Watch Video of Ruby

Ruby is an eye appealing and flashy sow with lots of bone and correctness.  She is our youngest born spring 2012 keeper gilt.  When she fills out and matches her width of skull, watch out cause she is destined to be a very impressive sow.  Ruby is extremely balanced and very athletic on the move.  Ruby’s mother is Betty, one of our top producing crossbred sows.  Ruby’s sire is Stick It who was the 2011 NSR Extravaganza Reserve Grand Champion Boar.  Ruby’s maternal sire is Strike It Rich, who was one of the legends within the crossbred show pig industry.  I feel Ruby has a bright future within our sow herd and expect her to continue to get better every day.

Ruby is the farm visitors favorite crossbred sow.  As she matures she still looks very youthful and honestly one a best looking older sows I have ever seen.  She is the dam of many outstanding pigs being raised on our farm.

Ruby is our foundation sow whom we can mate with anything and have incredible pigs.  For those that follow our herd, Ruby is the foundation of nearly all of our crossbred sows.  Her daughters also produce on just as much as she does.  She truly is a one of a kind sow.
