Overall Breeds (Champion Berkshire) Barrow and the 2019 Indiana State Fair 5th Overall Berkshire Gilt! SHOT GLASS is a very unique Berkshire boar that offers true breeding hog potential to be a dominating sire of Berkshire boars, barrows and gilts! Take a shot with SHOT GLASS!! SHOT GLASS offers some freakish traits that make him a Berkshire boar that is built to make a big change!! He offers an unreal look through his head and neck and elevation at the point of his shoulder. He is so impressive in the width and power he offers with a very descript, expressive muscle pattern over the topside of his skeleton. As he motors around the yard, he demonstrates the ability to plant and drives with extreme flexibility and range of motion. We believe SHOT GLASS has the ability to build on the legacy started by his full sib (Glass House) and make a name for himself as an elite Berkshire sire of champions that can compete for the "OVERALL" titles!

Playing By The Rules x Got 'Em (Change Of Pace's Dam) Bred by Korb Farms Stress: NEG EN:24-5 Reg#155422005 PAY TO PLAY is one extremely special Landrace boar. When we first got the video of this guy, it was immediately obvious that he was one of the best ones we had ever seen and was one that we absolutely had to have. As with every Korb boar, PAY TO PLAY was built and bred with a vision, and absolutely represents the type of boar that is made when that type of plan comes to fruition!! We think PAY TO PLAY can be a dominant force within the breed!! PAY TO PLAY puts everything you would ever want in a Landrace boar in one awesome package. He reads with a very stout, masculine skull and jawline. He is a very structured hog that is massive in his bone and foot size.

He is as confident in PAY TO PLAY as any we have ever discussed with him. PAY TO PLAY is the total package and is a great fit with Change Of Pace to cover lots of Landrace females!

He is so impressive in the rib and body shape he brings to the table, while still offering a good look through his head and neck.

Black Mamba x Midnight Rider (2019 Expo Champion Open Gilt) Bred by Cook Family Livestock Stress: NEG EN:5-2 Reg#52231002

LIITERMATE TO NATIONAL JUNIOR SHOW 3rd OVERALL POLAND GILT On our trip to Cook Family Livestock, we were initially totally focused on the Hampshire boar we had been hearing about, but when they drove this one out of the barn, he became a priority. Sired by the record selling Poland boar Black Mamba, and out of the 2019 The Exposition Grand Open Show Poland Gilt. BLACK MARKET is out of a very deep, high quality litter with a littermate sister that was the 2020 Team Purebred National Jr Show Third Overall Poland Gilt, as well as another gilt that was very successful in the jackpots this summer. BLACK MARKET is a Poland boar that is unique from a design and build standpoint. He is extremely elevated and extended, while still being stout skulled, and rugged in his skeleton. He offers very good body shape and spread, and gives a great look as he drives away, planting on a square, loose hind leg. Most importantly, the angles to his skeleton, toe quality, and overall structural correctness is what truly sets him apart and makes him a valuable Poland sire moving forward!!

Black Mamba x Fear This Bred By: Premium Blend Genetics Stress: TBD EN:19-11 Reg#52628011

LITTERMATE TO THE 2020 NATIONAL JUNIOR SHOW CHAMPION POLAND GILT OUT BACK is a very exciting Poland boar that we bred here at Premium Blend that is out of an incredible litter!! OUT BACK is a littermate to Piper Unger's 2020 Team Purebred Jr National Champion Poland Gilt! Sired by the $65,000 record selling BLACK MAMBA and out of a Fear This x Purple Rain sow who won her class at Expo a couple years ago. HIs grandmother is our foundation Purple Rain sow that is responsible for most of our recent wins in the Poland rings. He is bred as deep in elite Poland genetics as we have utilized here which gives us even more confidence in his generating ability!!! OUT BACK was the most impressive Poland weanling pig that we have ever raised. From the start, OUT BACK has exhibited incredible build, look, and design, while still being extremely heavy boned, stout and rugged! He is similar to Black Mamba in terms of power and stoutness, yet does this in a notch bigger outlined, longer bodied package. We view OUT BACK as a very good option for those Poland females that need to be stoutened up with incredible bone and heaviness of structure, without sacrificing look and design! We think he's got a chance to be a very special Poland sire!

