The "Ultimate" Hampshire boar.
Sledge Hammer is as good as it gets in the Hampshire breed.
He exibits rib, width, structured correctness and muscle on top of muscle coupled with growth.
Sledge Hammer's foundation begins with truely square legs. His bone and foot are excellent and his base width is at a whole new level setting on nice clean hocks.
His center rib and total amount of body is simply unreal.
The thickness and muscle down his top, the width at his shoulder blades, the width of hip and the total volume of rump muscle makes this guy one of the very best produced to date.
Sledge Hammer strides and walks as wide behind as you can make one while maintianing his ultra correct and sound structure.
Judge Kevin Wendt indicated in his comments at the 2014 Indiana State Fair Hampshire Show that "Sledge Hammer" was the breed changer of the event. SGI and our partners felt this superb Hampshire boar was the ultimate in progressive breed development and superior genetic crossing

In this industry, change is constant. Fads come and go; but one thing that has remained the same is the continue need for added structure with soundness. Hogs that are natural in their phenotype and not hand made; Sledge Hammer offers the total package. He comes at you with tremendous power and goes away with equal force. He will add great muscle shape, width, and stoutness while maintaining flexibility and body. He is trendy by today's standards but offers reaching power for generations to come.
