GUARANTEE

All sows listed as “bred” are guaranteed to be carrying a litter. All bred females we are offering in the Ladies of Our Legacy Sale have been ultrasounded and confirmed pregnant by Dr. Nell Moore. She will be doing a follow-up ultrasound on sale day and we will update the sale site with any new facts from her visit. All females that sell “open” are guaranteed to breed. Ottenwalter Show Pigs views the total purchase price of a bred female as 60% attributed to sow value and 40% to the litter value. Should a “bred” female not turn out to be bred, the buyer will be entitled to a 40% refund of the purchase price in addition to two doses of semen from any of our herd boars to get her bred back. Hauling fees are not our responsibility to refund. All boars are guaranteed to have acceptable semen quality and settle sows. They are not guaranteed to live breed. All purebreds are registered and pedigrees will only be transferred after the pedigree transfer request from on our website is filled out. https://www.ottenwaltershowpigs.com/pedigree-transfers/

SEMEN

ALL bred sows in this sale that sell for $5,000+ are eligible for two doses of semen from any of our herd boars for their next litter. Semen is subject to availability and limited to only our boars housed at Ottenwalter Show Pigs. **Buyer is responsible for semen shipping cost**. Additionally, all open sows will sell with two doses of semen from any of our boars currently on stud at Ottenwalter Show Pigs with the exception of Wed Locked, Rowdy Rebound, and BD 40-1. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs associated with semen, and semen is subject to availability.

CARE OF YOUR PURCHASES

Here at Ottenwalter Show Pigs, we always stand behind our product. Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding care/management of your new bred female. We STRONGLY URGE our customers to follow these guidelines: Administer estrumate 1cc IN THE NECK or lutalyse 2cc IN THE NECK the day before their listed due date to induce farrowing on their due date. All due dates listed are based upon 114 days following their first service. Put your gilt/sow in the farrowing crate 3-4 days before her due date and have a heat lamp or mat turned on on both sides of the crate starting three days before their due date. Feed Trans Rite Sow Ultra daily for three days prior to her due date. Have oxytocin on hand to use if needed during farrowing and only use after having checked that the birth canal is clear. Also have a bottle of lube available and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND having a “Pig & Lamb Puller” on hand which can be purchased from Nasco or PBS Animal Health for about $9. We use and recommend the Four Star Show Pig Vaccination Protocol. For more information or any questions, please contact us. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions you may have.
