Butch Cassidy 2-1 is one exciting new Berkshire boar. We purchased him online as a young pig. He impressed us when he was young, but he has blown us away as a mature boar. This guy is tall-fronted, level-topped, heavily muscled with tremendous feet and legs. He motors with ease and a long stride. A visitor shared, “He is one of the best Berkshire boars I have seen all summer. He probably stands next to Power to Inspire at SGI.” Wow! What a huge compliment. We have confidence that Butch Cassidy will correct a couple needs in the Berkshire breed: (1) level-top line, and (2) long and correct hip and hing legs. Dam was littermate to the Grand Champion Barrow at the 2012 Houston Stock Show

There were a lot of boars at the summer type conference that offered a lot of different things, but there was no boar that offered as much width, depth and mass as the Neon Cowboy! This guy offers power from end to end, in a sound, stout made package. His massive top, and deep, thick hams balance out his wide open rib cage and deep, center body. Looking to make those Berkshire barrows, gilts and boars that light up the show ring? Neon Cowboy!.

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.

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.
