Welcome to the 2017 edition of “The Ones that Built the Brand!” It’s been over ten years since we bought a few gilts and decided to give the showpig business a try and wow – what a ride it’s been! This business is certainly challenging and an all-consuming way of life, but there isn’t enough space on this page or in this catalog to describe how rewarding this lifestyle is.

I am often asked about the ‘state of the industry’ or ‘where we’re headed’ and I’ll simply say this: I believe we have a vibrant industry that is providing experiences and opportunities for more folks than many ever dreamed were possible. I believe our industry is still on the rise and as long as families choose to spend their weekends and vacations showing, we will continue to see increased demand for showpigs. Fortunately for breeders, more parents than ever have recognized the value of junior livestock programs and I believe it’s their overwhelming desire for their kids to experience the #stockshowlife that continues to fuel the growth of this industry. The showpig industry is alive and well, but we all must do our part to keep it sustainable.

Last year, we released a series of videos on social media to shed positive light on the junior livestock program. We are very appreciative to everyone who liked, commented and most importantly, shared those videos. Now more than ever, I believe we have a collective responsibility to remind ourselves and those around us why this program is not only important for our young people, but also critically important for the future of Agriculture.

In 2015, many of you asked why we were selling so many sows and when you browse through this offering you’re likely to ask the same question again. It’s a fair question. The truth is this and its really quite simple: we have made it our mission to stay committed to our breeding program. Since the very beginning we have remained very devoted to growth and progress through gilt retention and we do not plan to abandon that approach. We constantly make breeding decisions to make the next generation better and if we are going to look forward and work with the next crop, we want you to have our best while they are still relevant. We aren’t going anywhere; in fact, we more focused than ever in our pursuit to make pigs for the showring that can compete at the highest level. Our expectations for our sows are high because buyers expect the best and we are extremely proud of what these sows have accomplished for our customers across the country.

In closing, these are the proven sows that have earned their spot on the hill and in the pages to follow we do our best to tell you why. There are many thrills in this business but for this breeder, nothing beats the sense of accomplishment you feel when you play a role in helping a family reach their goal of winning. These sows have built our brand, they have paid for progress and they have helped put smiles on the faces of countless young people from coast to coast. On June 20th, we invite you to join us as we offer our best and most proven generators. Thanks for reading!
