The Sow Herd
USA Wilsons Gina 30 | Patty Cake
(G CH USA Bakers Man x USA Plum Pudding)
USA Patty Cake has proven herself as an MGI producer, naming progeny such as Supreme CH USA Galloway, USA Pate du Porc, USA Jambon, USA Freight Train, among others. Carrying on the legacy of her sire, G CH USA Mahia Love 150++ Bakers Man, she will put her name down in the books as one of the most elite females in the history of our breed. Patty Cake is a top ranked sow in our herd for SNP genetic markers: favorable in pork tenderness, moisture, pH, marbling, and general meat quality.
Res. G CH USA Wilsons Gina 35 | Pate du Porc
(CH LOZ St. John x USA Patty Cake)
Pate du Porc is one of the fastest growing females we have seen to date achieving an empty weight of 245 lbs by 12 months and 14 days. She exemplifies the design we look for in a brood sow, tremendous length & depth of body, quality underline, and internal dimension. Favorable gene markers for pork tenderness, and moisture. Pate has been recognized in the show ring on multiple occasions, first taking Champion Junior Yearling sow of the 2022 IKHR Lockdown Hog Drive under judge Terry Shaffer. In the 2023 IKHR Royal Christmas Show, judge Alan Snedegar placed her 2nd in the aged sow class, and Reserve Grand Champion overall female.
ILF Rebecca Gina 9 | Baker's Special
(G CH USA Bakers Man x DHF Bushel of Corn)
Baker's Special is a prime example of our ideal sow - sound feet and legs, flexible movement, and classic style to top it off. The change she will make for our operation, and even the breed is without a doubt. SNP genomics reveal favorable traits of pork tenderness, and moisture.
ILF Rebecca Gina 15 | Beauty Eh
(CH USA Sweinhart x ILF Corn Flour)
THIS female is one of the most stylistic breeding pieces we have ever laid eyes on. Tammy really put together a storm with this one. Her pedigree explains the story. ILF Beauty Eh is a true ULTRA quality female with tremendous eye appeal. We couldn't be more excited to get her in the barn and raising pigs! Additionally, she presented the leanest backfat scan we have on record yet, and is favorable for pork tenderness, and moisture.
Supreme National CH USA Jenny 190 | Tetley Tea
(G CH USA Bakers Man x LOZ Tea Cozy)
Bakers Man daughter number three, Tetley Tea! As we evaluate the Bakers Man daughters side by side, the flexibility and length of body brought forth by her dam, Tea Cozy's influence is made apparent. These characteristics are largely responsible for Tetley's success in the ring, and we are on our toes to see what will come out of her next! Pork Panel genomics reveal homozygous markers for favorable pork tenderness, moisture, marbling, and meat quality.
CH ILF Tapeka 56 | Thumbelina
(CH ILF Landjager x BAIN Willa)
While preparing for the Canadian Import from Ivanleigh Farms in 2022, it was our intention to acquire any form of BAIN Tapeka 2, Willa genetics we could. When Tammy offered us a direct daughter of her, the feeling couldn't be put into words. Thumbelina has a resume that could go on for days, namely possessing impressive yearling weight, loin depth, backfat, and style. Her maternal potential as a Willa daughter is unrivaled, and we cannot wait to see what Thumbelina's future holds. Favorable for pork tenderness and moisture.
ILF Tapeka 15 | Valentina
(NZ Roa Ihu x ILF Crystallina)
Valentina is granddaughter to the maternal motherload sow, BAIN Tapeka 2 - Willa, sired by New Zealand Imported boar, Roa Ihu. She is a beast in the barn, presenting monsters by weaning! With her kind of maternal design, this brood sow makes for a tremendous force in the genetics game. Valentina is another top ranking sow for SNP genetic markers, being favorable in pork tenderness, marbling, pH, and general meat quality.
ILF Tapeka 28 | Gold Rush
(ILF Mahia Love x ILF Goldilox)
Gold Rush is yet another Ivanleigh bred Tapeka sow, and is backed by BAIN Tapeka 2 - Willa on both sides of the pedigree. ILF Ru 5 - Matrix made a profound role in her flashy type, which is passing on in replacement gilts! Gold Rush is proving to be the herd building kind, and has even generated a boar prospect! Furthering her value, she ranks favorable in genetic markers for pork tenderness, marbling, pH, and general meat quality.
SMK Wilsons Gina 29 | Plum
(BBK Maverick x CAM Theadora)
Littermate to SMK Takara, the dam of our herd boar SMK Takoma. Plum is phenotypically one of the best, most productively designed, largest framed sows I have ever seen in a Kunekune hog. She will go down as a game-changer in the breed. Thank you Elisabeth at Sequoia Mountain for the opportunity to partner on a sow of this caliber.
LDF Trish 3 | Delilah
(CH LDF Indigo x GMF Moonshine)
An outlier in her own right. Delilah was purchased as a yearling, after seeing the tremendous grow power she has to offer. We were even further impressed by her yearling carcass scans. Delilah tested with favorable genomic markers for pork tenderness, moisture, pH, and general meat quality.