Black Mamba x Blue Light Bred by Siedentop Showpigs Stress: NEG EN:5-3 Reg#52850003 PITCH BLACK is our purchase from 2020 STC in Des Moines where he was the $22,000 Grand Champion and Top Selling Poland Boar! We did not head into the week looking for another Poland boar, but when one like Pitch Black surfaces, it becomes the right time very quickly! As soon as PITCH BLACK came into the ring, there was no doubt he was one we needed to own! Black Mamba has been on a dominant start to his siring career and a top priority for us this summer was to find a boar that would work well back on his daughters. We didn’t think it would be a Mamba son – but we are confident PITCH BLACK will be a perfect fit. PITCH BLACK is a Poland boar that gives you that hard to find combination of stoutness, coupled with awesome design, presence, and build. He has BLACK MAMBAs power, density, and mass with more look, elevation and muscle expression. He tracks true and square coming and going with a hind leg that functions with an extremely high level of comfort! He is extreme in the power he shows out of the back side of his blade that works all the way across the topside of his skeleton. PITCH BLACK is great at the foundation of his skeleton with big feet and square, evenly spaced toes! Pretty simple here-we think PITCH BLACK is very special! We have been very fortunate to house some Poland boars that have made an impact on the breed and we truly believe PITCH BLACK has a chance to rank with the very best of them!

LITTERMATE TO DENVER CHAMPION SPOT & OYE 3RD OVERALL SPOT GILT CROSSOVER is our $50,000 Spot boar purchase from Belton! No question, CROSSOVER is one of those boars that leaves a lasting impression! As soon we saw him in Belton, we knew he was one that had a chance to do some damage in the Spotted breed!! Sired by Lampoon and back on one of the most dominant sows of any breed, the genetic package CROSSOVER brings to the table backs up the extreme phenotypic traits he offers!! He comes out of an outstanding litter that also included the Champion Spot Barrow at Denver and the OYE 3rd Overall Spot gilt!! His mother has also raised the 2019 Grand Overall Purebred gilt as well as the 2019 Oklahoma State Fair Champion Spot gilt. CROSSOVER is a boar that offers that desirable balance between power and mass, with the look, design, and build to go with it! He is a monster in his width of chest, back shape and dimension up high. He has a big, square hip, that transitions down to a rump that is packed full of product! CROSSOVER is very impressive from a distance but when you get on top of him it gets very fun.

Up In Smoke x Loud Mouth

Bred By: CKL SPOTS Owned with: Down Family, Mays, Behrman, Yates & Smith, and M&N Showpigs Stress : NEG EN: 54-1 Reg#168767001

2020 Highlights: STC Premier Sire Indiana State Fair 3rd Overall Spot Gilt Illinois Junior Livestock Classic 5th Overall Breeds Gilt (Champion Spot) We added Hollywood Blvd. late in the fall of 2019 as we had been hearing about him for several months and were looking for an elite Spot to add to the line-up. HOLLYWOOD BLVD. was bred by CKL Spots, a firm known for making Spotted stock that are changers within the breed! HOLLYWOOD BLVD. was shown at 2019 SWTC in Belton where he was the 2nd Top-Selling Spot boar. Talking with Bobby Listen, HOLLYWOOD BLVD. had gotten sick before Belton and had lost a lot of his bloom leading up to the show. A great set of spot breeders teamed up to purchase him to turn loose on their sow herds! From the videos only weeks following Belton, it was obvious that Hollywood Blvd. had gone home and turned into a BEAST! We believe HOLLYWOOD BLVD. is an outlier in the breed in his elevation, look, and extension he offers from his blade forward. He is big and square in his chest floor with tremendous spread and power up high! He is an extremely heavy boned, big footed boar with big even toes. The complete package. Breed him to your best with absolute confidence!

