Big Gulp

Bar None x Walk The Dog (2011 Houston Champ Gilt) Bred by & Owned with Jones & Bennett Berkshires Stress Negative EN 7-11 Reg #115392011

When we introduced Superman

"We believed we were now being handed the best Berkshire we had ever seen – period – no debate – no question – not a close second" Superman has obviously done his part to back that claim up and we LOVED Superman as he got the ball rolling for us. But when we were handed his full brother Big Gulp and his son SuperFly, we said we thought we just moved to a whole new level. They backed that claim up big time this fall/winter. Big Gulp is massive boned and massive chested and reaches out and just grabs the ground like his big brother but does it with a freakier front end that explodes out of his blade. Big Gulp’s littermates went 1st & 5th in gilts & 6th in barrows & San Antonio in 2013. We are grateful to the Jones and Bennett Families for letting Big Gulp come to PBG to keep the Berskshire stable full of great options.

Big Gulp’s first set has produced very well including the Champion & Reserve Overall Gilt @ Team Purebred MidSouth. Champion Berkshire Barrow OK Southwest District and 3rd Place gilt @ OYE.

Heat Stroke

Different Strokes x Hattie (All You Want) Bred By PBG Stress Negative EN18-3 Reg# 113329003

Heat Stroke was a February boar we did not do justice to in the hustle to get the stud started. We did him

a disservice by not showing him at the open house but those that saw him later loved him and used him on some really good females. The most massive Berkshire we offer with a tail set and set to his rear two that is ideal AND it is all wrapped up in a perfectly marked jet-black package. As we have discussed elsewhere, most of the boars in stud have some great females behind them and he has our best 2 Berkshire sows directly behind him on the bottom side – Hattie – Grand Gilt 2010 InSF & Miss Hathaway the 2008 Team Purebred Foundation Female who is the basis for everything in our Berkshire program. We have been very pleased to hear great reports on Heat Stroke babies in the SW this summer & fall including the $2500 Reserve & 4th Place Weanling gilts @ Duncan. These gilts were Heat Stroke on SuperFly’s littermate sister who stood 2nd @ San Angelo.

Shotgun Wedding

Kentucky Lovin’ x Dead Or Alive x What Else's Littermate Bred by Mauck Showhogs Stress Negative   EN 23-2   Reg# 118957002

Kentucky Lovin’ x Dead or Alive x What Else's littermate sister from our Mauck bred gilt purchase. Just a mid-February, the

bone this one has already is incredible and as you can see from the video he absolutely floats around the yard. May have the best set to his pasterns we have on any boar of any breed. That draws you in and THEN HE TURNS AND WALKS AWAY - and that is when the Oh My #$^**^&%^ comments start. JUST MASSIVE BONED & MONSTER WIDE with his tail head jacked way up in the air and he just walks and walks and walks. Extension, bone & style wrapped together in an ultra-sound package. Seems like many are looking for that Berkshire boar to add height at the point of the shoulder and a cool / extended front end and we think we  have found one that can do that very well. We added TNT recently from Harlan Reid for those same attributes and are thrilled to have him here to join Shotgun Wedding.  Both will get a great shot on our best. If we were asked to draw up what we would want a Berkshire boar to look like - we can absolutely honestly say this is it. Like we have heard over and over on our $35,000 Poland—Perfect Storm — our non-Berkshire breeding visitors tell us they might go buy one just to breed to him. This guy is just flat out a blast to walk in the yard and admire. We believe the Mauck’s have once again created a Berkshire masterpiece and we are thrilled to have him our gallery of Berkshire sires. First reports on Shotguns are coming in VERY positive with many of the top-selling prospects on-line including Brandon Davis’ $6100 2nd Top-selling gilt on-line, Mauck’s 5 Littermate males that averaged $3300 inlcuding the top-selling barrow on-line @ $4200 as well as our $3200 gilt.

SuperFly

Superman x (Gary x Miss Hathaway) Bred by & Owned with Jones & Bennett Berkshir Stress Negative EN 22-1 Reg# 115393001

SuperFly is the result of legendary genetics thru the mating of Superman (Bar None x Walk The Dog -2011 Houston Champ

gilt) on a Gary x Miss Hathaway gilt we sold to Jones & Bennett. So when you have Bar None, Walk the Dog, Gary & Miss H as the grandparents this is what you would expect and it looks like it is proving to be a lethal concoction. Superfly’s littermate gilts went 1-2 & Reserve @ San Angelo. The mother of Superfly was a littermate to the gilt we sold to Adam Beck and produced their record $7800 weanling gilt , $5100 gilt & $21K litter and that gilt & litter would be full-sibs to Superfly as they were sired by Superman as well. Thar litter produced the gilt that went on to win Champion Gilt @ 2013 WPX & Champion $7750 Open Gilt @ 2013 STC. If you like them stout and square and massive and clean-necked and sound and produced from legendary Berkshire greatness - we think we have a very good option for you to consider. We are very grateful to the Jones & Bennett firm for continuing to entrust great Berkshire genetics in our care. Reports on Superfly babies came fast and loud and those reports proved out as SuperFly started with a bang with the $10,000 Champion Berkshire Male @ the Major League Sale in Texas. He then romped thru the South - Southwest with Champion Barrow Houston, Champion Barrow San Antonio; Reserve Grand Overall Gilt TP Southwest; Reserve Grand Overall Barrow T.P. Southwest; 5th Overall Gilt TP Mid-South; 2 Class-winning gilts @ San Antonio; Champion & $7000 Gilt @ San Angelo Open; Champion Gilt San Angelo Jr Show; Reserve ($7500) Gilt & 8th Overall Berkshire Gilt OYE; Champion Barrow OK SW District ;2 class-winning gilts @ San Antonio; 2-2nd place barrows, 6th, & 8th place barrows @ San Antonio. His popularity has continued this spring with several high-sellers on-line including Knauth’s $5700 2nd top selling gilt on-line.

So Fly

SuperFly x Walk The Dog (Houston Grand- Superman’s Dam) Bred by & Owned with Jones & Bennett Berkshires Stress: Neg EN: 6-3 Reg#: 120804003

PBG is proud to introduce So Fly - SuperFly x Walk The Dog (Superman’s dam - 2011 Houston

Champ) son from Jones & Bennett Berkshires. So Fly combines the best of all of Superman, SuperBad, SuperFly & Big Gulp. Massively wide like all Supermans but what makes him very unique is the extension and look that he brings. So Fly is the TOTAL PACKAGE putting together the best of many of his ancestors as we have seen. It has been very fun to see how good things have gotten as we have lined up Superman genetics. Predictability out of this line is growing with each generation.

PBG is proud to introduce Too Fly - SuperFly x Walk The Dog (Superman’s dam - 2011 Hous-

ton Champ) son from Jones & Bennett Berkshires. . Too Fly is the boar most like his Grandfather Superman as far as being as wide as you would ever want to make one but the best part is he has the best hip laid in him of any Superman son we have seen. Monster topped, monster ribbed, blown way open and can go & go & go. It has been very fun to see how good things have gotten as we have lined up Superman genetics. Predictability out of this line is growing with each generation. 30 DAY GUARANTEE SETTLE All semen purchased @ In-Season Full List Price will be guarantee settle IF reported within 30 days of semen ship date.

