When a breed changer hits the ring for public auction you do one thing - own him. When you find a Red boar that you want to breed all your sows to, what do you do? Own him! When you find a Duroc boar that can fix feet, add bone, add elevation and make red hogs sounder, what do you do? Own him! When you find a boar that is an inbred and lined bred granitic giant that is an almost total outcross to the breed, what do you do? Own him! Folks, HE is What HE is will be one of the true breed changers we have had at Hi Point Genetics. He is as real as they come with zero fit or frills but when you study his basic fundamental build you will notice at the ground he has huge feet with wide toes and dewclaws. He stands tall on his pasterns, his shoulder is set back on his blade, and his forearm gives you that ideal reverse “C” shape. HE is What HE is has a long neck that hooks up high and when he stretches it out it will be one of the longest necks you will find. He has a clean jaw line yet an extra stout he-boar look thru his skull, scapula and forearm. His tail root matches and his rear legs are just as big and flat as his front two. HE is What HE is has clean joints that are correct with the proper angles. This all works in unison to let him be as free-moving and correctly-built as any red boar we have seen. This Duroc breeding boar has good shape to his rib, top, and rump and will be the most complete, problem-free breeding boar you will ever find. There are few iconic breeders who have elevated the breeds they represent. Howard Parrish is one of those men, and for generations he and his family have bred some of the very best red hogs. Howard feels this boar- He is what He is- sits in his top five of all time.
If this one sell at WPX or STC you could just add another zero to his price and you may still just have half of him bought. Out cross, inbred, problem-solver that still maintains showring presence will take you on the right path. HE is What HE is.
