Breeding livestock and helping livestock people has been a passion at SGI for 30-plus years. In fact, it’s where our roots began. Today, we are involved in more segments of the swine industry than ever before. Things have certainly changed over time, but we still hold strong to our core interests in the commercial swine industry, working with domestic and international customers to develop genetic programs, and of course, we’ve got a continued passion to be leaders in the showpig industry. At times, it feels like our participation in all segments of the industry is a disadvantage, but we are also fortunate that we can leverage learning’s from customers all over the world to serve each of you better. Over the past couple of years you’ve seen us put a renewed focus into working with elite showpig breeders to improve the quality of our showpig herd boars. Breeding livestock is a journey and not a race, and requires vision and patience. Boar stud ownership can be a humbling experience in many ways, and is dependent on great people relationships just as much as it requires great access to elite livestock. We want to extend a sincere thank you to the breeders who have helped us attain newfound success over the past couple of years. We also want each of you to know that we think this is only the beginning as we continue to build on the foundation that we’ve built together. Thank you for your continued investment in the #SG18oars program!

OUR ROOTS >>> A quick history lesson! Artificial insemination as we know it today has made many advancements through both trial and error, and the implementation of new technology. A look back shows us that there was very little application and use of A.I. in the late 1970’s. However, by 1981, SGI was the first company to ship fresh semen in long-life extender on a regular basis. SGI started shipping fresh semen in 1981 by post office and by public transportation buses to places like Dallas, Oklahoma City, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Albert Lea and Omaha. Less than five percent of the U.S. sow herd would have been bred with A.I. at this time. During the 1980’s A.I. use slowly grew with adoption by purebred and showpig breeders that wanted to make faster genetic advancement and share genes between herds. The real growth of A.I. came in the 1990’s as the integrated pork systems that are prominent today grew their herd numbers aggressively and had a need to become more efficient.

ICONIC SGI SIRES - ULF >>> No other iconic sire embodies SGI’s roots more than the Swedish Yorkshire boar, Ulf. Here’s the remarkable story about how Ulf made his way from the Swedish countryside to New York City and finally to a hilltop hog farm overlooking the Skunk River Valley in central Iowa. In the Spring of 1989, Dr. Lauren Christian was on a sabbatical from Iowa State University and was visiting Sweden. Dr. Christian’s first exposure to Ulf came while reviewing performance records of a promising pen of hogs at a swine testing station near Hallsberg in Sweden. After locating the boar, Christian’s brother Al came to Sweden for a visit. It was Al Christian who quickly recommended to Dr. Harold Hodson at SGI that Ulf had tremendous breeding potential. Dr. Hodson then traveled to Sweden to evaluate Ulf, and negotiations quickly began to export the boar. Ulf went on to get maximum exposure at SGI and his most valuable traits were identified early on. Ulf ranked at the top of the Yorkshire breed in four different economically important traits. A rough estimate showed that Ulf directly sired 2,500 litters, and left a lasting impact on the Yorkshire breed through his elite progeny that worked so well for herds all over the world! Ulf’s physical traits embodied - Build, Structure and Balance.

Build. Structure. Balance. Extras. It’s not always that simple with breeding boars, but this guy is unmatched right now in terms of his ability to generate extra feature, elite athleticism and hogs that excel in terms of their ring presence and proportions. Among his many intriguing traits is the ability to generate litters that are deep in quality. His great fertility gives us extra optimism for the value of his daughters, and that potential coupled with his barrow siring ability makes him one of the most sought after sires of recent memory. Accomplishments >>> Grand Barrow ‘17 NAILE, Reserve Cross Barrow ‘17 ANLS, Grand Cross Gilt ‘17 ANLS, Grand Barrow ‘18 National Western Stock Show, Reserve Grand Barrow ‘18 National Western Stock Show, Reserve Grand Barrow ‘18 Fort Worth Stock Show, Grand Barrow ‘18 San Antonio Stock Show, Reserve Lightweight Cross Barrow ‘18 Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, Reserve Medium Weight Hamp Barrow ‘18 Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo and several other jackpot champions.

CROSS Stress Negative Bred by: Heimer Hampshires // Final Drive Genetics DIRTY SECRET x Swagger x Black Attack

DIRTY SOUTH’s moderate build and proportions, stout feature and comfortable build make him unique to the industry. Originated at Final Drive Genetics via a bred sow acquisition from Heimer Hampshires, DIRTY SOUTH fits the bill of an elite barrow sire. Littermates included the Reserve Medium weight Hamp Barrow at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, Reserve Heavy Cross at LSU, Grand Overall at Cleveland County, OK and the Grand Overall at St James Parrish, LA. DIRTY SOUTH’s Swagger x Black Attack mother is also the mother of T-122 standing at Heimer Hampshires.


$400 | DOSE CROSS Stress Negative Bred by: Nate Warner Dirty Secret x Forbes x Bone Chill x Super Monster The best son of Dirty Secret that we’ve seen this Summer! PROVOKED is short bodied, big chested and sturdy built. Elite athleticism, stout muscle and barrow proportions make this guy a must use addition! Mother is a littermate to the 3rd Overall Gilt at the 2016 Ohio State Fair.