SuperBad

Superman x Kimberly (Different Strokes) Bred by PBG Stress Negative   EN 3-8    Reg#118673008

Without a doubt the best Berkshire we have bred and having Shotgun Wedding and SuperBad come along in the same summer to add our existing line-up makes us feel very good about what we can offer in the Berkshire breed,. Superbad is Superman & Different Strokes power combined with the What Else hip & rear pastern set coming thru his Grandma Anne.  

SuperBad is Superman x Kimberly ( Different Strokes x Anne (What Else x Hattie (Miss Hathaway x All You Want))) which lines up the best Berkshire female we bred for 3 straight generations and it all starts with the queen of our Berkshire herd - Miss Hathaway. SuperBad has Superman, Bar-None, Walk The Dog,  Different Strokes, What Else, & All You Want as the sires in his 1st 3 generations.  On the female side he has the 2011 Houston Champion Gilt as his paternal grandmother and Hattie (Grand Gilt Indiana) as his maternal great-grandmother. Bottom line - genetically he has Berkshire greatness bred in. So now we will talk about SuperBad himself. The best hip and hind leg set we have seen in a Superman son and the most enormous blade and top we have ever put in one, maybe of any breed.  The set to his rear pasterns are absolutely ideal AND he has super-clean but extremely powerful head & neck. Lots of great Berkshire boars available - we think SuperBad has a shot to be an absolute legend. Some very stout reports on Superbad babies with a few we know that are feeding boars they really like for the summer / fall.

AC/DC x Kindergarden Cop Bred by Schmaling Bros Berkshires Purchased from & Owned with Harlan Reid Stress Negative EN 3-4 Reg# 11089004

W e were searching for the Berkshire boar to get the front ends up and add extension to go back on the powerful Berkshire females that have been rolling out the

last few years. The 1st class of gilts @ WPX was won by Boland’s gilt we thought was way good in those areas. She went on to win 4th Overall Berkshire @ WPX Then we saw her littermate barrow that ended up being 3rd Overall @ WPX and we got real interested in their sire TNT. The gilt then came back a few weeks later to win Champion Berkshire & 3rd Overall @ Team Purebred and sold privately for $8500. So we approached Mr. Harlan Reid at Springfield about the possibility of working something out on TNT and were able to come to an agreement to bring him to Premium Blend. TNT continued his great summer with Sheets’ Reserve Barrow @ InSF 4-H. Champion Berkshire Gilt, Missouri State Fair Open, Champion Berkshire Barrow Missouri State Fair Open, Reserve Champion Berkshire Gilt Missouri State Fair 4H,Champion Berkshire Gilt Missouri State Fair 4H, & Champion AOB Gilt Kansas State Fair. We think TNT on the power gilts that have been laid in the Berkshire breed the last couple of years could be an explosive combination. Between TNT & Shotgun Wedding we feel very comfortable that we have some excellent options for our customers. First litters on the ground here had 2 gilts selling for $4766 $4700 & $2800 as well as Brattains very good set that was topped by a $4100 GIlt

Torge

Time Bandit X Head of the Class Bred by Keim’s Stress Negative EN 3-5 Reg# 103447005

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 his 2011 crop 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! The buyers list of Torge semen is a who’s who of the Berkshire breed as they recognize the very unique things Torge offers. We think Torge offers another very good option on Superman daughters. Shelbi Gordon exhibited an OYE Class-winning gilt bred by the Gordon’s with Superman on a Torge daughter and confirmed what we thought that mating could produce. Torge continues his impressive run with the Top Selling Gilt @ the WPX Opens Show bred by Kent Brattain & Family. He also produced the 2013 IJSC Champion Berk & 2nd Overall Points barrow—Shown by Jester & bred by Larry White / Nathan Day. If you need to put a correct hip and hind leg and an up-headed but and moderate package—we believe Torge has done that as well as any in our opinion.

Shiftin’ Gears

Changing Lanes x Classic Steel Bred by Mench Showpigs EN - 10-1 Reg # 145165001

PBG is very proud to introduce Shiftin’ Gears our Changing Lanes son - Private Treaty purchase from Mench breeders of Changing Lanes. We think we have filled our Chester slot with an awesome son of the Chester sire that has been lighting it up: Grand Overall Barrow Arizona National, Champion Gilt American Royal, Champion & Reserve Chester @ NAILE, Champion Mature Chester Gilt @ Duncan. Switching Gears is Changing Lanes on littermate sister to the dam of the NAILE Champion. Tom sent out a notice letting some studs know that he thought he had a really good one and 1st guy in that wants him gets him. We we feel very fortunate that Garrett lives very close to the Mench’s as we were able to get the deal done before anyone else got to see him. We are certain he would have been snatched up as he is one of the very best Chester boars we have seen. Very extended and cool with plenty of power in a SOUND package that REACHES and GRABS on his rear 2. Shiftin’ Gears has grown into a very impressive mature boar. We have great faith in him and think he can make an awesome impact in the Chester breed.

Wise Guy

Royal Flush x God’s Gift Bred by JJ Genetics EN 32-5   Reg# 343264005

impact in the Duroc breed.

One of our prime objectives tlast summer was to bring a GREAT Duroc to PBG.  We had heard reports and saw videos of lots of really good red ones heading to WPX and the show did not disappoint in our opinion and WISE GUY was one of the key reasons we thought the show was stout.  It took $30,000 to get it done  but we were thrilled to be able to load WISE GUY onto the trailer and bring him home.  We think he has all the tools to have a major

WISE GUY draws you in with his powerful but extended head and neck and how he explodes into a massive rib and ripped top and stifle in a very sound and functional package. Then he turns to come at you and he absolutely blows you away with an incredible chest floor that runs perfectly true all the way to the ground with toes dead square at every corner. Simply put, we think he combines power, style and correctness that few have done and makes him an extremely unique breeding piece to produce winning showstock that will have the longevity to improve the Duroc breed for several generations.    Time seems to have a way of  sorting the pretenders from the contenders - we are very confident WISE GUY will prove to be a very WISE investment from the legendary herd of GUY Jackson. Early reports and pictures are very consistently positive on WISE GUY babies. HUGE ribbed, blown way open, structurally correct, dark-dark red & awesome ear set.

Bugatti

MM2 Bren x Problem Solver Bred by Rick May EN 2-2   Reg# 347260002

Bugatti is our $20,000 Top-Selling Duroc purchase from Rick May at the 2013 NSR STC. As good a red boar to make barrows as we can imagine. Busted way open front to rear. Dead square all four corners. Beautifully extended yet powerful head and neck. That first look is always a key one and the first look you get when Bugatti comes rolling at you is incredibly impressive. We feel Brian Anderson described Bugatti very well in his summary of the STC Duroc sale in the Seedstock Edge where he said: “This guy had a presence like no other, was super square & look liked a barrow-show winner needs to look, If your goal is to make a red one that can win hog shows, then you better take a serious look… This one had a style and class all his own.” We agree.  Combines power and freak in a very cool red package. Bugatti has become a beast since he has been home and has a huge full flank to match his awesome base width and look. With Wise Guy & Bugatti in stud we think we have a Duroc to cover your red females however you need to go.

