Our current sow herd numbers 60 Hampshire females. Nearly all of them trace back to three littermate daughters of DMP Peterbuilt, the Indiana Res Champion Boar purchased by SGI and used successfully in several herds during the early 2000's. The Peterbuilt sows were mated to Blockbuster and those mating produced a pair of littermate 8 litter sows and 3 littermate 11 litter sows. That generation of sows were then mated to EC Rocket, Winfield, Game Day, and Quiet Giant, Poweraid, and Power pac. Many of these females from those mating are the mature sows in our herd today. Our young sows are their daughters sired by Sweet Tea, Black Oak, and Old School. We have selected females from each generation that are correct in design: wide skeleton, long-fronted, level-made, with good muscle and above average bone. Combined with these sows Black label 5-2, and Old School 2 are well suited to produce high quality show pigs that can compete on any level.
