Perked Up

AMERICAN GANGSTER X GATOR BAIT

Stress Negative
Bred By: Mercer Showpigs

Our ‘Go Big or Go Home’ Customer Appreciation Sale has been nothing short of incredible in its short tenure in terms of quality of hogs that arrive at it. With paying out the purse we do, you can bet the competition will be stout! Those of you that know us, know we rarely buy baby boars as risk can often be more than reward. When this belted boar pig hit the ring, he definitely caught our attention and made us perk up. Once he went on to be named Champion Overall Male, the barn was buzzing and we knew we needed to roll the dice on this one and put him on feed. The way the crowd Perked Up when he entered the sale ring solidified that. Fast forward to the summer and we are happy with our decision. Sired by American Gangster, the $51,000 WPX Champion from 2014, and out of a really good Gator Bait mother makes this one Crossroads bred for success. His mother was the highly successful show gilt for the Mercer Family, that one on to be a successful generator for them too. Perked Up is one that is stout made being heavy boned and big footed. He is wide both coming and going while staying athletic in motion. He has a big back and huge rib cage with great shape to his top and hip. He gives you a good look thru his front end being tall fronted. If your goal is to hang the big banners then you may want to make sure you’re Perked Up!!!