BB King

Ya Know x Drop Shot Bred by W-D Swine STRESS CARRIER

We have always admired the WD Swine program and have been looking for the right “WATJE

BLUE” boar to come to PBG. We think we have found that boar in B.B. KING! Not only does he bring the trademark look, design, and balance that the W-D firm is known for—but he has added mass, bone, and power that we think sets him apart!!!! The ultra-attractive blue color scheme is out in full force in this guy making him a unique sire that we highly recommend! Seems like everybody wants at least one “Blue” boar in stud. We didn’t just want any “blue” we wanted a GREAT “blue” boar and we think we found him- B.B .KING – the king of the “BLUES”! We have had our 1st babies out of BB King and they look way stout, way freaky headed and DEEP blue colored. Reports from customers like the Nott’s (pictured) have seen similar results. May be real fun on him if you are looking for a stout blue option.

Bone Chill

Bone Collector x Legacy x Major Feat Bred by Lawyer Showpigs Stress Negative Purchased from Chris Postier

Massive everywhere with his daddy's style and design.

Most loved Bone Collector as far as his massive bone, design and up-headed style but some wondered about rib and body. Bone Collector buried that concern about 5 miles deep this winter and nobody will ever worry about Bone Chill in those areas. Truly MASSIVE everywhere you look. Thrilled to get this son in stud and rolling. Bone Chill's mother raised the Solomon gilt that was Reserve Cross and 3rd Overall @ the 2011 InSF and is consistently one of the top producers for the Lawyer's. Visitors have frequently commented that the picture of Chill does not do him justice and that he ranks in the very top group of boars they have seen this fall. The softest most massive of our Bone Collector trio with the same impeccable structure and style. Bone Chill babies have been a mix of belted & blues and is siring towards a black / chrome boar. Most importantly they are STOUT & WIDE & GOOD - probably throwing the most bone of any boar we offer. Bone Chill has been an a very good run this winter with Class-winning boar @ the NSR WTC, Reserve Heavy Barrow @ Georgia National, Class-winning & 6th Place Hamp Barrows @ Houston & putting 2 gilts in the San Angelo STARS gilt sale.

Bone Collector and Superman got us off to a flying start with Premium Blend Ge-

netics When we saw the video of Bone on Facebook we felt we had to try to own him as we thought he could help lots of crossbred females make better showpigs by getting their feet and legs back where they needed to be and to jack their front ends up at the point that their shoulder is the highest point on their skeleton. Bone Collector is massive boned but always STRUTS around the farm with his head up. We hoped he would stamp that look and he certainly has , as the BONE COLLECTOR STRUT is becoming a trademark of his offspring. Add to his “look” the soundness, flexibility, height at the point of the shoulder and extension in his neck. Add to that he is a HILLBILLY BONE 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. We know there are some really good options for Hillbilly Bone sons out there and we offer Bone Collector as a proven choice that can get it done from coast-to-coast. Bone Collector continues his great success in his third crop as he has added the Champion Lightweight Other Cross as well as a 6th place barrow @ Houston, San Angelo Champion Lightweight Gilt, Reserve Middle-weight Gilt & put a third gilt in the STARS sale. Grand Overall Barrow Dixie National (700 head shown) 2nd place Dark Cross & Sale Barrow (Top 1) @ OYE. That adds to his highlights from his 1st 2 seasons Grand Barrow Kansas State Fair, Grand Barrow Virginia State Fair, Res Grand Barrow Roswell NM State Fair, Res Hvy Barrow American Royal, Class-winning Barrow NAILE, Class-Winning Barrow NBS, Iowa State 4-H Fair Grand Champion Commercial Gilt. That builds on his Spring his 1st crop wins of Fab 5 Top 50 gilts @ OYE - being the only sire to put 2 gilts in the top 10 and tied for the most gilts in the OYE TOP 50 sale with 5, Ft Worth Class Winning Barrow, Houston Class Winning Barrow, Georgia National 4th Overall Barrow (Division Champ) LSU - Class Winning Barrow. Ohio State Fair Grand & Reserve MQP (Premium Sale) Barrows, Class-winning Gilts InSF 4-H. He has proven his versatility in siring winners across the country as he has Grand Overalls reported so far in Alabama, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Oklahoma, Michigan, MIssisippi, New Mexico, South Dakota, & Texas. Bone Collector is off to a great start in his 4th crop with several high selling prospects including Ottenwalter’s $8000 Gilt & Weisinger’s $3700 Gilt & Cobb’s $3000 Barrow Customers rave about his babies from day 1 and they don’t stop raving about them. His ability to not just sire 1 or 2 salable pigs but 8 to 10 very valuable pigs per litter is what has customers coming back over and over. We have truly had incredible reports on almost any combo you can imagine. Having his son Bone Chill & and our new son Bone Yard as well as his rewcently added grandsons Thug Luv & Ghetto Cowboy (Bone Thug x No Fare) has us extremely excited about what the future holds.

Bone Thug x No Fare x Daytripper (Grimm Yorkshire) Bred by Goss Showpigs Purchased from Goss & Gustafson Farms Stress: Negative

PBG is very proud to introduce GHETTO COWBOY- Bone Thug

x No Fare bred by Goss Livestock & purchased from Goss & Gustafson Farms. We had been talking to the Goss Family about the pair of Bone Thug sons they had out of littermate No Fare sows. When we lost Thug we knew we had to get this pair snapped up and we are thrilled we did. Thug has been on an incredible run including the Champion Dark Cross Barrow @ Houston as well as a 2nd place Other Cross & 3rd place Hamp barrow. He also produced a class-winning Hamp barrow @ OYE, & the $18,500 top-selling on-line prospect in the country this spring, as part of Stohlquist $61,000 litter. However, it is an absolute blessing to be able to tell our customers we have an incredible option that is staggeringly like Thug. Nearly an identical twin of his dad with a slightly more extended hip and neck. If he sires as strongly as he resembles Thug, it is going to stay real fun.

Thug Luv

Bone Thug x No Fare x Daytripper (Grimm Yorkshire) Bred by Goss Livestock Stress: Negative

PBG is very proud to introduce THUG LUV- Bone Thug x No Fare son purchased from Goss

Showpigs. We had been talking to the Goss Family about the pair of Bone Thug sons they had out of littermate No Fare sows. When we lost Thug we knew we had to get this pair snapped up and we are thrilled we did. We think Thug Luv combines the best of Bone Thug & No Fare and has a strong resemblance to his maternal grand-sire - No Fare. Add more top shape, more bone, & more extension to Bone Thug and that is where we see Thug LUV. For those wanting to use Thug but were afraid to use him on the ultra-moderate power gilts , we think Thug Luv is the perfect option. We hated losing Thug but we are certainly thrilled to be able to offer this pair of Thug sons that we are extremely confident can pick up where Thug left off.

