CMG Inga Moore X CMG Charles Dickens

Litter COI - 5.8%

Judy is the daughter of our former sow Madeline and our boar, Cedric.  She inherited her dam's agreeable disposition and her sire's longer, leaner body type.  Both Judy and Charlie have the nice torso length we like.  This should be a very nice litter.  We cannot wait to see how Judy does with her first farrowing

CMG Beatrix Potter X Flint and Steel Sam Adams

Litter COI - 7.6%

Sam and Beatrix share many of the same attributes.  They both have shorter snouts, long torsos, and excellent width and depth through the hams.   Beatrix, however, has the shortest legs we have ever seen on one of our AGH gilts.  We like a little more leg length on our sows so that their teats don't drag on the ground when they are full of milk.

 

We are hoping the piglets from this pairing will share all of Sam and Beatrix's excellent traits...with Sam's slightly longer legs. 

Spring 2020

NOTE: No sign of pregnancy as of May 31.

Litter COI - 25.1%

A planned, close, line breeding to help us solidify our Clyde-type line of gentle, thrifty, long bodied, stout American Guinea Hogs with medium-length snouts.   If there are breeder-quality piglets in the litter, they will make nice out crosses with those from other lines.

CMG Erma Bombeck

She is the largest, sow on the farm. Long, level and lean with more of a bacon hog body type. 

BKF Cedric Diggory

Good size, nice strong top line, well-balanced frame, brisk movements, and a pleasant face. Never challenges a fence.

Eight Piglets in Litter

Litter COI - 4.6%

These two should produce active, growthy piglets with larger, leaner body types. 

At least one piglet will be retained.

We have retained several of Cedric's offspring so he will be for sale after this breeding.

Anticipated Farrowing Date:

April 2020

JWM Big Sky

Well balanced sow, calm, even tempered, and easily contained in the electric mesh fencing

Flint and Steel Sam Adams

Nice big boar with good torso length, ideal snout length, and excellent feet.  A delight to work around. 

JWM Big Sky x Flint and Steel Sam Adams

Litter COI - 8.5%

An experimental breeding between two wonderful hogs.  I expect the piglets to mature into stout bodied hogs of medium to large size, with with good feet, and strong top lines.

One gilt will be retained.

Five Piglets - All Reserved

HPF Janice Joplin X CMG Charles Dickens

Litter COI - 5.5%

Janice grew well and earned a spot in the spring breeding line up.  I expect her litter to be a mix of both chunky and leaner body types.  She has been put with Charlie simply because the other boars are too large right now.  One piglet will be retained.
