In livestock, “Lines” are created when breeders utilize linebreeding to create a
line/herd of animals that are interrelated and have special features that are
consistently better than the typical animals found in a breed.  A “line” is a breed
within a breed.   This only works if the breeder has a very specific documented list
of features that they are selecting towards, generation after generation.

The Cascade Line of American Guinea Hogs started with the best available genetics
and has spent 14 years blending and refining those genetics to create one of the
few current true lines in the American Guinea Hog breed.  

The Cascade Line of American Guinea Hogs is famous for these features:

  • Super friendly A+ behavior
  • Good sized frames
  • Free of all known genetic diseases
  • Thick, meaty builds
  • Nice udders and teats
  • Milky genetics (to raise strong piglets
  • Excellently marbled pork
  • Super hardy
  • Natural parasite resistance.
  • Natural disease resistance
  • Long productive lives
  • Good mothering
  • Problem free
  • Easy on pastures- minimal rooting
  • Strong and correct legs and feet
  • No castration needed - No taint
  • Good grazers

Cascade Meadows Farm was instrumental in rescuing American Guinea Hogs from
near extinction  and in establishing the AGHA breed registry.  The Cascade Line
was developed by starting in 2005 with excellent stock from some of best
remaining American Guinea Hogs in existence .  We blended those genetics
together, extracting the best of the best to develop our own lines.  Over many
generations, we selected toward hogs that meet our demanding standards of
excellence.

The Cascade American Guinea Hog Herd typically consists of between 50-150
individuals depending on time of year..  We are a closed herd which allows us to
stay focused on the excellent traits we have developed, and keeps out genetic
problems and disease.
