Well it has been another interesting spring of 2021. A lot has happened this year and will try to put it all in chronological order. Lucy lost her litter in January. We retired her.
Ayita, Daisy, Coco and Penny all had litters. We had a total of mid- twenties in weaned piglets. CoCo will be taken out of the breeding pool again with possible retirement. She has been a super mama sow at 5 ½ years old and 7 litters.
Chalupa unexpectedly developed issues and had to be retired. He produced some really good looking piglets.
We have a new boar. He came from Shaffers Goldrush in Indiana. We named him Sampson. He is a grandson of Taco Truck on dam’s side and his sire is Transformer. He was born in December 2020. He is just now beginning to fill out and is looking good.
We have brought 2 new gilts into our breeding program. They are Nikita and Cheyenne. They are full blooded sisters out of Penny and War Cry and were born October 2020.
Ayita and Penny will be used as our breeding pairs for this fall. We used some different bloodlines for our fall litters. Ayita was bred with Deep End semen from Upperhand Genetics in Indiana. Penny was bred with our new boar Sampson. Nikita was bred with Sampson. These 3 females if they take will give birth the first week of October. Cheyenne is bred with Sampson and should give birth the first week of November.
We have a new picture of Sampson on the Breeders page.
