SGIBoars “HOW TO” series, next in line is KING SIZE.
KING SIZE comes to us from one of the very best sow family at Lettow Showpigs. KING SIZE was one of the stoutest, best baby pigs that we’ve ever seen. Grandmother of KING SIZE raised the Grand Barrow at the ‘17 Iowa State Fair FFA Show (shown by Kale Boysen), and she’s also grandmother to the Grand Barrow at the ‘18 Tulsa State Fair (raised by C&C Showpigs) and she’s grandmother to the 3rd Overall Barrow at the ‘18 Iowa State Fair FFA Show (shown by Creigh Rourke) and raised by Lettow Showpigs. Several other foundation females, boars and jackpot champions have direct ties to this elite sow family.
The playbook: KING SIZE offers some of the intangibles that can get overlooked when we give boar tours. He’s got big, strong, square front feet and offers elite athleticism. He is shorter backed than his stout sire KING OF THE HILL. Ultra comfortable in his build, we think this guy can be utilized on a broad variety of sows. We look forward to seeing his first pig crop to determine where he falls on the barrow-making spectrum, but we’ve got high hopes that this line-bred stud can make a great barrow oriented option for our customers.