Franchise

Creature 205 x Supermonster Creature x Bear x Supermonster x Vintage X Supermonster x Vintage x Space Monkey Bred by & Owned with Steve Cobb & Family Stress Negative

We have had several moments that we will remember for a long,long-

time in the short 2 years we have been running the stud. One of those will certainly be the night Jake walked in and told me he just got a text from Aaron Cobb saying they had a boar they wondered if we might wnat to partner on. I asked the breeding and he said Creature x Bear x Supermnnster on a Supermonster Vintage sow. THEN HE SHOWED ME THE PICTURE OF THE DAM. Needless to say we were WAY in. We were able to work out a deal with the Cobbs and now are able to offer our customers a genetic package that can be found only one place in a non-auction format - P B G!!! We agree with many customers who have commented they don’t even need to see a picture of the boar, the pedigree and the picture of the sow is enough to know FRANCHISE better be in serious consideration for your breeding list. BUT we have the pleasure of getting to see the boar and he is one of the most impressively built hogs we have seen. His structure is impeccable, he has the classic Supermonster look to his front end, and he is loaded with soft pliable msccle, has monster back feet with pasterns way up off the ground.

If you are walking behind a barrow that looks like FRANCHISE, you are going to have some fun!!! 22

Bone Yard

Bone Collector x Midnight Smoke

(Dam is littermatte to Walks On Water @ HiPoint) Bred by Darrell Messner Family Stress TBD (Carrier at most)

We discovered Bone Collector via Facebook so it only seems right

that we find a son via that same route. Middle son Nolan was on vacation but was also getting a little pig searching done via the phone. When he saw the video the Messner’s had posted of Bone Yard , he called me right away to tell me I needed to take a look. What I saw blew me away, the most monster legged boar I had seen that had incredible BEAR CLAWS for feet, was as flexible as a Romanian gymnast, and had that classic Bone Colector up-headed Tennessee Walking-horse gait. I called Garrett & Jake in to take a look to make sure I wasn’t missing something and they both quickly said - buy him now!!!. About 10 minutes later he was headed to Premium Blend. We love the pictuers we were able to get butWATCH THE VIDEO is all we can ask. As unique a creature as we have seen roll across the screen & the yard.

Smoke Show

Monster Stick x WarFare x Square Deal Stress Carrier Bred by & Owned with Goss Showpigs

From the Dam & Granddam that brought us Bone Thug, PBG

is proud to introduce our latest addition to the Exotic line-up. Monster Stick x Warfare x Square Deal. Bred by Goss Showpigs. When the Goss’s hesitated in how they would rank Thug vs Smoke we knew we better pull the trigger - real fast. Thug double and triple booked from August until late November and it was certainly great to have an option for customers wanting a similar pattern and the same awesome female line behind him. It is going to take a long time before we say we like him better than THUG but visitors are wanting to put him there and the fact that their is even a debate makes us feel really good about the future. Same square design as Thug in a very “Showy” package.. Monster legged, huge stifle, tail set way up in the air!!! The most frequent question we got on Smoke was “What color will he throw?” First reports on Smoke babies are off the charts and the all important color question seems to be he will throw color similar to a chrome/belted boar on white crosses with belted, blues and whites reported on half Yorks. What he does on pure Yorks we do not know yet. If he throws them white - watch out!!!

GunSlinger

Sired Grand Champion Barrow American Royal Proven Producer of Yorkshire-Appearing Babies Big Guns x High Standards (Perry’s Friday Sow) Stress Carrier Bred by Perry Genetics

Feet and legs-dead square. Toes-perfect. Joints clean as a whistle. Comes out of his blade with incredible power. Massive chest. Incredible

top-shape that blends very smoothly back into his ham - and that is where we and those that have seen him in person think he is absolutely one of a kind. We have never seen a stifle that is this full and square all the way up to the tail head - it is almost literally straight across from his tail head out to the edges of his massive hams - which look like they were chiseled out of granite. Sounds freakish as you describe is yet it all blends together perfectly. GunSlinger started to pile up the victories in early fall and that is what we heard repeatedly this summer - wait until you see my GunSlinger barrow / gilt. Grand Overall Barrow American Royal, Grand Overall New York State Fair, Res Light Cross Male Duncan, Numerous County Grand Overalls as well as 5 Class-winners InSF 4H, Class-winning $2500 gilt InSF Crossbred Classic from Mench & $10,000 2nd Place boar Crossbred Classic from Perry Genetics. One of the frequent questions we get—”Where does GunSlinger work” Here is what we see and has beenreported to us as trends so far. Feet and legs are impeccable across the board. Off-spring will be sound as a cat. Color will follow the dam. Pure Yorks tend to be very largely snow white, belts go belted, sows that have red will get calico or red-belts. Babies are immature and very loose in their design. Babies will tend be not shredded early but when you want it you can get it - FAST. He will put as monster a channel down a top as any.

Most common trend on where he works - Take him to as much bone and width as you can. He lets great sows do their stuff. We think he is a “breeders” boar. You can see the twinkle in the eye of the guys that saw what he did on their stuff this year as they have a year under their belt to know where to go to really make it fun. We think that if you know how to use him - the aisles will clear when the GunSlingers roll into the show. Gunsslinger has continued his great run with Reserve Light Cross Weanling Male @ Duncan & 6th place Hamp Barrow @ Houston

#Hashtag

Swagger x Heatwave

Stress Negative

Bred By Heimer Hampshires

We had discussed purchasing a Swagger son with Jesse for a few months so on our way back from an

awesome OYE, we stopped thru to see 3 sons he had retained We were very impressed with all 3 of the boars. When we were able to finalize the purchases of BONE THUG & BONE CHILL for our exotic line-up, we figured we were out of the picture on any of them. But when the boar Jesse told us most resembled his dad was going for what we thought was an absolute steal, we could not pass him up. If Jesse had said we could have the #HASHTAG for $6000 when we stopped thru, I would have loaded him in the back seat of the car - and it was my wife's car!!! Here is how #Hashtag was described in the on-line sale. - “89-1 represents everything that's been so good and so consistent with Swagger offspring. Of this trio, he's the most 'typical' of a Swagger-sired boar in terms of his look, body shape and muscle. This boar is absolutely monster chested and extremely square from his blade to the ground. His back shape starts immediately behind a massive blade that sits wide and he's as square and true all the way back as you'll find. He has the patented Swagger 'look' - his head carriage is naturally high and without effort. Many Swagger barrows seem to find another gear when the drive wears on and this guy is no exception. He's as mobile and athletic as you'll find for one with this much width and muscle. When I say this one is a typical Swagger, I also mean this one should generate like Swagger. He should stamp the same look, muscle and build - consistently - and that consistency can be awful hard to find in this business. This boar truly represents everything that has been so good with Swagger. He has been extremely popular so far and if he comes anywhere near his dad – this will be one of the best investments we have made and we believe will provide a valuable option for our customers.

