Swine Genetics


Over 40 years, Russ Kremer has been deploying the genetics of his hog herd, starting with heirloom breeds and bringing back traits required for hogs to thrive in natural conditions. He has spent years purifying the breed to produce hogs that hold unique traits for their durability, survivability, and pork quality and taste. In fact, his pork has been scored number one for three years running, in the well-known Niman Ranch specialist pork quality testing. (Niman Ranch’s all-natural pork comes from humanely raised hogs on small independent family farms committed to sustainable farming.)

Palindromes’ interest in this company is to ensure it retains the rights to the genetic breeding – the germplasm and semen – of this breed, known in the industry as Wildwood Farm hogs.
