Best crossbred in the rear 1/3

Post by pigboy07 » Wed Apr 25, 2018 5:48 am

Seems like each year, we get most pigs that are really good in the front 2/3 and then hit and miss in the rear 1/3. Had our best sow this year have her one of her worst litters in terms of overall structure and having her for 4/5 years pretty much know it came from the boar. Now obviously it could've just been a bad match in terms of genetics.

Got me thinking though what are some of the best crossbred boars out there that can really improve the next generation in that rear 1/3. With good fluid motion and really reaches out and tracks well. Thanks, figured I'd start my research now.

Kiss My Socks pigs are built right at the ground. Not only sound, but heavy structured and plenty of length of cannon bone to make the "trendy" ones.
