Preview Days:

In an attempt to make everyone feel 100% WELCOME as well as ENCOURAGE those interested to come view our online sale offerings in person, we are now hosting on farm PREVIEW DAYS beginning the Saturday prior to each auction, and running each day through sale day.

Our indoor facility and viewing arena provide a comfortable environment to view our sale offerings no matter the weather. We will provide attendees with sale catalogs that have lots arranged by pen number.

Beginning at 9:00 AM central time EACH DAY we'll begin the preview of our sale offerings starting with Pen 1, and will continue viewing each pen in consecutive order. We should have time to run the set through our viewing arena twice. Visitors are also allowed into the barn to view the pigs in their pens before, after, or even during the preview.

Lunch will be provided for those interested.

If you plan to attend, NO APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY. However, a quick text or email letting us know you're coming would be appreciated.

For those unable to attend one of the preview days, you are still welcome at any point before the auction to come view the sale offerings by appointment. Please try to provide 24-48 hr Advanced Notice.

Anyone unable to come see our offerings in person, is of course welcome to text, email, or call with any questions.

Sincerely, Steve & Aaron Cobb

NEW FOR 2018 - CLASSIFICATION DESCRIPTION:
We have added a category for Classification to help those that have shows that Classify. It's not an exact science and we aren't professionals at knowing exactly what each show requires. We do know it's different at different shows. We will use a very conservative approach and if you see for example one we call Dark Cross that you know your show will Classify Hamp please feel free to buy accordingly.


NEW FOR 2018 - UNDERLINE COUNT / QUALITY SCORE:
We have added a category on the catalog to give buyers a better understanding of the underlines on females. We will list first the COUNT. Then will put the quality score on a 1-5 scale. The Count is simply number of nipples on each side. Quality Score is done on a 1-5 scoring system that considers the quality/size of nipples as well as spacing. A 1 score would be the poorest and what we would consider non-functional UNDERLINE and sold as market hog competition only. A 2 score would be questionable functionality and for sure one that would be trouble in commercial gilt show. A 3 score would be consider most likely functional and maybe with some judges okay in show ring yet potentially trouble with others. Both 4 and 5 scores would be excellent in terms functionality as well as quality would never be questioned in the show ring. We hope this is helpful to those looking for females. 
 

NEW FOR 2018 - SHORTENED DESCRIPTIONS:
We have decided to try something new and will be writing short comments for each lot/litter. Our goal is to cut down on the time spent writing lengthy descriptions and spend more of that time showing the offering to visitors as well as fielding phone calls, texts, and emails regarding more specific needs of our customers. We truly believe with this new concept we will do a better job of helping our customers on a more individual basis find the right lots to work for their needs and show date(s). **Please feel free to contact us via call, text, or email. **However, sale day communication is better handled thru text message. 

NEW FOR 2018 - KEYWORD SEARCH:
To further help customers find pigs for their specific needs, please utilize the keyword search located at the top of the auction page, right above lot 1. Here are some key things to consider when utilizing the search lots feature:

For Breeds and Breed Classification: Light Cross - Dark Cross - Yorkshire - Hampshire -Calico
