$40,000 Crossbred Classic Purchase!!!
The Rodibaugh firm is one that has thrived over the years for consistently producing high quality showpigs and breeding stock that always find the backdrop. Many of the boars and gilts they have produced have made huge impacts across several breeds. Their legacy streams back several decades and will be a name that’s recognizable for as long as hog production exists. We had heard reports that they were bringing a breed changing Crossbred Boar to Indy that we needed to be sure to look up. When he hit the ring in Class 2, he got us very excited! Upon closer evaluation back in the barn, we knew we needed to own this one! It took $40,000 to lock him up and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Sired by Total Addiction, the Newcastle boar from the ’16 STC at BBB and out of an Anytime X Shoot ‘Em sow. Jim will tell you that Shoot ‘Em sow is a special one around their place! Romeo is one that you immediately fall in love with if you like them heavy boned, shapely and good looking. Absolutely stout in his skeleton with monster legs and huge feet. But even toes that point the right direction. Square and opened up at the ground with good flexibility and range of motion. Square and big up high too with a ditch down his back. Bold and pliable rib cage and big pin set. Height of shoulder and design from the side is trendy with a great look up front. Just a young pup being born the 14th of February, we think Romeo is a stud to be this stout at this stage of the game! One impressive specimen that needs to be on the short list to use! Mesmerize the completion and whisper sweet nothings in their ear on the way to the winner’s circle with Romeo!!!
