​Thank you to Russell and Mark for giving us the opportunity to own such a good boar. Show pig sire no doubt. If you want bone, rib, and mass and structural correctness then this boar can get it done. He will be used heavy at SRG
The 2016 Fair show pig season will be here soon so start making your plans and you need to give us a look before spending all your money on those out of state pigs. There are many firms right here in Calif. that have equally competitive hogs and you don't have to pay those shipping fees. Most of all we are excited about what our own boar "Obsidian" is putting on the ground. He is definitely passing on his genetic makeup so come look us up before heading east. We also have used our Pure York boar we call Can't Touch This (Untouchable son) and he has put a outstanding set on the ground for those May/June Fairs. We also have an Obsidian son we call California Chrome, a blue butt boar that we think can get it done. He was used heavy for July/August fairs.
Obsidian has been performing very well for us. His second litter out of our Drop Shot gilt, we took to the Great Expectations Sale hosted by Gen X Farms and it was received very well. Many thought the top selling barrow in the group was the best pig in the barn. 8 pigs sold for $6000. We currently have a lot of March, April and May pigs due out of him so if you are looking for pigs for those later fairs give us a shout.

Unfortunately we lost Obsidian last week but we have a couple of sons out of him that are just as promising that we will post pictures of soon. He sired numerous champions and we have retained numerous daughters out of him so he will not be forgotten.
