Bio: L&M Ranch is located in beautiful southern Colorado near the town of La Veta. We are a diversified farm with a focus on natural livestock husbandry and regenerative agricultural practices. We pasture and organically feed pork, beef and lamb and offer our exceptional meats for sale directly from our ranch, at farmers markets and online through our website. In addition to our two modern breeds of sheep Royal White and Texel, we raise 4 different heritage breeds, Large Black Hogs, Black Welsh Mountain and Shetland Sheep and Belted Galloway Cattle. We believe that by raising Heritage Breeds we are helping to ensure biodiversity in livestock genetics which is vitally important to the future of agriculture, and heritage breeds also are very well suited to small scale diversified farms.

Bio: I was reared on a Dairy and Grain farm in southern Illinois during the 50 & 60's. Couldn't wait to leave for college to get away from farming. Then the next 70 years, College, USAF Vietnam, College and then into business world as a corporate executive - working from New York to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Then, as the owner of our own company until 2013. Now I'm back to the life I ran from and so love today, Hay Farmer, Black Angus Cattle of the Connealy and SAV lines for replacement animals. We are now breeding Hybrid STEERS (Black Angus/Wagyu) for our Beef Meat Sales. We are raising Registered LBH from Triangle K, and Mt Crest Farms. Our main line of boars are SUPER and MALCOM . Our Sow lines are DAISY, PRUDENCE, CHARLOTTE . We are fortunate to have added to our herd of LBH, (1) Boar and (3) Gilts from THE CONSERVANCY/PURDUE project. In two years we will have some of the best REGISTERED LARGE BLACK available in the market place, with a low Inbreeding Coefficient by way of the introduction of new lines of LBH. Please see us to acquire your LBH for starting a herd or for low Inbreeding Coefficient to advance your present herd. From our Registered LARGE BLACK HOG and our Registered BERKSHIRE. We are happily creating the best of both worlds, a HYBRID - LBH/Berkshire cross - sold as feeders or grown out. We are lucky to have taken on our young business partner (Mr. & Mrs. Angus McGillis) who's life goals and family goals are the same as ours. Assisted by their (3) children, Ryan, 10 Silas, 8 and Maggie 6, (the real farmer in the family). "Special Thanks", to Randy @ Tuthill Farms for our Registered Berkshire and to Triangle K Ranch for breeding and providing access to the BEST LBH and especially to our special friend, the late Bob Hayles, of Mt. Crest Farm for introducing us to the LBH and being our mentor. He is missed and would be so happy with our growth and development in our Swine market endeavor.

Bio: Located in Central Southern Iowa we have been raising purebred Large Black Pigs since 2013. We are members of the British Pig Association and lifetime members of the LBHA. Our family maintains a stable and consistent meat market allowing us to be extremely selective in our breeding stock. The more meat we produce the happier our hungry customers are! Only animals that meet breed conformation are bred and 1-2 animals per litter are kept back as potential breeders for us or buyers. We currently have American stock and British/American stock available for sale. In 2016 we imported three female lines from Great Britain including Blackie, Constance, and Nocturne which we have been breeding with our American boars. Our female American lines include Charlotte, Grandeur, Matilda, Prudence, and Warbler. Our male American lines are Defender and Super. We sell proven boars, proven gilts (1 litter born and reared), proven sows (2 + litters reared), adolescent males for breeding, adolescent gilts for breeding, barrows, and weaned piglets (10 weeks and older) for breeding. We export internationally, have on farm quarantine facilities, and a dedicated veterinarian for all required tests. We can fly pigs at buyer's expense from six different Midwest Airports including Kansas City, Omaha, Des Moines, St. Louis, Chicago, and Minneapolis.

Bio: We have raised these amazing animals for over 11 years. Both my husband and I come from farming backgrounds and have raised the commercial type pig before as well. A couple of the most important relationships you should have when raising any food animal is opening a line of communication with your veterinarian, butcher and breeder. When starting out, find a mentor, not necessarily one who raises heritage breed animals, but someone of whom you can ask questions, share ideas. Do not overlook your elderly family member or neighbor who was a hog farmer "back in the day", he probably raised his hogs closer to what we are striving for than the large CAFOs. Do not discount everything the CAFO has to say either. They have the financing to pay for research which can be helpful to us as well. You would be surprised by listening, truly listening to the CAFO farmers. You may notice some of their worries just do not exist with a pasture based system, then again, they do not have neighbors or random strangers stopping at your door to say your pigs are out. We have 4 boars currently. Gilbert (MBR Majestic), Bismarck (Basel Defender:, Phillip (Purdue University Super-CA) and Ian (The Livestock Conservancy Malcolm). Our ladies is quite a list, Charlotte (Leaping Waters Charlotte who is 10 years old and just provided us with a litter of 7), Little Sister (Triangle K Charlotte), Sweet 16 (Triangle K Charlotte), Cecelia (Purdue University Charlotte), Wiilhemina (Dorothy's Warbler), Susie Q (Triangle K Warbler), Mad Maddie (H.M. Farm Matilda), Penelope (Bennett Prudence), 2 as yet to be named (The Livestock Conservancy Prudence x 2). I am considering another Matilda and a Daisy. We have been working with The Livestock Conservancy and Purdue University on a major frozen AI program that will have a huge impact on the Heritage breed world of swine. Never hesitate to ask questions, that is the only way any of us learn! Any questions, give us a holler.
