Our IPP Breeding Boar
Samson is a Gorgeous Ginger/Black boar we were lucky to get from Peaceful Pastures Farm in Shelton, WA. He is a fantastically built boar with a great body and nice wide face with a short upturned nose. He has had some wonderful litters on the farm and we look forward to seeing his future litters.
Idaho Pasture Pig Breeding Boar Info
One of the benefits of this breed is their smaller mature size. Ideally, boars should mature out at 350-400 pounds. The IPP is a medium sized breed of pig that was developed in 2006 with ongoing selection to breed to the stated ideal standards. We are very particular about our breeding stock, and the boars are carefully selected for our customers. A few of the characteristics that we look for when culling is the head, snout and body confirmation. They should have a short to medium length snout with an upturn or dish on the end to allow grazing and discourage rooting. The boars will have broad and pronounced shoulders, and will normally develop a shield at about 2 years of age. We also make sure the boars have well positioned testicles. We will do our best to get you a registered, high quality breeding stock IPP that exceeds or conforms to that of the posted breed standard.
All pigs require lysine that is found in grains, so IPPs are unable to be 100 percent grass-fed. But they can be primarily grass-fed. Only 10 to 20 percent of their diet needs to consist of grains and minerals. It’s essential for the minerals to be mixed properly into the feed. Due to their toxicity to salt, Idaho Pasture Pigs are unable to be fed free-choice minerals or mineral blocks. A mineral deficiency will result in the pigs digging in the ground to locate additional minerals instead of grazing the ground properly. The keys to a happy, healthy grazing pig include minerals; water; grass, hay and fodder; shelter; and, of course, a nice wallow!
