HILLBILLY BONE X CRUZ CONTROL'S SISTER (43-10)

The challenges in raising a large # of pigs can be demanding. Sometimes you need your spirits lifted a little - when we had the 18 litters in the crates and in the grower stages, they provided some of the inspiration and excitement needed to stay focused about raising better hogs. 


Back in the 80’s I purchased 4 gilts and I dreamed about what those gilts could do for me. They were extreme in thickness, real moderate, and probably plenty tight made.  After feeding and breeding on them for over 18 months, I finally got one in the farrowing crates.  After a morning that seemed like a nightmare, I went to talk to mom for relief. After a cup of coffee and one of her cinnamon rolls, she asked me why I was so bothered. I told her my experiences of dreaming what these gilts would do for me, and I didn’t even have one live pig to represent a couple thousands of dollars of investment and a years worth of feed bills.

She told me, “I love to sew. I could go to town and buy pretty & fancier clothes, but they usually tear and wear out. When I make my own, I know where the strong and the weak stitches are at.”  That might have been one of the best analogies I’d ever been given on breeding. It’s a lot more exciting to me the boars that we’ve raised out of elite females, because I know the strengths and qualities that they represent. 

There is probably a little more exotic influence in this line of hogs when compared to some of the others we’ve raised.  We hope that Hillbilly’s ability to sire appetite, spring of rib and depth of flank will complement the skeletal design and correctness  and looseness of structure that this sow family represents.  One thing is for certain – there’s bone bred in on both sides.
