The New Guy in Town!

Our first boar here was a Hampshire we named Tarzan (1st pic). He was prolific. We've had a few other boars here for a short time, but none measured to Tarzan. Most recently we have been using Red (2nd pic), who is a product of the best of our own herd. However, it has come time to let his daughters enter the herd, so I needed a new boar.

I called Kewannee Farms in Georgia where Tarzan came from and yesterday arrived home with a new young boar-Thor (next 2 pictures). He is 325 pounds and just ready to come into service.

It was pouring rain yesterday and so I had to stop and rig up a roof for him. He joined his first gilt this morning.

Welcome ... Thor!

Oremus pro invicem!

Jim, I wish I could send old Red to you. He's been good to us. Trying to sell him as he has plenty of fertility left.
