Award Winning Auctioneer + Award Winning Sow Operation = Outstanding Farm Sale

 

Yuma, AZ - Making dreams come true, Git-R-Done Showpigs is a 25-sow operation out of Yuma, Arizona ran by Jeannie and son Justin Gorman. The operation started with Kliff purchasing five females from an Ottenwalter online sale. Who’d have known that midnight exchange on the side of the road in Buckeye, Arizona would multiply five times in a few short years. Justin, age 26, came back to home to Yuma a few months later. He fed and raised his first boar, Manifest, who sold at WPX 2014 for $6,500. This trip led his networking among the most respected breeders in the industry. Every new relationship and conversation about pigs fueled his passion. 

In the late-’80s, we had a small operation with a few sows and would order semen from Hi Point. Twenty-some years later, here we are again. It’s been great rekindling the relationship with these guys. It’s great being able to call them up and ask “Hey what do you think?” They’ve got good prices for top-quality genetics and guarantee their product, which is important for programs like ours. In December 2015, we farrowed three litters sired by It’s All Good. From mid- February to April, we’ve been on a run with It’s All Good, and our customers have earned seven banners. 

In our program, we focus on building them right from the ground up. Our involvement doesn’t stop at the bill of sale. Justin spends countless hours working with his customers on feed programs, grooming and showmanship. He has established customers in Georgia, Texas, California, Oklahoma and Arizona. We believe good pigs are bought. Champions are made.

This Winter Ramirez Auction Service Inc. and Git-R-Done Showpigs are teaming up for the Driven by Heart Farm Sale on December 10th in Yuma, Az at 5387 E. 45th.  Preview is at 11:30am, Lunch at 1:00pm and the live Auction starts at 2:00pm. Stay tuned on Facebook for all the latest!

Comments From Our Clients

  • Paul Ramirez was our auctioneer for the Tucson Wildlife Center "Rejoice Dinner" fund raiser in Jan 2012. We were very fortunate to have Paul as he significantly increased our auction proceeds far above expectations. He is a very creative auctioneer and suggested several unique ways to present our candidate offerings. Paul is engaging and knows how to motivate potential bidders. His enthusiasm and humor energizes the audience. Because of Paul's excellent presentation of our auction items we believe we achieved about three times the revenue that we had anticipated. All of the attendees enjoyed the auction as the highlight of the evening. We were so pleased that we have scheduled Paul again for our 2013 event.
    M. Lisa Bates, MS, Executive Director, Tucson Wildlife Center, Inc.

  • Paul Ramirez and the Charity Auction Team are TROT's "secret weapon" when it comes to our event fundraising efforts! Paul's professional expertise, his auction style, and his rapport with the crowd are a perfect fit for our organization - his auctions are fun and produce fabulous results for our charity. Paul knows his business and willingly shares ideas to help us maximize the proceeds from our events. Many children with special needs from the Tucson community have directly benefited from the funds raised by Ramirez Auction Services and we are grateful for their supportive, professional assistance. I highly recommend the Ramirez Auction Services to any nonprofit organization that wants a good outcome at their events!
    Leslie Esselburn, Executive Director Therapeutic Riding of Tucson (TROT)

  • Paul has been auctioneer several times when I have donated a large original painting to a charity event. No one does a better job auctioning my work then he does. Paul does his homework, knows his audience, has good knowledge of the items he's auctioning, and says just the right thing to elicit the highest bid. I am always thrilled when I see he is the auctioneer.
    Diana Madaras, Madaras Gallery
