The 2017 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. We are excited about this years boar line up. We purchased semen from sires from Southern Gold from several of their top boars. We also have a good set of boars right here at SRG. Purebred York we call "Can't Touch This" a Untouchable son we bought from Ottenwalters. Also three x-bred boars raised right here at SRG, California Chrome, Papa Gorgio and Vinni can all be seen on the boar page.

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 would like to announce that we have taken on a partner here at Salinas River Genetics. Mr. James Purkey will become part of the team here at SRG. Mr. Purkey attended High School here locally at Arroyo Grande High and was heavily involved in the Ag program. He started his first swine project actually from a gilt from us. He raised several litters out of her and then when he left for college gave her to us. She has been one of our foundation sows we call Mouse. He was also instrumental in bringing our herd boar Obsidian to us from Ottenwalters. James has been attending Chico State where he will be graduating in May. He was a member of the Livestock Judging team and received many honors. James also worked for Ottenwalter Show Pigs while attending Chico State. He will be returning home in May and hopefully becoming a Rep for Mooreman's feed. We are excited to have James as a partner here at SRG with the knowledge he has obtained throughout the industry. Our emphasis will be to have the best sows we can produce or find and provide you with the best show pigs around...
