What a find for Breeder’s Choice! Our $2500 private treaty purchase form Dustin Shuffler in Texas adds to the Poland boar power we already have on stud here at Breeder’s Choice. Dustin Shuffler had contacted us about Sledgehammer when he was about 150 pounds and at that point we already knew he had great potential. After much discussion and several pictures we agreed to purchase him ahead of Duncan.

This negative son of Kankles is a true powerhouse! His design, build and structure are phenomenal! He is three dimensional, busted open coming & going, deep sided with a big bold rib, tremendous shape of top, rump and hams with tremendous bone, depth, rib, structure and foot size. Littermate He travels square and true on the corners and is as mobile and sound as they come. His littermate sister was grand Poland Gilt at the State Fair of Texas.

Knock out the competition with a Sledgehammer - an outstanding young Poland Sire that we think has as much potential to sire great Poland show pigs and breeding stock as any we have had before!
