Bred By: Adam Beck & Family Showpigs
This crossbred female was another one of our daughter Kayla’s show gilts we exhibited at the 2014 NJSA Southeast Regional. This Outkast female was named Grand Champion Crossbred Gilt in the junior show. We are excited to put this one to work here and her dam is a Final Drive X Prom King Sow that is a littermate to Driven, our $21,000 STC boar sold to Lean Value in 2013. She will be a contributor here.


Rock Solid x WOW
Bred By: Adam Beck & Family Showpigs
This blue crossbred female is the Reserve Division 2 Crossbred Gilt at the 2014 NJSA Southeast Regional shown by Macy Mead.

Out of a good purebred Yorkshire sow, this one looks to have a promising future here too.

 

Sumlin x Recovery (Outkast's Mom)
Bred By: Adam Beck & Family Showpigs
This chromed up female was another part of the successful show string we drug to Perry, Georgia to the NJSA Southeast Regional in 2014. This gilt won her class there for Cody Berling. She is out of our good Recovery sow that goes by the name of Outkast’s Mom around here and has garnered the bulk of our crossbred success. We stepped outside the box and bred her to Sumlin to get a breath of fresh air and it worked well. This female along with a couple of her littermates will go to work here and create some excitement.


Catalyst x Drop Down
Bred By: Adam Beck & Family Showpigs
This female was one our favorites from the spring 2014 crop. She was the $4,000 purchase from our farm sale for the Thompson Family where she went on to be named Grand Overall Gilt at the Gibson Co, IN 4-H Fair. We were lucky enough to get this one back and are pumped about her future here. She is one of the neater babies we’ve made and feel she will pass that trait along to her offspring.

 

Fame x County Fare
Bred By: Lane Mai
This Fame female was our 2nd purchase from the ABF-DWE Bred Gilt Sale. She is another one that attracted our attention in the group of breds put together for the sale. Bred by up and coming Kansas breeder, Lane Mai, she is a neat one to evaluate. We had to own this one too and glad we did. She is an awesome built one with big legs and great design. She will be a fun one to work with moving forward here.

This Catalyst sow is quickly becoming a strong piece of our foundation. She is out of our good Recovery sow known around here as 'Outkast's mom,' and this is a big reason for her productive prowess she contributes to our program.

This calico sow is a foundation type female who is making a tremendous impact in our herd already. She is a littermate to the boar we used to have on stud called 'Somethin' Else' and is out of one of our Recovery sows that is a littermate to Rename.

Recovery x Alias 106-2
Bred By: Adam Beck Family Showpigs

This Recovery sow is one of several that we have working for us here. She is out of our good Alias 106-2 sow and this combination has been deadly for us in the past in terms of making elite level showpigs.

Recovery x Alias
Bred By: Adam Beck Family Showpigs

This black headed sow is the one when people ask what your best sow is....is the answer to that question. She is known around here as 'Outkast's mom' as she is the mother of the popular Outkast boar we have on stud here. She has several daughters in our herd and is the new foundation of our crossbred program. We rarely let daughters leave out of her and the ones that did have went on the preform well for their owners. She is a true centerpiece for Adam Beck & Family Showpigs!!

Recovery x Swamp Monkey
Bred By: Brinning Genetics

This Recovery sow from Brinning was one of a handful of littermates that we had to the popular Upperhand boar they called Rename. These sows helped boost our crossbred program to a new level. unfortunately this is the only one we have left and she is a dang good one. She consistently generates babies that have the extra shape and muscle with added bone that we strive for in our showpigs. Babies out of her look the part little and feed great for new owners. She is one that will always have a lasting legacy in our sow herd for many years.

**Rollover for Additional Image**
This is our $12,500 purchase from the 2012 Crossbred Classic. This County Fare sow was bred by Ottenwalter Showpigs and had a very successful show career for the DWE crew. We purchased this one as we felt she was one of the more elite females we had seen in awhile and that she brought new blood into our herd.

Shoot Em x Skywalker
Bred By: Adam Beck & Family Showpigs

This Shoot 'Em sow was probably the best gilt we farrowed in the spring of 2012. We felt that she was one we needed to hold back so never offered her for sale. Sired by the ever popular Shoot 'Em boar and back out of one of our good Skywalker sows only sweetens the pot for the potential that we feel this one has generate for a long time around here.

 
Adam Beck & Family Showpigs :: Sows

Shoot Em x Drop Shot
Bred By: Mench Showpigs

This our $5,000 purchase from the 2013 Crossbred Classic. This blue belted Shoot Em gilt was named Junior Division Champion in that show and also won her class in the 4-H show. We are a sucker for the blue belted color and she caught our eye during the 4-H show and jumped on the chance to own her at the Crossbred Classic. We feel this is one that can be that foundation type female and look for her make a huge impact in our crossbred program.

New Divide x Fatal Attraction 87-2
Bred By: Deck Showpigs

This New Divide sow comes from our good friend Jay Deck and is one that has stood the test of time here as she continues to generate litter after litter for us. While she may not be the most pretty thing to look at in person she makes a tremendous set of babies each time. They go out and feed well for new owners and are easy to sell for us. She definitely earns her keep around here.

