Our two newest additions here at SRG. Gilt on the left is a Bear 294 x Super Monster 75-5. This gilt is definately what we desire in our breeding herd. We are extremely excited to bring her to SRG along with the Bone Thug x American Way 2-3 gilt pictured on the right. This gilt is a little younger but talk about bone, capacity, upheaded, she is a dandy. These two along with our own keeper gilts that are pictured on our sow page looks to be exciting times this next year at SRG.

California Kid X Ottenwalters great Oklahoma sow
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
Barrow to left is one of our Mid State Fair prospects sold to Hanna Flickinger out of our Obsidian boar at SRG. Looks like your doing a good job with him Hanna.
Obsidian California Kid X Great Oklahoma Sow
Belted barrow is one of our Santa Barbara County Fair, Santa Maria prospects sold to Kyle Dugger out of Wrecking Ball from Crossroads Genetics. Kyle has represented our farm well with his feed program and working well with his pigs. Pict. on right is at the fair. Kyle took 5th in class in the toughest class of the day, the Grand Champion of the show came out of same class. Good job Kyle!
The 2015 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 have used several boars from Premium Blend Genetics and of course our good friends at Crossroads Genetics, thanks to you folks for all your help. 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.
Another Mid State Fair prospect raised and to be shown by Rusty Stemper. This Hamp barrow is going to be tough to get around. Great job Rusty. He is out of our Obsidian Boar (Calif. Kid son).
Check out our newest addition to our Boar line up on the Boar Page.
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.