Mercy Rule

No Mercy x Warfare

Stress Carrier - Bred by & Owned with Goss Showpigs

PBG is very proud to introduce MERCY RULE our No Mercy x Warfare son from Goss showpigs. The rumble coming out of the Southwest on No Mercy has been pretty loud. MERCY Rule’s Warfare mother is the dam of Goss’s 2012 American Royal Grand Overall Barrow who was bred very similar as he was a No Fare son. We want to be certain we have great boars for our customers to breed their Collector, Thug, & Chill females to and we think MERCY RULE is an incredible option to go along with Young Ambition (SuperMonster), #Hashtag (Swagger) & GunSlinger (Big Guns / Perry Genetics). The mother of Mercy Rule is Warfare x Day-tripper sow who won her class @ OYE & has been a rock star producer for the Goss’s as in addition to the American Royal Grand she has raised in 3 litters: 2012 Premium Sale Barrow @ Tulsa (littermate to American Royal Grand). That litter also picked up numerous grand overalls @ Jackpots in the SW. In her 2nd litter she produced the 2013 OYE Reserve Division 1 Crossbred Barrow. In this her 3rd litter, in addition to Mercy Rule, she produced a Premium Sale Barrow @ Tulsa. Mercy Rule’s maternal Grandmother is the Day-tripper x Lumberjack pure Yorkshire who is the 2nd of the twin tower foundation females (along with THUG & SMOKE SHOW’s Grandma) for the Goss’s. She was a class winner @ Southwest Regional, Reserve Champion York at Dallas, & Reserve Champion York at Tulsa.

Monster quest

Fame Monster x Super 8

Stress Carrier - Bred by & Owned with Desert Showpigs Judge Jason Hirschfeld described this guy as being a “creature” - and we thought that was a perfect description – unfortunately that name is taken! This guy is WAY out there in bone, width and muscle and we said if he throws that into his babies – it will be really fun to watch. Not for the faint of heart – he is a MONSTER! Monster Quest has been a visitor favorite and his first litters are on fire in California and his babies have been reported as barn favorites at many of our customers this Spring. The customer list on Monster Quest has some of the most elite herds in the country and that list is growing quickly as word spreads. Many said last year they had to breed at least one to him so they wouldn’t look like an idiot if he hit. Well – It looks like he is hitting – GRAND SLAMS!!! HUGE bone and can handle it and brings an awesome look along with it. Partial list of winners to date.. Grand Market Hog KY State Fair, Grand Gilt Cow Palace, Grand Barrow Alabama State Fair. $5100 Class-winning boar Fall Classic. Champion Prospect & Reserve Overall Western Bonanza, Reserve Progress Barrow – Western Bonanza & numerous Grand Overall Jackpot titles. Monster Quest continues to be RED HOT with Champion Boar @ WTC & Reserve & $25,000 Top-Selling Boar @ Belton & Class-winning Hamp @ Arizona National. Monster Quest has earned his place as one of the VERY ELITE sires in the nation.

Young Ambition

Supermonster x Big Ern x 7-2 Bred by Dan Young - Young Livestock Stress Carrier Purchased from Warye & DeOrnellas

Young Ambition is the Supermonster son that we have been looking for ever since we

started the stud. We saw the picture Paul Warye put on Facebook and were planning to give Ronnie or Paul a call the next day. But Ronnie beat us to it and called us that afternoon saying he had the best Supermonster son that he had ever seen and he had traveled thousands of miles and countless hours looking.  So we hopped in the truck, headed two hours east, handed Paul a $50,000 check and headed home with a boar that we love to let out and just roll across the yard. Young Ambition was purchased as a weanling for $10,000 from Dan Young.  They told us that he was the most impressive baby they had seen and others have told us the same.  He has the Supermonster design and look with a MONSTER chest floor that is dead true all the way to the ground. Massive rib that flows back into a super deep flank. Tons of muscle and top shape that is loose and long that allows him to float around all day long. We have quickly noticed the trend that great boars have great females behind them and this guy certainly does.  His mother is the Big Ern x 7-2 sow at Dan Young's that raised the Grand Overall Barrow at the Missouri State Fair shown by Bailey Pope that was a very impressive beast. Sam Warye showed the Young Ambition’s littermate barrow pictured to Grand Overall Honors (800 Head Shown) @ the Champaign Co (OH) 4-H fair. Young Ambitions other littermate was 2nd in class to the Champion Cross & Reserve Grand Overall InSF that Mr. Kirkpatrick dedescribed as the deepest he saw all week. Supermonster on the Bone Collector / Hillbilly Bone lines is already making a splash and we are very confident Young Ambition can get it done. HE is stamping his babies with his incredible look and power and customers are thrilled with them! Time will tell and but we absolutely think Young Ambition has a chance to be a truly great sire. Young Ambition on daughters out of the Bone Collector line-up - WOW!

HayMaker

Point Maker x The Preacher

Bred by Riley & Ethan Wendt Stress: Negative EN: 11-5 Reg#: 483781005

HayMaker is the Champion & $22,000 Top-Selling Hampshire we purchased from Riley Wendt at the 2014 WTC.

& Ethan

January may not be the most financially viable time to lay in a Hampshire but when a great one is available, we think it is always the right time. Blown way open on both ends, fits togeher perfectly, gets out and goes and goes. Freak that can handle it is the best way we heard him described and we agree 100% with that description. We are thrilled to be able to add HayMaker and Anarchy to a Hampshire line-up we think can play with any you can find.

Mayhem, Meet Your Maker, Momma's Boy, Mark'd Man, Anarchy, & now HayMaker We think that is a really cool line-up that can provide some great options to breed all kinds of Hampshire females to make the belted breed better!

MEET YOUR MAKER

Point Maker x Augusta Bred by Steve & Laurie Hannon EN 1-2   Reg#482790002

MEET YOUR MAKER is our $10,000 Point Maker x Augusta Hampshire (off-belt in the Crossbred show) purchase from Steve & Laurie Hannon.

The cleanest jointed squarest made Hampshire we have seen with this much bone. MONSTER legged. If he sires his feet and legs into his babies this could be really fun. AND he has a monster top and stifle to go with the impeccable structure. It is an absolute blast watching him prowl around the yard.  He is as good and sure footed a Hampshire as we have seen in a long while.  The interest in Meet Your Maker has been awesome and he has already seen use on not only great Hampshire females but many are also using him on some great crosses as well. Watch the video on our website and we think you will understand the unique structure laid into Meet Your Maker

Anarchy

$16,000 Duncan Champion! Mayhem x Homemade 45-1 Bred by Cook Family Livestock EN 1-6 REG # 483562006

P

BG is thrilled to introduce ANARCHY the $16,000 Duncan Champion Hampshire son of Mayhem bred by Cook Family Livestock. Mayhem structure and look in a massive package. Incredible sow power laid into this one as the dam is mother of Home Cookin' @ Triple B . She is Homemade 45-1 x Homegrown x (Unreal x Black Oak) with her grandma being a littermate to Crouch’s Champion WPX gilt, her great-grandmother is Cook's Jane sow & her great-great grandmother is Mark Long's famous Black Oak sow. As the Cook’s are located only 15 miles from us we had seen Anarchy a few times prior to heading the southwest. Having contended to $90,000 on his nearly full-sib No Debate, we very much wanted to bring him right back to Rush County. Anarchy is from a very deep litter which includes 2 littermate sisters that are KILLER good. Anarchy ranks WAY up on our list of the Hampshire boars we have seen in a long while and feedback from those in Duncan is that many agreed. Great Hampshire boar, out of a great Hampshire sow, a great Hampshire sire and from a firm that is on fire making great Hampshire breeding stock. We are very confident he can make Hampshires better.

