Mulan is a purebred Meishan sow. She is the source for all our piglets, including replacement gilts for LVBA.
She exhibits all the traits you want in a breeding sow:

Hanz - Iowa Swabian Hall
Hanz is an Iowa Swabian Hall boar. He is our primary boar, and for good reason.

Our farrowing operation all started with 1 Meishan sow. Known for their gentle nature and good mothering skills, Meishans are a wonderful breed for a pasture raised operation.