Dream Weaver x Supposedly Bred by Rash Showpigs Stress: CAR EN:10-1 Reg#172442001 NIGHTMARE is an outright freak in terms of bone and overall mass! Not only is he impressive to look at but he has the elite, proven genetics to back it up! He is sired by Dream Weaver and out of the Jacobson Supposedly-sired gilt that was Reserve Spot at the 2018 WPX Jr National! Great females stand behind the boars that we incorporate into the stud and NIGHTMARE certainly checks that box! NIGHTMARE is the definition of stout and burly everywhere you study him! He is rugged and dense with big, big legs! As massive and stout as he is, NIGHTMARE still offers an attractive design, being level in his topline, proportionate and offering ideal frame and scale. Enormous in his back-shape and rib and built in the ideal frame size to make killer barrows. He plants and drives with ease off a very comfortable hind leg!!

Big Step x Capital Gain x Untouchable Bred by Stohlquist Showpigs Stress: NEG EN: 2-2 Reg#6361400002

LITTERMATE TO NATIONAL JUNIOR SHOW 4TH OVERALL BREEDS BARROW We entered 2020 with building an elite Yorkshire line-up as a primary goal and we could not be more excited about the Yorkshire sires we have been able to assemble and offer to our customers! BIG TICKET is a prime reason for that excitement. A Yorkshire boar that is unlike any other we have seen! BIG TICKET’s photo certainly captures what an impressive creature he is. However, when you see him in person, it is just jaw-dropping. We can assure that if Ryan walked BIG TICKET into any Yorkshire ring, it would get very quiet – very quick, just like it happens on tours! A purebred Yorkshire boar that is built to take on any Crossbred you want to bring at him! We loved the Stohlquist gilt that was the 2019 NJSS 4th Overall Yorkshire. We told Ryan then that we wanted a boar that was built just like her. When we checked in with him this spring, he told us that he thought he had one that was as special as they had ever raised and he was out of the dam of that gilt! Sired by the very popular Big Step, and out of a Capital Gain x Untouchable sow that also raised the 2019 Reserve Grand Overall Breeds (Champion York) Barrow, the 2019 NJSS 4th Overall Yorkshire gilt, and Domino. BIG TICKET is just a monster in every aspect. If you like your Yorkshires to look like white exotics by maxing out muscle, rib, body, bone, tons of shape and a killer look, BIG TICKET can flat get it done! A Yorkshire boar that offers superior genetic and phenotypic greatness- he is the BIG TICKET to making winning barrows, boars, and gilts!! Having a boar like BIG TICKET makes it very fun to walk into the boar barn!

85


Pride x Hoge Bred by Steve Cobb & Family Stress: NEG EN: 315-7 Reg#616905007 We believe BINGO is an absolute outlier in terms of pedigree and phenotype for the Yorkshire breed! We saw BINGO on a spring trip to Cobb’s in 2019 and thought he offered so many positives where the Yorkshire breed was looking for solutions. He was off-limits at that time but we remained in contact for the following months. We were able to reach agreement on him and are very pleased to have him in stud at Premium Blend. We believe BINGO has the following traits where he offers a very positive impact to the breed: - Short-backed boxy design that will allow his off-spring to be show-ready at the correct weight range. - Tremendous pastern strength with huge feet and monster toes - Extremely tall fronted with a very extended head and neck. - Ideal in his ham – loin transition. We have firm belief in BINGO to be an elite sire of Yorkshire, Southwest Yorkshire, and even blues/crosses.

