Revival is out of a sow that was the result of a frozen semen mating. Rolex was the cornerstone of Mauck’s foundation Berkshire genetics. This reach-back mating to a key Gary Coleman sow is the bottom side of this pedigree. Revival combines the correct design of the Rolex x Gary Coleman sow with a powerful and tall-fronted Bottoms Up boar. Revival is correctly designed on his feet and legs. He has heavy bone, massive rib, and a big top. This guy is really cool and he has a pedigree that is built for Berkshire breeders. We brought this boar home because we feel he has unique value to making the next generation of stout Berkshire females. You won’t find this pedigree anywhere else. Look in here!

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.” Neil Mauck described him as “one of the heaviest boned Berks he has seen. He’s not just level, he runs uphill.” Walter 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.

Tuff-E-Nuff is out of the last semen collection from Ready To Rumble. He is wide-chested with a cool extended head and neck. He is tall-fronted with a wide and level top. This guy is extremely good in his look, design and profile. He has correct wide-spread toes, good bone, and extremely flexible in his reach off his rear legs. This guy was not fed any show feed or Paylean. He was also running fence side with some gilts. He is a really good Hereford boar and we are excited to put this rugged-made Ready to Rumble son to work. We brought him home and he busted out of his pen because he wanted to get some action. Is he good enough? No he is Tuff-E-Nuff!

A Berkshire boar with great chest width is hard to find, but a Berkshire boar with great chest width and true rib shape is even harder to find and Manny does that so well! More moderate in his build, we like Manny as a great option for those prettier made females that need some mass and power! We invested in Manny because his mother is a Dropout daughter, which is a Time Bandit son that is similar genetics to our boar Walter.

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!

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

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.
