PURCHASE OF THE HIGH SELLING CROSSBRED BOAR

Introducing SEEIN’ DOUBLE :: Blurred Vision x Wedding Night x Blurred Vision’s mother (Full Strut x Warfare)

Owned with: Heimer Hampshires, MO

Bred by: Dave Dickmeyer Show Pigs

We had hopes of finding a breeding boar to complement the Dirty Secret portion of our line-up at WPX, and we’ve found him with SEEIN’ DOUBLE!

Unmatched ring presence, great muscle shape, heavy duty skeleton and elite running gear. SEEIN’ DOUBLE is line-bred and looks like his pedigree says he should. In our experience that strengthens the odds that he will generate true to his phenotype! The showpig genetic influence that this guy possesses is incredibly strong!!!

 

HOSPITALITY TENT


Throughout the week, our Hospitality Tent was filled with customers and friends of SGI from all over the country and the world! We distributed our new catalogs, breeding wheels, and had life size cut outs of a few of our elite boars and champions.

 

NEW CATALOG

Our new boar catalog highlights the history of SGI, A.I. advancements over the years, current showpig boars, champions and equipment. If you didn’t get your copy at WPX, visit our website to request a catalog today!

 

INTERACTION WITH INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS

Today, our business exports fresh and frozen semen to ~40 countries. Assisting international customers with breeding stock selection and live animal export projects is also a very core part of our business. Many of our interactions with international customers before, during and directly following World Pork Expo include education segments around artificial insemination equipment and technology implementation. SGI has global distribution relationships with artificial insemination equipment vendors, and works with pork systems all over the world to connect with the most current A.I. production equipment. Thank you to the international customers that came to visit us during the 2018 World Pork Expo!

 

SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