Skywalker x Immortal 76-4
Bred By: Adam Beck & Family Showpigs

This Skywalker sow is another one of those individuals that leaves her mark every time she farrows a litter. She consistently generates sellable babies that continue to look the part until show day. She is out of a good Immortal 76-4 sow that did us a whale of a job when she was in production here. That sow was a littermate to the boar, All Day, that we sold several years ago privately for $20,000! We wish those sows were still working for us but this Skywalker sow carries on their tradition quite well around here.

Gary Coleman x Miss Hathaway
Bred By: Premium Blend Genetics

This was our high dollar baby pig purchase from the Laird crew and is a littermate to their boars Arnold and Honey Badger. We purchased this female to bring us new genetics and make an impact in our Berkshire herd and boy did she. In her first litter she produced the all time record selling Berkshire litter including a $8,500 gilt that went on to be named Champion Berkshire & 5th Overall Gilt at the 2013 WPX then Champion Berkshire Gilt at the STC where she sold for $7,750 for the DWE Crew. This litter also produced a class winning barrow at the WPX for Brock Allen. We feel this one will continue to implement her legacy in our herd, much like the Miss Hathaway sow has done for the Laird Family.

 
   
 

Cole Mine x Ice Age
Bred By: Adam Beck & Family Showpigs
This Cole Mine sow is one of 3 we retained from one of the best litters born here. This particular one was driven to Grand Overall Gilt honors at the 2014 NJSA Southeast Regional for Macy Mead. All 3 of those were successful show gilts and we are excited about their future here.

This Ground Level sow was our $3,250 purchase at the 2014 STC. Bred by Lambright Showpigs, she was successfully campaigned to a 1st Place finish in her class for Jess Rodenbeck in the open show at Louisville. This one we felt we needed to add because of her awesome build and design. She was square and true with excellent feet and leg placement and from the side gave you an awesome look. We are excited about the potential of this one as a future brood sow here.


Gringo x True Grit
Bred By: Ricker Showpigs
This Gringo female was our 2015 WTC purchase where she was named the Champion Yorkshire Gilt for Scott Gardner and Family from Pennsylvania. We loved this one for the balance and design coupled with power and stoutness she possessed. When we found out she was a Ricker bred female we were even more excited because of the productivity of females that derive from there. This one will get a solid chance here.


Shoot the Moon x Onslaught

This Shoot the Moon female was our other purchase of the 2015 WTC. She was a class winner and the top selling gilt in the Yorkshire show for the McMillen Family of North Carolina.

WOW x Anchor
Bred By: Ottenwalter Showpigs

This dynamite WOW daughter comes to us from Ottenwalter Showpigs and was our bred gilt purchase from them.

We feel that she will be an influential generator around here for a long time.

Bred By: Mullins and Peters Showpigs

We had the opportunity to see this female several times this summer and felt fortunate when could obtain her for a sow from Cody. It took $10,000 to own her but feel its worth every penny with the generating power she bring us. Watch for her to make an impact here as well.

Prom King x New Beginning
Bred By: Todd Harris Family Genetics

This is the sow simply known as 'The Denhart Sow' around our farm. We purchased her in the 2009 STC where she had been named Grand Overall Gilt in the NJSS for Austin Denhart. We had high hopes for this female the day we bought her and she has yet to let us down. Her foundation can be found throughout our Yorkshire herd as she has given us several replacement females to add back in. She also produced our popular 2012 STC entry, Driven, that sold for $21,000 to LVS. Her daughters generate for us as well as she is the grandma of our Grand Overall Gilt at the 2014 NJSA Southeast Regional. If you made us pick one sow that has left the biggest impact in our herd it would be without a doubt 'The Denhart Sow'!!!!!

Final Drive x Prom King
Bred By: Adam Beck & Family Showpigs

This Final Drive sow is a littermate to our Driven boar sold at the 2012 STC. She is a daughter of 'The Denhart Sow' and is already following the path of her mother in being a good generator for us. She is one we have big expectations for in what she can do. She is a prolific individual to view and passes on those traits consistently in her offspring.

 
 
   

Incredible x Royal Flush x Crown Royal
Bred By: Valleybrook Farms
This Duroc female is our $13,000 Fall Classic purchase where she was named Champion Duroc Gilt. Bred by the Bond Family from Kansas, this one has a pedigree cemented with champions.

Her balance, design, and look paired with her flawless feet and legs have us pumped for the future direction of the Duroc program here.


Light 'Em Up x Trojan Horse
Bred By: Weisinger Farms
This female was our $10,000 bred female purchase out of the ABF-DWE Bred Gilt sale. Dylan purchased this one from Nate and the crew as a baby for $15,000. She was successfully shown throughout the summer earning Top 5 in her divisions at both WPX and Louisville. When this one arrived at the farm for the bred gilt sale we knew we couldn’t let her leave unless it took a whole bunch of money to do so. Sired by Light ‘Em Up, she is one of the more impressive mature red females we have laid eyes on. With the addition of her, our Duroc program has a bright outlook.

