The story of 21-3 crossbred sow sired by Snowflake
Okay I have mentioned before I am not a big fan of my own crossbred hogs but let me tell you about 21-3. Here she is about 30 days from farrowing.
This barrow is from her litter born July 20, 2012 and will be exhibited by Lindsi Loos at the Arizona National hog show the week after Christmas in Phoenix, AZ. He is sired by COD a son of Package at the A Cut Above stud Benedict, NE.
So she has just farrowed again on Dec 17, 2012. Think she has any milk?
Trying to out do herself in the past she farrowed 13 live pigs born to Anticipation on stud at Purple Power in Chalmers, IN. He is a Duroc boar and the pigs look tremendous. I earnotched them today and they are litter number 8 watch for them next summer.
