She is a Far Out x Gone Viral x Split Second and has been a solid generator of pigs for us producing last years Champion Crossbred Boar and gilt. She is the grand dam of litter 1 and 2.
Litter one and two are out of our 2016 mountain time babies from "Dads Pick"
Litter 1: Slug fest x Champion Crossbred Gilt
Lot 1 1-1
This is a breeding opportunity you don't want to miss out on. A crowd favorite, and not without reason. This eye catching female ties in smooth to her shoulder, she gets wider back into her hip and leaves you with power. The kind that comes at you like a lady but leaves you not wishing for more. This is the kind of skeleton and flexibility that we look for when picking out females. Buy her now and have fun this summer, but the real prize will be sitting behind the crate waiting to see what comes out next year.
Lot 2 1-2
This black and white female will make sure you know shes there as soon as you hit the pen. A tall bladed level spined gilt that plants and pushes with the right kind of flexibilty at this age, I wouldn't be concerned with her holding up structurally. Take her home, keep her fresh, and push her right until showday, she'll bulk up but keep the skeletal correctness that makes her so unique.
Lot 3 1-3
This little gilt may get out horsed by her counterparts, but she is a mighty little one. With the same build and power as those litter mates, this one just needs time to take off on her own, A clean fronted wide made gilt that still offers the comfort at the ground to needed to take on the added weight.
Lot 4 1-4
This is a power female of the bunch, one of the bigger gilts that has the shape and width to keep up with the barrows. A long level spined gilt that is sqaure down to her corners, she's got the top shape and power to play at the early jackpots, but the skeleton to hold up until fair time.
Lot 5 1-7 barrow
This is the pounds heavy barrow of the barn who is going to be a monster come July. He is wide square down through his chest and leaves with the same advantage. Bold rib, square and expressive back from his blade, and still powerful out of the top of his hip. Feed him along and play with the heavy weights later.
Lot 6 1-8
This red barrow like the other reds will give you a flashy look, tall bladed and clean from there forward, level back into his hip. The flashy look that just needs feed and time to pack on the pounds.
Lot 7 2-1
Don't let the coarse hair on this one fool you, he may have taken weaning and the cold weather a little hard but just give him time. He's still a big footed bold ribbed hog that pulls together when he takes to the stick, I wouldn't be afraid to take the chance on this one.
Lot 8 2-2
This little gilt may not catch your eye at first glance, but give her a few minutes to warm up and you'll fall in love. Talk about a clean fronted, smooth shouldered female that ties smooth back into her flank, she's still level spined and square hipped. The kind that will feed well and still stay flashy come showday, and with a good showman on the stick, she wont be missed.
Lot 9 2-3
This is a stout skulled big footed female, who's got the rugged build and power to compete in the market classes. Feed her softer and target her for the breed show, and her unique features will certainly make a breeding piece.
Lot 10 2-4
A souter made female who has the added bloom and shape today, she feeds a square and expressive shape out the back of her blade and offers the added turn out of her hip. Uniquely she is still sound and square to the ground, with a look and cockiness that won't be missed.
Lot 11 2-5 Gilt
A stout made female that will catch your attention, she's smooth back into her hip and still has the power needed to compete as she goes away. A solid, square made female that should still have the ability to compete in the market classes.
Lot 12 Lot 2-6
She may not be the biggest but this little girl is an eye catcher. Shes stout skulled and rugged featured, bold ribbed and powerful hipped. Give her the love she craves, the attention she deserves, and she'll compete for you come showday.
Lot 13 2-7
This barrow has been a head turner since day one. His crazy color will grab your attention, but the unique build and power he offers will keep you competing after the first cut. This barrow is tall bladed, good chested, still productive back into his flank. He has plenty of power today but will still have room to take on more as we near showday. Pass up on this one today, and he might just pass you by in July.
Lot 14 1-16
Red barrows are all the craze, but it's more than just a crazy color pattern that this one offers. A stout skull square chested barrow that's wide and level back to his hip. Go ahead and push him into those heavyweight classes, keep him fresh and his build will let you stay competitive.
Dam of lot 15 and 16
Lot 15 3-2
Much like the 2-6 gilt, this one is a stout made square built little girl. To top it off, she ties in right to her blade, and is jet level back into her hip. That soft maternal sweep into her flank but still the power going away that you could feed her for the market classes and coast in at the middlewights.
Lot 16 3- 3
A power, product driven barrow. He is among the widest of the bunch and it's no surprise that he offers one of the squarest and most expressive top shapes of the set. You wont be disappointed as this one goes away, wide down towards his lower ham and still genuinely wide at the ground.
