Bred by: Dan Burzlaff

Sire: Creature (Lift Off x Cadillac)

Dam’s Sire: Monopoly (Non-Typical x Bar None)

DOB: 8/2/17

Registration: 148072001

December, 2017 was really cold, and it took it’s toll on our herd boar, Danger Zone. After finding DZ as cold as the temperatures, we began searching for a replacement that would follow in Danger Zone’s footsteps. Although the Facebook live video was blurry, we took our chances on Burzlaff’s SWTC entry that he showed in Belton in 2018. Once we rolled him off the trailer, it was obvious that we found “the guy” that would fit the bill and occupy Danger Zone’s pen. The Director is stout, massive, correctly designed, loose-spined, and tall fronted. The Director is active with tremendous mobility, locomotion and athleticism. We believe The Director can make larger outlined barrows and correctly designed gilts. He has a tremendous mother–she was the high-selling and Reserve Champion Berkshire Gilt at the 2017 SWTC. She was also littermate to the high-selling and Champion Berkshire Boar (Stand Alone @ Conovers). The Director is ready to make things happen! Are you?

Sire: Speak Now

Dam’s Sire: Double Barrell x Crusader x King Indy

DOB: 12/16/16

Registration: 144593008

Speechless was the best boar prospect in a deep litter of 11 pigs. Rhett and Maverick said this was quite easily the most consistent litter they have ever raised, and represent some of their very best to date! They sold 9 pigs out of this litter in the Spring of 2017 for $5930. Speak Now made a huge statement in 2016, and complemented this Double Barrel x Crusader x King Indy sow really well. This guy is a complete fault-free boar. He is awesome look and design with his heavy bone, jet-level square top, impeccable hip and set to hind legs, and very sound. He is a stylish looking, choke-necked, high head carriage boar. Love his look! We have received numerous calls / texts about this guy. We are excited to have him here in stud.

Sire was Champion Berkshire Boar of the 2015 Indiana State Fair and generated Keep Talkin’ ($60,000 Champion Berksire Boar at the 2016 STC, Austin Lane’s $22,000 2016 Champion STC Gilt, Juice It (purchased by Shipley), and 2016 NBS Berkshire Hog College Gilt

Keep Talkin’ 12-1 is the new hottest boar in the Berkshire breed. This guy is extremely correct in his design and will produce stylish Berkshires. The mother of the Keep Talkin’ 120-1 was Knauth’s $11,500 purchase from Mauck Show Hogs at the 2016 STC where she was named Reserve Champion Berkshire Gilt. Her first two litters were sired by Keep Talkin’ and they produced the following winners: Reserve Grand Champion Gilt 2017 Ohio State Fair Jr. Show, Class Winning Berkshire Gilt 2017 TP Jr. Nationals and Indiana State Fair Jr. Show, Reserve Champion Berkshire Gilt 2017 STC & $9,000 Class Winning Berkshire Boar 2017 Fall Classic.

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.