Mayhem

Capital Investment x Long Time Coming Bred by Heartland Elite Showpigs EN 11-2 Reg# 478666002

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. Mayhem’s mother was the Reserve Hamp Gilt at the 2011 Indiana State Fair. Mayhem’s littermate won Grand Overall Barrow @ Wabash County (IN) and that is one tough banner to bring home. Mayhem stunned us when we walked him out last winter. He looked better than he ever has and many have said he is one of the most impressive mature Hampshire boars they have seen in a long time. He is MONSTER legged and can get out and roll – AN IMPRESSIVE BEAST. Not only does he look impressive in how he handles his power, his babies are flawless in their design. MAYHEM sired 2 of the best Hampshire boars we have seen in a while in the $90K InSF Champ No Debate & the $16K Duncan Champ we purchased - Anarchy. Along with the Grand boar at Indiana & Duncan, the Rule Family showed a Mayhem barrow that was a class-winner @ InSF 4-H and went on to be Reserve Hamp @ NBS. Matt Morehouse also raised another InSF 4-H class-winning barrow. The Lackey family had a great run this summer with their Mayhem gilt who was shown to Champion or Reserve 6 times on the IJSC as well as picking up a Grand Overall title and a 4th Overall title. She ended up being the 3rd Overall Hamp Points gilt. We think many used Mayhem like we did and shied away from power. We have changed the way we are going with him and are going to take him to power as he will certainly keep the power in them and it looks like he will put incredible wheels under them. Hampshires may be the most challenging breed out there but the reason the stands at Indiana are still packed for the Hampshire show is because when you can put Hampshire boars together like the Cooks did at Indiana and Duncan and like the NAILE Champion shown by Lexi Delaney produced by Keppy’s - there is nothing more fun to watch drive across the ring. Mayhem continues his awesoeme run with Reserve Hamphire Gilt @ Ft Worth & Reserve Hamphire GIlt @ San Antonio (2 different gilts).

Mark’d Man

Look At Me x Unreal

(Mother of OH MY, OH YEAH, Above All, & Stop Me) Bred by and Owned with Mark Long EN 4-3 Reg #480627003

From his massive shoulder thru his barrel rib and huge top, back to his huge hip,

this is one of the most unique Hampshire boars we have seen. There are parts here that we think can do some SERIOUS changing in the Hampshire breed. Mark’d Man traces back to Mark Long’s famous Black Oak sow that has been as influential in the Hampshire breed for the last 5-10 years as any we know of. Another example of a great boar with Hall Of Fame female blood-lines backing him up. We hate to be redundant in describing him but -LOOK AT THAT FOREARM AND MASSIVE RIB AND HOW IT EXPLODES – (REPEAT AGAIN FOR EMPHASIS) - EXPLODES - ALL THE WAY BACK TO HIS HUGE STIFLE.. There was a pretty cool time not long ago when the Hampshire breed had a large group of very interesting and independent breeders who were constantly reaching out and trying things that they believed would make the Hampshire breed better. The night before the Indiana State Fair Hampshire show there would be huge groups getting boars out and studying and discussing them well into the morning. We think it would be an absolute blast seeing them study Mark’d Man . There are good cool-looking boars that take an awesome picture if you hit them for the absolute right nano-second and then there are BREEDING PIECES. We think Mark’d Man has some things that give him a shot to be a truly unique breeding piece in the Hampshire breed. We know we have never seen one like him!!! Mark’d Man’s first babies look flat out incredible—stout, moderate, massive and huge boned. Maybe 2 of the best Hampshire litters we have started and we have had calls from customers with the same report - STOUT, MODERATE, MASSIVE BONED. Time will tell but Mark’d Man certainly appears headed in an awesome direction.

Momma’s Boy

Homemade 17-3 x (Homebody x Model-T Daughter) Bred by Ottenwalter Showpigs EN 58-3 Reg# - 480417003

Momma’s Boy is the result of mating Homemade 17-3 to the Homebody x Model-T daughter we sold to Ottenwalters that

grabbed Grand Overall Gilt honors @ the ‘12 NJSA Western. Possum’s littermate gilt grabbed Champion Hampshire honors @ OYE that same year. Momma’s Boy’s paternal Granddam was Newnum’s 2009 Reserve Overall NJSS Gilt and his maternal Granddam is our foundation Model-T sow that Jerry McLemore told us was the best he had let go of when we purchased her. We have noticed pretty quickly that most of the boars that end up in the stud have at least one great female laying behind them and Momma’s Boy proves that point more than any other. Pictures usually don’t tell you much about soundness but we think you can get the picture that Momma’s Boy isn’t afraid of where his next step is gonna land. We think there are lots of Hampshire sows that can use what Momma’s Boy has to offer. Momma’s Boys babies look just like you would think. Stout, wide, huge boned. Momma’s Boy is off to a great start with Cody & Mike Day’s class-winning boar @ Belton.

Bad Cat

Outlook x Thor

Dam is littermate to That Guy and Apollo Bred by Vickrey Showpigs EN 9-8 Reg# 114775008

If you are in the hunt for a Landrace to make them stout, moderate and showy, we are extremely confident BAD CAT is

the best option we have seen for a long time. MASSIVE topped , MASSIVE chest, MASSIVE as he travels away from you and yet his feet and legs are awesome and can motor all day long. This one truly shocks people when we walk him out. Similar to the statement we made when we got Superman - If his babies take after their dad, you are going to be in the hunt. We are trilled to have him in stud and very anxious to see what he can do. We honestly thought it wouldn’t be until the fall that we would see much activity on Bad Cat – but some of the very elite Landrace breeders are getting in quick on this deal. We think he can be an absolute terror in the Landrace breed. Bad Cat is off to an awesome start with Champion Barrow NJSA Western Regional, Greg & Susan Gonzalez’s Grand Overall Club Pig @ The Western All Breeds Show, Chance Waldrip’s $4000 Landrace-appearing barrow, Brattain’s awesome litters that were topped by gilts bringing $2700, $2500, & 2500, and Mike Fischer’s litter that was headed by $3700 & $2500 gilts & $1600 barrow.!

Full Force

PSSS Nom Nom Nom x Payload Bred by Raymond Rice Stress Carrier EN: 3-1 Reg # 43763001

Full Force is our NBS purchase from Raymond Rice aand is a stress carrier son of PSSS Nom Nom Nom x Payoff.