These litter 7 pigs are a little younger born 2-1-18 but they are from Cheap Money gilt we purchased last year from Stookey Show pigs. We bred to the Reserve Champion boar at World Pork Expo "Right One" who stands at Southern Gold.
This gilt wins a very deep class at the NJSA Eastern Regional, came home and was bred that week, went to Delaware Livestock Expo and Wins Grand Duroc, lays down in February and raises a litter of 10 awesome pigs.
Lot 17 7-3 Duroc Gilt
The three gilt is the thicker and further along since weaning of the two gilts we are offering from this litter. No doubt she will get better with age. Being born in February she is eligible for the NJSA Eastern Regional and will likely be just as competitive as her class winning mother and father. Her mother is available for sale off the farm and comes with our highest regards for being a solid mother with a promising future.
Lot 18 7-7 Barrow
This Barrow is way good and has tremendous power from front to rear. He will be hard to get around in any show but will be truly competitive in a purebred Duroc Show.
Don't pass on him just because he is red, will make weight easily for Delaware with out any holding and will be great for August fairs too.
Lot 19 7-8 Barrow
This red barrow comes from a deep litter and is ready to start packing on the weight and get to the ring. There is no doubt this mating is going to work and make some seriously productive hogs for your show season. Get in on these red ones and let the fun begin. They make great showmanship hogs and even better market hogs.
This entire litter is put together extremely well. Stop out and look through them for yourself . We picked the top five but have more at the farm after sale is over.
Lot 20 7-12 Barrow
This barrow if the furthest along of the red ones being offered and is showing an awful lot of quality at an early stage. What he may be able to go on and do at a major Duroc show is for you to find out but would not be surprised if he wins it all. Could of kept this one a boar and easily scooped up the Supreme Champion banner but decided it would pay more feed bills to cut him and let someone else have some fun.
Lot 21 7-15 Duroc Gilt
This little gilt has a lot of growing to do but is being offered as a breed pig that comes with a power packed pedigree.
All she needs is feed and little more time to catch up with her big sister and brothers. Will be great for late summer early fall shows and to put into your breeding program next fall. Her mother did an outstanding job and is available at the farm.
This years lambs are sired by Monkey Business who has produced a record number of winning offspring all over the East and West this past year.
Lot 22 Sired by Monkey Business x Hall 45 x Jedi Born Jan 11
This wether is a little green but he has a good foundation that with feed and time he should come on nice. Lot 21 is level topped and is bold ribbed that should lay the foundation to offer shape and spread up high. Since weaning he has really taken to the feed and is becoming thicker and more powerful everyday.
Lot 23 Sired by Monkey Business x Hall 45 x Jedi Born Jan 11
This wether is a twin to lot 21. He is level topped, square in his rump and carries a fuller leg deeper into his twist. We love the way he ties high and neat into his shoulder; giving him the side profile that we are all looking for in the show ring. Don't miss out on this genetically potent Monkey Business son who's best days are ahead.
Lot 24 Born Jan 12
Sired by Monkey Business x Super Duty x 90 Proof
WOW! This ewe really gets my blood pumping! She has the extra substance of bone and show ring appeal that makes it really hard to let her go! Naturally upheaded, short bladed, still tucked up in her chest floor, smooth back into her flank and level made, if you are looking for one that will get it done in the show ring and then bring home to breed, this girl provides the genetic package to provide a bright future.
This June steer sired by No surprise from Griswold Cattle company is halter broke and weighing in at 650 Lbs as of 3-17-2018. He is plenty shaggy and would be great for a first year showman. Would need to get pushed pretty good to make Delaware weight limit but would work real well for those late summer/fall shows.

We have a great set of crossbred and purebred pigs to offer this year. These pigs are right on target for covering the minimum weight requirements for tagging day and State Fair weigh in while still not going over on weigh in day. According to the DE state Fair Website all pigs will need to be 75 pounds by May 5th and or 85 pounds by May 29th in order to be tagged and eligible to attend the DE State Fair. Barrows and crossbred gilts under 200 or over 300 were sent home or to market last year and we assume that is the plan for this year as well.

Folks, let me tell you a story....... Feed, time spent walking & working on showmanship, feed (again), and environment you raise these pigs in will be the determining factor on where they end up on show day. Genetically they cover some of the best lines available and come from parents that are all proven winners. We want everyone to have a great show year with these pigs and are willing to help in anyway we can from sharing feeding strategies, to offering showmanship techniques or lessons.
Our success is based around your success!
