$40,000 Champion Boar STC
We were prepared to bid for a while on Bluegrass and feel fortunate to own him at $40,000. In our opinion, this is one of the best-made, squarest-built blue boars to be offered. The Bluegrass dam was purchased in our August 2014 online open gilt sale. The day we pictured this lady, people asked why we were selling her. Well, we never got an answer so we let her go. Bluegrass’s mom is a Point Maker daughter that is out of our old Lunchbox sow that has produced more winners in the barrow ring than any other sow at Hi Point. She too was that deep blue almost blue belted color.
This blue beast has that length of front and look, with head shape that is so desirable today. He is balanced in that he has the same height up front and at the hip. He is balanced in that he has the same thickness up high, down low, and from blade to shoulder. He is balanced in that his bone work matches his mass and that structure is balanced within his frame work. We feel this will be a champion that will live up to that title and make truckloads just like him. Truly, a Louisville Champion worthy of the title-Bluegrass!
