Champion Boar @ 2017 STC $16,000
The 2017 STC in Louisville was one of the deepest and highest quality Duroc shows (both Gilts and Boars) we have seen in quite some time. We had talked about a dozen different boars we thought had a chance to excite our customers and elevate our program. At the end of the day we felt we had to own the Champion! This breed changer survived the storm and has us even more excited today. Eye of the Storm has a high libido and never stops chomping or running. This tall-fronted beast always has his head up and is looking for what is coming next. His cannon bone is long and flat yet still set properly in relation to his blade, letting him take an easy stride off his front end. He is correct back into a square, level rump that is hinged correctly with the correct angle and set to his rear two. Eye of the Storm is still youthful and immature in his skeleton, yet his base is true and matches his center and top. We think this is a breeding boar that will blossom even more with time. His littermate sister might even be better. She was Reserve Champion Duroc Gilt in the Jr Show (NJSS) for the Olson Family. She is ideal in her build with excellent body mass and total balance or squareness of skeleton.
The dam of Eye of the Storm is a littermate to Reserve Grand gilt at 2013 Expo shown by the Caldwell family that sold for $27,000. And she is a mate to the Grand barrow at 2013 NJSS shown by the Guyer Family. This sow (King X Tribute) in her pervious litters raised a pair of boar stud headliners - Can’t Stop and Won’t Stop. She also produced the Reserve Champion Duroc and 3rd overall gilt expo 2014 and the Grand Champion Duroc Gilt 2015 San Antonio and the Champion Duroc Barrow at 2015 Fort Worth Stock Show. She is also the Granddam of Solid Ground the Reserve Champion boar 2017 STC we purchased. Olson Farms have numerous daughters, granddaughters and great granddaughters working in their herd. If you want to survive and thrive in 2018 use one that comes from proven bloodlines with a proven track record and create chaos for the competition with Eye of the Storm!