Big Step x News Flash x Wow x Daddy Mack Bred By: Rodibaugh Genetic Team Stress: NEG EN:1-3 Reg#635902001

LITTERMATE TO JASPER ($300,000 STC CHAMPION) & JUMP (@ PBG), INDIANA STATE FAIR CHAMPION BARROW & CLASS-WINNING BARROW jACK is an elite Yorkshire boar that we purchased from Rodibaugh Genetic team off the farm the week after STC!! Talking with Steve and hearing the conviction he had about the quality of the littermate boars to JASPER, we knew we had to make the trip right away and were pumped to load both JACK & JUMP to join their brother here at Premium Blend!! While we know that JACK will start out being known as a littermate to JASPER, farm visitors agree, JACK is way more than just the "littermate". This is another extremely elite individual out of one of premier Yorkshire litters produced! We had seen the trio of littermate Yorkshire boars (JASPER, JACK, JUMP) at Rodibaugh's on an early summer trip and thought they were killer good. We are pumped up to now own all three littermate boars and we feel they have a tremendous chance to leave a long-lasting impact on the Yorkshire breed!! JACK & Jasper are made in a nearly identical mold. JACK is the slightly bigger-framed of the pair. Jasper has certainly lived up to his hype and has been extremely popular so when visitors comment on tours that they have JACK ranked right with his brother – that gets us very excited. The best testament we believe we can give on JACK is that the Rodibaughs suggested the name to honor the patriarch of the family - the legendary Jack Rodibaugh!!

Big Step x News Flash x Wow x Daddy Mack Bred By: Rodibaugh Genetic Team Stress: NEG EN: 1-1 Reg#635902001

$300,000 STC CHAMPION LITTERMATE TO JACK & JUMP (both in stud @ PBG) & INDIANA STATE FAIR CHAMPION BARROW & CLASS-WINNING BARROW When a great one hits the ring at a big-league show, you can feel the excitement in the barn! When it all comes together, it is the pinnacle of what every breeder dreams of! That happened when JASPER drove out at the Summer Type Conference. We had no plans of purchasing a Yorkshire boar in Des Moines as we were beyond thrilled with the set we had put together. We had seen the trio of Big Step littermates at Rodibaugh’s early in the summer and thought they were killer. When JASPER hit the ring, you knew it was Game Over and we knew we could not leave Des Moines without owning JASPER! We feel JASPER is the pinnacle of putting together the ultimate combination of balance and structural correctness and adding all the “stuff’ you would ever want to put in one. We felt JASPER was the perfect final piece to our Yorkshire class. If you are in the business of breeding Yorkshire showpigs, we would be proud to show you what we have to offer. As powerful a set of boars in one breed that we have ever put together!

GREAT FIRM – GREAT LITTER – GREAT BOAR!!!

LITTERMATE TO JASPER ($300,000 STC CHAMPION) & JUMP (@ PBG), INDIANA STATE FAIR CHAMPION BARROW & CLASS-WINNING BARROW JUMP! Like we stated in the description of JACK, JUMP will also start out being known as a littermate to JASPER, but he is a Yorkshire boar that offers a ton of quality in his own right!! When we first saw this trio at Steve Rodibaugh's early this summer, we knew we were looking at a special group of littermate boars that had a chance to make extreme progress within the Yorkshire breed. JUMP is the moderate framed, barrow-oriented boar of the trio. He reads like a boar that will work extremely well on bigger outlined, longer bodied Yorkshire females. JUMP is opened-up and offers true power and skeletal width. JUMP is attractive in his makeup and is so correct on his feet and legs which should give his offspring the running gear necessary to last the long drives to the top at the big shows!! Being a littermate to JASPER, JACK, the Champion Yorkshire Barrow & a Class-winning barrow at the Indiana State Fair Jr Show, JUMP is a builds as much confidence as you can have about the consistency of the genetics in the trio of Rodibaugh boars. JUMP Is a very impressive Yorkshire boar and adds to the depth and quality of our 2020 Yorkshire class!

