This daughter of JLM9 TCG Augusta 18-1, first won the Hampshire show before selling for $37,000 to Top Cut Genetics, Farmland, Ind., Jerry McLemore, Ninnekah, Okla., and Mike Watson, Mooresville, Ind. 

Undefeated in her Hampshire show career, she also garnered Champion Hampshire and Reserve Supreme Breeding Gilt honors at San Antonio Stock Show's junior show earlier this year.

Congratulations to Branden for presenting a female of this quality, and to Top Cut Genetics, Jerry McLemore and Mike Watson for investing in these elite genetics.

The Augusta daughter earned plenty of attention in the sale ring, selling for a record-setting $37,000.
