Our philosophy is to manage purebred hogs in a commercial setting. All hogs are fed well-fortified corn/soybean meal/premix rations. No Paylean is used.
The Red Hill herd is pseudorabies and brucellosis qualified free in the state of TN. This herd is free of PRRS and should meet the health requirements for shipment anywhere in the world. The sows are vaccinated for parvo, lepto and erysipelas. The pigs are vaccinated for erysipelas. This herd has never had TGE.
We believe in linebreeding to improve genetic consistency and predictability.
We value the reputation and integrity that we have continued to develop and maintain for over 30 years. As a result, many hogs are sold sight unseen to customers who have gained trust in our selection of breeding stock for them.
“The Red Hill Farms breeding and selection program has been and continues to be focused on the profitability and success of our customers.”
