Dam’s Sire: Making History
This boy is extremely good. He puts together a balanced package that can be challenging to find in Berks. Adam Conover said, “I would definitely use that boar.” He is extremely correct, big bone, tall fronted, moderate frame, square, wide, super flexible, big wide-spread blades, long rump, and attractive muscle shape. According to his namesake, “…and that’s the way it is” (Walter Cronkite).
Randy Shipley described King Indy as “the most unique Berkshire boar he has seen. Big feet, spread toes, big bone, square, sound, flexible, tremendous reach and drive, wide spread shoulder blades, big top, massive center body. This guy is like a crossbred.” Why talk about King Indy? Because these features describe his dad–Walter.

Wheels Up 1-9 is a new genetic cross for the Berkshire breed. We appreciate the power and stoutness he delivers in a STYLISH and SLEEK DESIGNED profile. This guy is tall-fronted, bold-bladed and high in his head carriage coming at you. He is square on his big boned feet and legs. He is so good in his bone work and has tremendous stride length. We love the look of this guy going away from you. This guy has us excited as he is the first litter out of a Mount-N-Do x Who Knows What sow from Russell Kneese. She had 13 live pigs in her first litter. Combine her with King Indy and this guy could generate some stylish females with excellent feet and legs.
