Shaffer Goldrush Open House & Elite Gilt Sale 2013

Its that time of the year!  Shows are starting to wind down in the Midwest and thoughts are now being shifted to breeding for this Fall!  Such a fun and exciting time of the year as we all try to find that perfect match in hopes of raising Champions for the following year!

Every year we have the Shaffer Goldrush Boar Open House and Elite Gilt Sale!  This year it is being held on Saturday, August 24, 2013.  It is a day of fun for the entire family!  It is a great day to come out and view the boars that we have on stud, eat lunch and hopefully learn a few things along the way!

Schedule of Events

We start the day off with the A.I. Breeding Demonstation.  This has become a staple at our open house.  We will walk you through the steps of heat detection, proper breeding techniques along with semen storage.  We will have a live demonstration on a sow to be a visual for everyone.  Most of the time will be dedicated to questions.  Any questions that you have, this is a great time to ask!  We hope that this is a helpful for everyone whether this fall will be first time breeding or if you are a seasoned pro at it!

Next is Lunch!  We love food!!

We will be viewing approx. 45 of our Powerful Herdsired!  We will be parading old favorites along with our new purchases from this summer!  We try our best to show all of the boars that everyone wants to see, however we try to keep the viewing around 2 hours.  If you have any questions. please feel free to give us a call!