   

Knight Club x High Roller
Bred By: Knight Showpigs
This Duroc gilt was purchased from the Knight boys in the fall of 2013 with the intent to be our daughter Kayla’s show gilt for Perry. She went on there to be named the Reserve Grand Overall Gilt & Champion Duroc. Only to be beat by the Cole Mine Yorkshire Gilt we also produced. She has a bright future here and is already off to a quick start as she produced the Reserve Champion Duroc Barrow at the 2015 NJSA Southeast Regional shown by Macy Mead

Rib Crib x Can't Touch This
Bred By: Flashpoler Farms

This is the $4,500 Reserve Champion Duroc Gilt from the 2012 IN State Fair. This female is out of Rib Crib and as you can see we love Rib Crib daughters for their ability to generate awesome Duroc babies. Rib Crib females have done a lot of good in our program thus far and with the addition of this one we feel she will continue that kind of work around here.

   
Adam Beck & Family Showpigs :: Sows

Rib Crib x Only Approach
Bred By: JJ Genetics

This is our $18,000 2013 STC purchase from Guy Jackson. Jada Johnson successfully showed this gilt to 4th Overall honors in the NJSS show and we fell in love with this gilt as soon as we saw her. It may have taken a little more than we liked to own her but she is worth every cent. Sired by Rib Crib she is one we feel will generate desirable offspring that will go out and win. She will definitely make an impact around here and continue to head our Duroc program in the right direction.

Tadpole x Big Gulp
Bred By: Corya Family Showpigs

This Tadpole female was our $5,000 2012 IN State Fair purchase where she was easily named Champion of the Open Show. Prior to that she was name Reserve Champion Spot and 5th Overall Female at the Team Purebred Jr. Show in Springfield for the Trout Family. Out of the powerhouse Tadpole, that was lost way too early, and Corya's prolific Big Gulp sow makes this one the foundation spot sow that we were looking to add. We feel she will be just the right direction to start our spotted program.

Bullfrog x Texas Hold em
Bred By: Troy Lowdermilk

This is our $3,200 Indiana State Fair Open Show purchase from Troy Lowdermilk. We have gotten pretty fond of the spotted breed the last couple years and felt this is one that fit the mold of the spotted herd we are trying to put together. Being sired by our good Bullfrog boar and knowing how the Corya pedigreed genetics generates was just icing on the cake to bring this one home with us. She too will make spots better for us.

   

All You Want X Pi R Squared
Bred By: Larry White

We purchased this gilt at the Indiana State Fair, and thought
that she was a good addition to our Berkshire program. She
came from a great litter of hogs with a littermate gilt being
named Champion at the Summer Type Conference and Indiana
State Fair. We are excited about the future of this young sow!!

Alias 106-2 x Recovery
Bred By: Adam Beck Family Showpigs

This sow has stood the test of time here and continues to build her legacy on her own and thru her daughters in production here. She is one that has always does a knockout consistent job of producing consistent, high quality, sellable offspring. She is one that has definitely made an impact around here and will continue to do so for hopefully quite some time.

 

Alias x Monkey Breath
Bred By Tye Lettow
Words can’t describe how excited I am about this gilt. She is
out of one of the most powerful litters that I have seen in quite
sometime. She is a littermate to the $34,000 Alien Monkey and
Spunky Monkey both at Lean Value Sires. She is one powerful
female. When she comes at you she is so opened up you could
roll a bowling ball between her legs. She is monster boned and
huge hipped. She should have a dynamite litter being bred one
of the most proven boars in the industry, JLM Seven-Two.

Louisville Slugger x Totally Juiced
Bred By Brett Goff

Bred to Red Grange
(Gallery X Totally Juiced- the mother of this Duroc sow)
I purchased this gilt at the 2005 NSR Extravaganza. She
was the 3rd overall Duroc Gilt. At the first jackpot show of the
season in Indiana, she was Reserve Grand Champion Overall.
Due to an injury, this gilt was never shown again, but grew out
of the injury extremely well. Her littermates that Brett Goff
showed ended up being named 1st place boar at the
Summer Type Conference, while the other was
1st place boar at the Indiana State Fair.

   


Alias x Survivor
Bred By: Tye Lettow
What can I say, this sow has been the most
productive crossbred sows that we have ever
had!!! We currently have seven of her daughters
and one grand daughter in our sow herd. She
consistently produces hogs that are heavy muscled,
stout and very good on their feet and legs. Her pigs
look great as babies and grow out to be even better
mature hogs. 10-4 is a great one!!!

Animal House X Bone Collector
Bred By: Earl Cain and Family
Owned By: Adam Beck/ Mike Rawlinson

This is the foundation of our Hampshire operation!! We
purchased this sow as a bred gilt from Earl Cain and Family
for $4,000 at the World Class Bred Gilt sale!! She has really
set the tone for what we are trying to do with our Hampshires.
She is massive in her structure, really level in design and out through her hip. She is the best Hampshire sow that we have
ever had. Her offspring include the Reserve Champion Hamp
gilt at the 2008 NJSA Southeastern Regional and she is the
mother of our popular $12,000 Indiana State Fair entry Unreal
at Hi Point. We currently have four of her daughterís in our
operation that are making track records for themselves.
