Re: Belton Conference
It makes me sad, that many of these show females can't do well, both in the showing and the farrowing house. Like you guys had stated, there is no such thing as a "duel purpose gilt". All females, no matter what breed or species, show be able to do well in the maternal side of her life. It's sad to say the least. What is the point of raising pigs, if you can't create good, showering females that can be honest to there breed, and be great mothers. I feel that for some people you can't be both. I want to know how many of the national champion, high dollar females actually last for more than 1 litter on there own.