The fact that we already had 5 Poland boars that we think combine to provide a very stout and diverse offering should give you a pretty good indication of how we feel about Full Force. Jake and Nolan told me there was a Poland boar we really needed to buy and I asked them one question - “ Do we need him to breed to our sows?� and they both said absolutely. When he rolled off the trailer - I was thrilled they pushed hard to get him. Full Force is one that will see big time use on those females in our herd that need to get blown open and keep their shape and put excellent structure under them. This is one pretty amazing Poland boar in our opinion. Boar for boar, we think Full Force can go toe-to-toe with Perfect Storm and if you have toured the stud you know we LOVE Perfect Storm. Each one is unique in a different area but we are thrilled to be able to offer both out of our stud. We know how Mr Rice feels about this one and we agree and are not going to shy away from telling everybody we can that this is one incredible Poland China boar in our opinion. Visitors who have seen him agree that he is big time. This is why I listen when the boys get excited - told me we had to have him and I absolutely agree. HE IS A BEAST & HE CAN ROLL!!! Full Force is off to a great start here and will be seeing a very large number of our best this summer & fall!!!

Legacy - Full Force - Perfect Storm - Titleist - - we LOVE our Poland China line-up!!!

Titleist

Dang Good Hog x Unstoppable Bred by Hayden Sandall Stress Negative EN 5-3 Reg#43387003

Titleist is our $7500 Private Treaty purchase from the Sandall Family.    Stress Negative son of Dang

Good Hog on an Unstoppable dam. Littermate to the gilts that have been doing well on the circuit for the Sandalls and sold for $4500 to Hirshfeld privately and JR Armstrong purchased the other for $1600 at the STC. The only downside to buying Perfect Storm was our concern that no matter how hard we tried he will overshadow one of the better Poland boars we have seen in a while in Titleist.    We knew from his video he was impeccable in his structure.  The way he reaches and grabs the ground on his back two is pretty rare in the Poland breed in our opinion.  What we didn't know from the video was that he would be bringing the massive top and rib that he has.  This guy can absolutely float all day and has an up-headed look-at-me presence. Don’t miss out on one of the most uniquely sound yet powerfully attractive Polands we have seen for a LONG time. Following the trend of a great female behind them, Titleist is out of the Unstoppable gilt Hayden purchased from ASI that was 3rd Overall @ Springfield and Champion Poland & Reserve Overall Gilt @ Nebraska State Fair 4-H. Customers have been very pleased and commonly are surprised the power he is bringing to his babies along with the excellent structure that they thought they would get.Some of our very best this spring have been Titleist on Wanda & her best daughter including the $3300 $2500 gilts pictured.

Legacy

One Look x Lock Down Bred by Jerry Masters Stress: Car EN:15-9 Reg#: 43943009

PBG is proud to introduce - Legacy- the 2013 Fall Classic Champion Poland China from the legend himself -Jerry Masters. Sired by One Look on the Lock Down sow that raised the 2010 OYE Champion Poland Gilt & sold for $11,000 this summer to Waldrips in Jerry's dispersal sale. Judge Ray Rice said "If this is truly the last boar Jerry Masters drives, he will end with one that will leave a legacy in the Poland breed." Good everywhere but maybe the best and most massive front 2/3 we have seen on a Poland. Purchased for the same reason we purchased Full Force - bust Polands WIDE OPEN . He joins Perfect Storm, Full Force, & Titleist to keep making Polands better.

Perfect Storm

Heat Wave x Lock Down Bred by Jeff & Margaret Wingo Stress: Neg

EN: 2-5

Reg#: 43622005

Perfect Storm is our $35,000 STC Poland China boar purchase with the Frank Sandall family-from Jeff & Margaret Wingo. With the private treaty purchase of Titleist - our negative Dang Good Hog son from the Sandalls we had decided we would only be interested in a Poland boar if we found one that was the most monster boned one we had seen.

Well, we found the most monster boned and footed one we have ever seen. We have never seen front toes this wide and square on a Poland and not on very many of any breed. Then we see the set to his front and rear pasterns and they are PERFECT. Then we see he is Stress Negative. Then we see him roll down the aisle in an incredibly athletic package. You will rarely see a Poland that reaches and grabs the ground with his rear pasterns like Perfect Storm. Then we see his rib, body & mass. Then we see his awesome top and rump shape.Then we see he is 3/4 outcross to PSSS Nom Nom Nom and an outcross to the Pretty Good Hog / Dang Good Hog / Done Deal lines and it hit us all as the PERFECT STORM. We have never seen a Poland China that reaches out and grabs the ground with a monster set of rear feet like this guy. You never know but if he hits like we think he will - this could get real fun -real fast. Perfect Storm is converting non-Polandites at a pretty good clip. First babies have hit here and at customers and reports are consistent - Perfect Storm has a shot to take Polands to a whole new level. He is setting the pace for Polands on-line starting with Arthur’s$1900 & $1200 Gilts, Brattain’s $3000, $2100, & $1650 gilts & our $4000 Storm daughter. He is stamping them so cool & jert fronted with as good a structure as you will see in a Poland China. You will know when a Storm hits the ring - a look all their own.

Crew Love

2013 NBS Champion Spot! Entourage x Big Gulp

Bred by Malone Showpigs Stress Carrier EN 11-5 Reg# 153192005

PBG is thrilled to announce the purchase of "Crew Love" the $6000 NBS Champion & Top-selling Spot boar from the Malone’s that is an absolute truck. Sired by Entourage on a Big Gulp daughter. Double Take & Radioactive have been very popular and we were hoping to find another good Spot to meet the demand. We were thrilled to have Crew Love show up at NBS and to be able to bring him to PBG. If you need to add power and mass into your Spots and still keep them sound - we think Crew Love can get it done - BIG TIME. We believe with Radioactive and Crew Love we were able to add 2 of the very best Spot boars produced in 2013.

Double Take

Ram It x S & L

Bred by Matt & Tammy Miller Stress Carrier EN 84-2 Reg# 149793002

Double Take is one exciting Spot boar! We love boars that we feel can be “movers and shakers� within their respective

breeds, and when we saw DOUBLE TAKE in Des Moines last year, we thought he was one of the more extreme Spot boars we had seen! This is one massive, wide, heavy boned dude! We think he we was the widest chested boar we saw of any color in the barn at WPX, and we expected him to produce elite spot showpigs that will be tough to beat. We had to do some serious convincing of some folks how good Double Take looked when we got him home. Many of them are now reporting that their best Spots are Double Takes and they are coming back for more. Double Take has an awesome summer. Producing Champion Spot and 5th Overall @ the Wisconson State Fair Badger Classic ; Champion Spot Gilt Ohio State Fair Open Show; Reserve Champion Spot Gilt Ohio State Fair 4-H. Class winning barrow Team Purebred Springfield, Reserve Overall Gilt Hancock Co (IN) 4-H DoubleTake has gotten even hotter in the Southwest with Reserve Champion Gilt @ Houston, 3rd Overall Spot GIlt San Angelo Open, 2nd place barrow @ Houston, Class-winning Gilt @ San Antonio

Radioactive

Like No Other x Double Feature Bred by Lowdermilk & Hege Stress Carrier   EN 4-1   Reg#152303001

RADIOACTIVE is our $10,000 Like No Other x Double Feature purchase from Lowdermilk & Hege. We weren't sure we were going to go after a great Spot this year but this was one Spot we felt we could not pass up.  Huge boned.  Huge and powerful out of his blade.  Huge ribbed. Huge topped.  Dead square on all 4 corners.  We think as square a rump as we have seen in a Spot boar with a tail head that is high as you can put one. We aren't going to profess to be masters of the Spot breed by any stretch but we certainly study them enough to believe that this is one UNIQUE Spot boar.  Like we said on Superman - if his barrows look like him - STAND BACK!!! A huge thanks to the Lowdermilk & Hege family's for contacting us on this guy - HOLY COW! Reports on Radioactive babies are that he is stamping them just like he is built. Square, moerate, excellent tail set and really cool dark color patterns. Seems like how a boar matures thru the 12- 16 month range gives us a very good indications of how his offspring will do in teh the showring. If that holds true, Radioactives are going to kill it this summer as he looks INCREDIBLE. If they still showed Jr Yearlings, it would sure be tempting to load him up!

