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 influential 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.

Porque and her littermates are up and coming assets to the herd at PSP. The gilts are going to be big and broody in the sow herd, and are designed for production.

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

IMG_5613.HEIC

(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.

CH ILF Tapeka 56 | Thumbelina

IMG_2902.HEIC

(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 is 'HER', and brings value for yearling weight, loin depth, backfat, and maternal characteristics. With Willa as her mother, maternal power is unrivaled, and we cannot wait to see what Thumbelina's future holds. Her genomics panel confirms favorable markers for pork tenderness and moisture.

ILF Tapeka 15 | Valentina

IMG_5929.HEIC

(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

IMG_1732.HEIC

(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.

PSP Tapeka | Golden Girl

IMG_3197.HEIC

(CH ILF Landjager x ILF Gold Rush)

This female has a good broody look to her, big rib and ham, lots of eye appeal, and is backed by generations of Ivanleigh production genetics. She is currently serviced to her half sibling, ILF Gendarme to capitalize on production traits from CH ILF Landjager.

CAM Wilsons Gina 11 | Theadora

IMG_2430.HEIC

(BVF Theodore x XTC Tiara)

A "super sow" for productivity in this breed. In 7 parities she averages 10.8 pigs per litter, bringing her total farrowed to 75 pigs across her lifetime! Theadora is as long bodied as we've seen them come, great mothering ability, and has proven to be a true sow generator. Her daughters SMK Takara, and SMK Plum are also working at PSP. Herd boar, SMK Takoma is a grandson to this machine!!

SMK Wilsons Gina 29 | Plum

IMG_5912.jpg

(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. Thank you Elisabeth at Sequoia Mountain for the opportunity to partner on a sow of this caliber.

EIF Jenny 7 | Hunsol

IMG_8455.JPG

(G CH SMK Takoma x USA Kensington Palace)

On lease from East Island Farm. We love this one for her frame size, big rib, ham, and volume.

LOZ Jenny 43 | Crimson

IMG_7033.HEIC

(G CH SMK Takoma x LOZ Maybel)

A female we knew we had to have since first laying eyes on her at Lozano Farms in California. Crimson is ideal in her phenotype from a production and attractiveness standpoint. We have big plans for this one!

LDF Trish 3 | Delilah

IMG_5322.HEIC

(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. One of the highest muscling sows that we've heard of in the breed, she measured at a 6.67 sq in LEA, and 59.7mm loin depth. Delilah tested with favorable genomic markers for pork tenderness, moisture, pH, and general meat quality.

PSP Haunene | Prada

IMG_1348.HEIC

(TBD x ILF Canadienne)

Prada 12-9 ranked among the top of the Fall 2022 replacement gilt crop for carcass traits with a 5.0 sq inch LEA, and 1.2 inch backfat. This one has an 8/7 underline. Farrowed 12 in her first parity litter.