$400 | DOSE CROSS Stress Pending Bred by: Lettow Showpigs Dirty Secret x Blurred Vision x Black Onyx

Blending the Dirty Secret and Blurred Vision lines has seemed like a natural progression for us. EXPECTATION certainly combines the look, front-end extension and muscle shape that we’ve all grown accustomed to with the Blurred pigs. EXPECTATION has the prototypical density and athleticism that you would expect from the Dirty Secret hogs. He is just what we expected when we bred the littermate to the Grand Barrow at the ‘17 ISF FFA Show to Dirty Secret. EXPECTATION’s grandmother is also the mother of DOWN N DIRTY.


$500 | DOSE CROSS Stress Negative Bred by: Heimer Hampshires Dirty Secret x Ante Up x Hillbilly Bone KING OF THE HILL is the $50,000 purchase at the King of the Hill Pig Sale in the Fall of ‘17 from Heimer Hampshires. Lettow Showpigs, Lackey Livestock and Heimer Hampshires teamed up to secure the opportunity to make this young sire a major part of their Spring breeding plans in 2018. The dam of KOH is an Ante Up daughter out of 108-10, the influential Hillbilly Bone sow that has been a cornerstone of the HH breeding program. KING OF THE HILL saw nearly exclusive use at the three firms mentioned above during the Spring breeding season, but we are now very excited to make him available to the public! KING OF THE HILL packs all of the extras, plus he has elite show barrow build, structure and function!

$300 | DOSE CROSS Stress Negative Bred by: Heimer Hampshires Dirty Secret x Hillbilly Bone x Swagger The first DIRTY SECRET son that was added to the stud, and certainly one of the very best! DIRTY BILL has several striking similarities to his great sire, and is without a doubt the nearest to emulating DIRTY SECRET’s build, feature and comfort level. DIRTY BILL may have a slight advantage over his sire in terms of his look from his blade forward, but from their back his proportions and squareness remind us of the old man. DIRTY BILL’s mother is 74-8 and is the best of the best from the sow family that has produced the Champion Hamp at ‘12 San Antonio, the Reserve Dark Cross at ‘13 San Antonio, Grand at the TJLA Belt Buckle Bonanza and Grand at the TJLA Fall Classic. More recently, another 74 litter sow produced the Reserve Dark Cross at the ‘16 California State Fair. We anticipate big things from DIRTY BILL and he’s certainly seen some of the industry’s very best crossbred sows over the past 6 months! 14

$300 | DOSE CROSS Stress Negative Bred by: Heimer Hampshires Dirty Secret x Verbatim x “Roxy” Tapp Datt There might not be another crossbred boar in the country with a more famous set of siblings than DIRTY DEAL! His littermate barrow was Reserve Grand Overall at the 2018 National Western Stock Show. He also had full sibs that were Reserve Grand Barrow at the 2018 Fort Worth Stock Show, Grand Cross Barrow at the 2018 NJSA Southeast Regional and the Grand Barrow at the 2018 San Antonio Stock Show! DIRTY DEAL is without a doubt the most moderate, roundest ribbed of the DIRTY SECRET sons. We love this guys extra density and shear stoutness. “Roxy” continues to make her mark at Heimer Hampshires, and we are pumped up about the genetic horsepower that this young boar possesses. DIRTY DEAL saw LOTS of elite sows in the Spring of ‘18!

$300 | DOSE CROSS Stress Negative Bred by: Lettow Showpigs Dirty Secret x Black Onyx x No Fare Show barrow build and proportions make this guy very unique. DOWN N DIRTY is monster legged, stout in his muscle shape and square in his build. DOWN N DIRTY comes to us from the very best sow at Lettow Showpigs! In fact, she’s now generated 5 herd boars, 6 class winners at San Antonio and Houston, and the Grand Overall Barrow at the Iowa State Fair FFA Show in 2017. The Grand Barrow at the American Royal in 2017 raised by C&C Showpigs was a Pinnacle x Lowboy x No Fare x Night Train (same No Fare x Night Train sow family as Down n Dirty). The Reserve Middleweight Cross at the NAILE in Louisville in 2016 raised by Heimer Hampshires was an AU 143 x Swagger x No Fare x Night Train (same No Fare x Night Train sow family as Down n Dirty). This guy was EXTREMELY popular during the Spring breeding season, and we look forward to seeing his generating potential in action when his first pigs hit the ring in the Fall of ‘18 and Winter of ‘19! www.swinegenetics.com

Unmatched ring presence, great muscle shape, heavy duty skeleton and elite running gear. SEEIN’ DOUBLE is line-bred and looks like his pedigree says he should. In our experience, that strengthens the odds that he will generate true to his phenotype.

FEEL THE BURN was near to our hearts as he was a culmination of a couple of the first purchases that were made by Nick after taking over leadership at SGI in August 2015.
