Duroc Boars

Post by insulator » Fri Oct 25, 2019 12:33 pm

I have a Redbone gilt from Shaffers that is pretty good in all areas except she need to be squared up on her rear two. What Duroc boar can correct the rear and maintain all the other areas? Thanks in advance.

My recommendation (for what it's worth) would be to go back to Shaffer's and use Forefront, or maybe try Grand Slam from Shipley's. Both outfits have a good selection of red boars, as does Crossroads and Chad Hill Durocs. Shipley's also has some new Durocs out of Focus that look like they're very well put together, but I haven't seen any offspring from them yet. I can tell you that our Focus babies earlier this year came out with all kinds of bone and mass, and width in the back, all the way to the ground. If all else fails, try calling any or all of them and explain what you're trying to do. They should be able to make some recommendations for you.