Ferarri

HRR 11 Lightning 1-3 x MG Dozer 2-8 Bred by Doug Loof

You see it coming in the rear view mirror.

It’s red, and sleek, and fast, and like nothing you have ever seen before - what the heck is it - FERRARI. FERRARI was our $4000 private-treaty purchase from Doug Loof. He is out of HRR11 Lightning 11-3 and the Reserve Gilt @ the 2012 Indiana State Fair Open show sired by MG Dozer 2-8. Our goal is to offer the most elite genetics available in every breed and we are as confident that FERRARI fits that bill as any boar in stud. If he does not have a significant impact to help continue the improvement of the Tamworth breed we will be very surprised. We purchased Ferrari very late in the season and he is very young but it has been a blast to see visitor’s faces when we roll him out. His back legs look like a FLUFFY show steer ready for the grand drive. Very unique and interesting breeding piece. Huge topped, cool fronted, huge ribbed, and perfect Tamworth breed characteristics. Not a ton of folks got see Ferrari as he got here very late last fall. We agree with one visitor that breeds Tams who said. - “Every Tamworth female in the country ought to bred to that guy” . Ferrari is one fun Tamworth specimen to study - INCREDIBLE!

Let’s Roll

Better Be Ready 8-4 x Miss Indy (Convoy) Bred by & Owned With Wade Hendrickson EN 5-2 Reg# 150042

LET'S ROLL is our BETTER BE READY 8-4 X MISS INDY 8-1 Hereford addition from Wade Hendricks. Littermate to Grand & Top Selling Boar STC.

LET'S ROLL is a brother - sister double-bred Convoy mating that we think can have a huge positive impact on the Hereford breed which has been improving very quickly the past few years. Muscle to burn, massive boned, huge chest floor, look at the tail-set and look at the set to his pasterns. We love the ones that can catapult a breed and we think this bad boy can get it done. When you have one this good and this tightly lined up it usually works out pretty stout. We have heard of soem very high $ Let’s Roll babies cahngin hands this fall. He is making them STOUT-STOUT-STOUT

Rusty Gold

Sycamore x Yellow Dog Bred by & Owned with Doug Loof EN 16-1 Reg # 146502

You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit in the wind and

.......you don’t ignore Doug Loof when he tells you about Herefords. Rusty Gold was the Hereford boar Doug told us last summer was the best he ever bred. Everything that could go wrong went wrong with Rusty. Collected WAY young and ranted out to nothing right before the open house. He found a ride on some really good females but it was late in the season and we just didn’t want to carry him all thru the summer as spring/summer are not large Hereford seasons. BUT then Rusty goes to the National Hereford Show this Fall & with 6 gilts shown & wins 4 classes with 1 gilt 2nd to another Rusty, & the other 3rd. Grabs Champion & $2100 co-top selling gilt for the Geer Family & Champion Gilt in the Junior Show.

Rusty Gold just picked up his 2nd straight National Level Champion Gilt with TP Southwest Champion honors.

Cloud 9

Doc Logan x Mighty Mack 74-1 Bred by Ricker Yorkshires EN 76-6   Reg# 544486006

Our #1 priority heading into the summer was adding a great Yorkshire boar. We weren’t sure where he would pop up but we knew it would very likely take a big number to get him as the demand for Yorkshire semen is pretty stout. The number ended up being $60,000 and we think it will be money very well spent.

Garrett ended up being prime on watching the Yorkshire show for us @ WPX and there was NO doubt what boar he thought we needed. There were several really good Yorkshire options at the show and a couple that we sure would take in a heart-beat as well but when we looked thru them after the show, we all agreed that the Ricker boar was one of the more unique Yorkshires we had seen in quite some time. Very intriguing in his combination of a powerful yet extended head and neck. Massive in his top and chest and all wrapped up in a very correct structure with a hip design that is nearly perfect in our judgment. If you’re tired of Yorkshires that have a speed-bump-like ham-loin junction we aren’t sure we have seen many that we think can fix that faster than C9. Add the backing of the elite Ricker Showpigs Yorkshire herd and going back the Mighty Mack 74-1 line makes us feel really good about his predictability. It sure seems like showpigs that can bring extension along with tremendous power thru their front ends AND carry that power all the way thru are sorting to the top pretty quickly. We think CLOUD 9 combines that as well as any Yorkshire we have seen in a long, long time. We think he will be able to make a huge splash in the showpig world and produce breeding stock to influence several generations. We think CLOUD 9 can help make your dreams come true. What we are hearing so far on Cloud 9’s is that their structure is impeccable, they will start off green and then they will come liek a freight train. The only issue for Cloud 9 so far this sprng is that his babies are being grabbed up by some of the best feeders before they make it to the on-line sales. Good sign that it could be a very fun summer for Cloud 9.

Cool Cell

SuperCell x The Grizz Bred by New Wave Genetics EN 4-1 Reg# - 531068001 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. 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! Cool Cell has been popular since we got him but he has a near cult-like following in certain areas. Reports this Spring indicate that he is not disappointing his fan-base. Grand Overall Gilt Oregon State Fair, Grand & Reserve Washington State Fair, Gracie Flaspohler showed her Cool Cell to Grand Overall Gilt @ Franklin Co (IN) 4H, Cool Cell also sired New Wave Genetics boar @ STC selling to LVS, & the 3rd overall barrow @ the OK- ARK State Fair. We have been very pleasantly surprised how popular Cool Cell has remained and are customers tell us it is because it is very hard to find a Yorkshire boar that will stouten them up and moderate them and also be an outcross to many of the popular lines out there today.

Gated Community

Watson NBS Hog College*

*

Crazy Bone x Sparkplug Bred by Watson Yorkshires EN 23-2 Reg# 549492002

Gated Community is our $14,000 NBS Hog College purchase from Watson Yorkshires.

Crazy Bone x Sparkplug son. This boar was the primary reason we headed up to Austin and we are glad we did. Put Watson power and structure in a very cool-looking package and we think he is one that can deliver banners - right now, As chiseled and cool look to a Watson boar as we have seen. We have been talking to the Watson family for a awhile now to get a great one laid in as they have clearly proven to have genetics that are bred to generate. WGW is a true foundation that you find laid in to many of the great ones and we think Gated Community has an awesome shot to continue that tradition.
