The Southwest Type Conference (SWTC) kicks off the month of March in Belton, Texas. For Midwesterners, Belton serves as a summer-like oasis amid winter weather. With a little Southern sunshine and a lot of Southern cooking, SWTC is always a favorite of folks on the show circuit. Last year, we gave you five great stops that took you beyond the barn in Belton. You can see those here. This year, we’re giving you five more places worth venturing to, if you’re itching to explore outside of the Bell County Expo Center.

Buyer Helpful Resources & Blog Posts Buying Tips

Although showpig breeders are often swamped during sale season, they want their potential buyers to ask the right questions. Not only do these inquiries help build rapport between breeders and feeders, but they also allow both buyer and seller to be on the same page regarding needs and expectations.
Showpig.com chatted with Mike McCoy of Real McCoy Genetics to see what questions he wishes his buyers would ask.

We have a small family farm. Normally, we have 8-10 Hampshires, a Duroc, and three Crossbred sows in production. Typically, we buy interest in a top Hampshire boar, each year, and use AI from the best boars available. We also have used some frozen semen and old-line genetics to experiment and try to increase genetic diversity in today’s Hampshire lines and use proven sires we like or admire for productivity. We have 30 acres of cropland that is farmed by our neighbor using organic production practices and a few cows we own in partnership to raise show calves.
