Obsidian
California Kid X Ottenwalters great Oklahoma sow


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.

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. 
We just purchased another great Ottenwalter boar who is out of 
Colt 45 and Renig. James was instrumental in bringing Obsidian to our program and he did an outstanding job for us. I asked James how good is this boar compared to Obsidian and his immediate answer was better. That has us excited. 
So "Black Powder" will be arriving here at SGR on March 19th and we will be posting pictures of him.
