The need for high quality Duroc boars never goes out of style. The Duroc breed is hotter than ever right now and we’ve always had a mission to offer the very best boars we can find. Early in those travels landed us at the Fordice ranch. A program that is synonymous with hanging lots of purple banners with red ones. Over the years we’ve developed a strong relationship with Marty & Lee and always look forward to the visits out there as you’ll be hard pressed to find a family more passionate about the Duroc breed. We’ve been fortunate to pull some great sires out of there that have influenced the breed in a big way. In our honest opinion, we may have just landed the best one yet! Mind Games is an absolutely impressive specimen that will even get the non Duroc breeder excited about red hogs! Sired by Bear Claw, our $35,000 STC ’16 purchase & Littermate to the $35,000 World Record Selling Duroc Gilt, and out of a Flash Drive X Integrity sow. This young sow is off to a fast start at the Fordice ranch racking up an incredible résumé in just 3 litters. That includes being the mother of the Reserve Overall Barrow & Champion Duroc at the ’15 NJSS and the Champion Division 1 Duroc Gilt at the ’16 NJSS! A powerful punch of a pedigree that is sure to generate! Mind Games will flat out blow your mind when you view this one. He is one that is a superb kind of an athlete the way he gets out and handles himself in motion. One that is opened up with great width and maintains ideal squareness off both ends; all while having a great level of comfort when he strides out. Study the top side of this one and he has a huge back that is shapely and massive. Big rib cage while being bold and deep in his body cavity. Dead level from the profile with a stout showpig look. This one has a chance to be the next big time Duroc boar for us in our minds. Get into the heads of the competition and leave them puzzled trying to beat you with Mind Games!!!
