Sows & Gilts

Under construction!

 

Our sow lines include Awakino, Jenny, Wilsons Gina, Rona, and Rebecca Gina. We breed for size, growth rate, and conformation, preferring sows that are large and strong, with round heads, ample jowls, and short to moderate snout length. We don’t specifically breed for extremely short snouts, although these traits can appear in litters from time to time.

It’s important to us that our sows have strong legs and feet, 10 or more evenly spaced teats, excellent mothering instincts, easy & efficient farrowing, and ample milk supply. Larger litters sizes are always a plus, as is general health and hardiness, strong immunity and resistance to illness and temperature/weather changes. A sow’s thriftiness in gaining and maintaining weight throughout nursing is also important. We strive for “easy keepers”!
