I have noticed more than a couple and have had several breeders call me with concerns with pigs being offered on line or at sales with definite breed character issues.
As breeders, I believe it is very important to put stronger emphasis on selling only those hogs that absolutely will not have any issues meeting classifying standards met at any show in America. This goes for any breed but our concerns are with Chester White, Poland China, Hereford and Spotted. Take another look at what you are wanting to sell to a young person and make absolute positively confident that they will be allowed to show as the breed you intended them to be and recorded as. the time for action is now. jlw
