Sires and Breeding

    Our current breeding program uses around 80 show pig sows which are crossbred Yorkshire, Hampshire and Duroc. These sows are specifically bred to some of the nation's best show pig sires at Lean Value Sires and Hi-Point Genetics. We use purebred and exotic boars that are mostly stress negative as well as 3 - 4 of our own collected "in-house" sires which are three-quarter Yorkshire, Hampshire, or pure Duroc. Our show pigs are intended for market hog shows and are generally crossbred, with no purebred registration available.

    We also have an additional 80 commercial sows which are crossbred Yorkshire/Landrace/Duroc and are bred to our top "in-house" herd boars. These genetics will produce high-quality, fast-growing market hogs with excellent carcass traits.

    For additional information on each sire used within our breeding program, click on the sire's name to follow the links to the Lean Value Sires 
information page. Collected semen is available from our "in-house" sires.
