$59,000 Top-Selling Duroc Boar 2017 STC
Laying in a stout set of Duroc boars has been a mission of ours since the beginning! It’s a breed that we have a lot of passion for and strive to offer the highest quality sires as possible. The Duroc show in Louisville is always stacked and this year when they hit the green shavings there was no disappointment in the quality once again. There was a pair of them that we felt could impact the breed in a big way and compliment the set already in place. We were fortunate enough to secure both of them. Stand Tall is the oldest class winner and comes from a firm who is no stranger to the red breed. The Olson firm has produced some big times sires and breed changers over the years and we feel they may have done it again here! Sired by Attention, the $190,000 World Record Selling Duroc Boar from the 2016 STC bred by RW Genetics, and out of a Can’t Stop sow; makes this one a sire with a potent pedigree. The dam and grand dam of Stand Tall are special as his mom is part of the $25,000 litter Blane sold in 2016 that went on to win her class at NJSS while another mate won her class at WPX. His grand dam is a littermate to Keep Calm. Stand Tall is one that has continued to impress every day since the show. A boar that did boar things at the show in terms of consumption and ranting hindered his flesh and fill at the show but home, settled in, and on feed this thing has turned into a monster! One that is tall fronted and cool necked with a great look. Level sided with good muscle shape. Square and correct in his skeleton with great range of motion and flexibility. Bold in his rib with good depth to his body. Big feet and good bone makes this one the complete package. Lots excitement has been brewing already about this one and we’re excited to be able to offer him. Rise above the competition and finish ahead of the rest with Stand Tall!!!
