We are very exited to introduce our new Hereford boar:
The Hit King
















Big Red Machine x Convoy
Bred and Owned by Bona Vista Farm
Semen available $100 a dose

I have had the privilege to see most of the good Hereford boars around the country shown this summer at the CPS summer type conference, the Ohio State Fair, and the Indiana state fair, and in my opinion and many others who have came to our house and looked at our boars I think we have one of the best in the country. THE HIT KING is flat good, I don't think anyone has put one together with more positives than he has to offer. It took a whole lot of persuading to get Don and Todd to even offer semen to be sold on this guy. We think BIG RED MACHINE did a great job his first year, but we think HIT KING will do even more. He moves around with the best set of legs of any boar we've ever raised. He still is super blown open over his top and walks wide going away. The most exiting thing about this guy for me is that he is out of a GREAT sow. His dam has produced: the Champion Hereford gilt 2014 OSF, Champion gilt 2014 national Hereford show, Champion Hereford barrow 2013 OSF, Reserve Champion Hereford barrow 2013 ISF, and Reserve Champion Hereford junior gilt 2015 ISF open show. We think THE HIT KING will make great show barrows and gilts along with great future sows that will generate!

When we saw this Hereford boar walk in the ring for the champion drive we knew this one was special. This is a boar that will made a tremendous impact on the Hereford breed. This very well could be the best barrow making boar to ever hit the breed. He is extremely heavy boned, great on his toes and pasterns, and walks perfectly square off both ends while still being opened up down the top and wide walking away. This is a boar that would work great on those unsound, poor made hogs that need to be better structured and stronger on there pasterns. This guy needs heavy use and will see a lot of sows here at Bona Vista. Semen $75 per dose.


For Reference Only
Time Tested is heavy boned, wide made, and still gets around with ease. 
Test of Time x Convoy

Magic Ride came from a great litter. Consisting of two boars placed in boar studs. He himself is heavy muscled and
  is great on his feet and legs, and one of  the heaviest boned Herefords you will ever find.

Rumor Mill is the youngest of our new boars. He is the heaviest muscled best designed boar of the three. Semen Available.


Test of Time - Our purchase from Doug Loof, Iowa. He is a littermate to Rusty Gold at Laird Premium Blend Genetics. He is a Sycamore on a Yellow Dog.

 Rumor Has It - He is a double-bred Convoy raised and owned by Holly's Herefords. If you want a massive, rugged Hereford boar, Rumor Has It is the boar for you.
