I was just wondering how many boars are currently at Deer Park? And their breeding etc? Thanks in advance.

Hi Rich,

We always have one boar working at Deer Park. The current boar is from the general line, a good fleshy boar line.

The last was from the Ben line and previous to that was Charles. We look to change the line every 18 months or so.

If you would like further information on the boar take a look at the link below or feel free contact me. All the best, Giles

Hi Aimee, thanks for the offer but I already have a Ben boar.
I was ideally wanting to introduce some new genetics without bringing any more pigs on. Cheers