Stay True x Big Motor x Dress To Kill x Skull's mom Bred By: Norman Farms Stress: NEG EN: 12-5 Reg#637735005 We had heard rumblings of a great one at Norman's and when the guys at Norman Farms drove this one out of the barn, it didn't take long to realize we were looking at one very powerful Yorkshire boar! RIDE OR DIE is one of those boars that just doesn't come along very often, and when they do, you do whatever it takes to get them bought!! In addition to his incredible phenotype, RIDE OR DIE offers an exceptional blend of genetics, resulting in the ultimate Yorkshire sire!! This one gets us pumped up!!! RIDE OR DIE takes stoutness and power to a whole new level, yet does so in a flexible, complete, very wellbalanced package. RIDE OR DIE gives a killer first impression, being huge chested, stout skulled, and busted open in his chest! He is an incredibly heavy boned, big footed boar that is exceptional in his front feet and toe quality. Being so extreme, he is still a boar that is very impressive in the balanced look and build he offers as you study him from the side. The spring to his upper rib and depth of body is awesome and he offers immense product and shape down his back. He drives away just as impressive being wide and powerful, with a square hind leg that can flat out-reach and go. We love our Yorkshire line-up as we feel it has an elite option however you need to go. RIDE OR DIE offers a tremendous choice for bigger-framed, basic females that need to add power and bring them to the ideal showpig scale. Take a big swing with RIDE OR DIE!! He can take you to the next level of Yorkshire hogs!

(Big Step x Capital Gain x Amped Up's mom) Bred By: Stohlquist Showpigs Stress: NEG EN:18-8 Reg: 637447008

STEP ASIDE is another very impressive Yorkshire boar purchase that we made on our visit to Stohlquist Showpigs early this summer! As we were looking through all the boars on feed, STEP ASIDE really left an impression on us. He was a young boar that was so impressive in his build and design. STEP ASIDE is a boar that is bred to be a generator, lining up several generations of Yorkshires that have won at a high level, while also breeding on and making productive change within the breed. That genetic excellence is on full display when viewing this boar!! STEP ASIDE is a boar that can be used on a wide variety of types and kinds, and we believe he has a chance to be an extremely successful sire of champions! What first struck us while looking at STEP ASIDE was the absolute comfort he exhibited as he drove up and down the aisle. The design to his hip, and function of his hind leg is so impressive, as he can reach forward and drive with authority around the yard. STEP ASIDE is an extremely stout, heavy boned, big footed boar that remains very strong on his front feet. He is very attractive through he head/neck and is balanced and very proportionate from the side profile. STEP ASIDE is really bold and opened up in center portion of his body cavity and maintains this spread and dimension throughout. STEP ASIDE is a boar that is so flexible and pliable. He can motor all day and never miss a step. It is extremely impressive to see him in motion to study his design and function. When its time to make them better - STEP ASIDE!!

Struck A Nerve x Power On 272-7 (Uproar’s Dam) Bred By: Hofschulte Genetics EN:38-1 Reg:634580001

SHOWCASE is a stud of a Yorkshire boar that we purchased as a choice lot from the Hofschulte's in the "Vegas Showcase" this past winter. With the extreme popularity and early reports on the Uproar pigs, we knew we had to go back to the well for another son out of that same sow! Out of a very deep litter of pigs, SHOWCASE is a truly impressive Yorkshire boar that offers lots of good in one package. We think he has a great shot to make an impact!! SHOWCASE is a boar that is very attractive, offering a killer look and build. He is tall fronted, elevated, and extended. He is big chested and square, and maintains this overall squareness of build throughout, being very expressive and stout in his muscle pattern. For a Yorkshire boar that is this attractive and good looking, he still offers genuine power and mass, coming and going with great width! He tracks on a square hind leg with an excellent running gear that should allow his offspring to last the long drives to the top! SHOWCASE is a Yorkshire boar we love for impressive visual traits, coupled with the type of predictability in his pedigree make him a must a tremendous option to make them sound, tall shouldered and superextended!
