"Paige" Defiant x Big Fish
Purchased from the Night 100 of Stars at the 2012 OYE, we feel that this gilt is the next step in taking our program to the next level.

Our sow herd is primarily comprised of Yorkshire, and what we term as "Showpig F1's" (1/2 York, 1/2 Dark Exotic) blue butt sows. Our foundation Yorkshire female was purchased as a weanling at Duncan in 2007 from John McCloud and Bruce Butler. She is a Field of Dreams (Wanna Be son) on a New Beginnings sow whose mother was the 2004 Hog College Yorkshire gilt at the NBS, bred by Wayne Huinker. Since then we have expanded the line to approximately 20 females currently in production, and they represent the "look" of an Eder Showpig. We strive to produce superior skeletal quality and flexibility in our set, and we feel that this pure base is critical in maintaining consistency in this aspiration.
