Date of Birth: November 5, 2015

Bred by: Rourke Sisters, Iowa

Registration: 137711002

Owned by: Knobloch Family Berks & Joshua Gregory (NE)

Danger Zone (Top Gun x Dropout) was the popular 1st in Class 4 boar we purchased from the Rourke Sisters at the 2016 World Pork Expo. This fault-free Berkshire has authentic power and correct bonework. Al Schminke called him a truck coming at you with a lot of product, shape and performance. He has tremendous width and dimension from the center of his blade and rump with a massive back and center body. We have confidence he will add more elevation and grow power in Berkshires.

Sire: Black Out

Dam’s Sire: Mr. Berky x Shotgun Wedding

DOB: 12/2/2016

Registration: 142737006

We bought this boar prospect from Armstrong Genetics for four reasons: (1) his pedigree; (2) his phenotype; (3) early reports that Black Out is generating; and, (4) the integrity of his owner. The is a son out of the Black Out boar that Armstrong purchased from Heimer. Black Out’s dam was a littermate to the champion Berk Barrow at 2015 Buckle (TX). Black Out is nearly a full brother to Back Home standing at Mauck’s–Black Out’s and Back Home’s dam were littermates and were both bred to NonTypical.

Dam’s littermate was Champion both days at The Buckle (TX)

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

DOB: 12/16/16

Registration: 144593008

1-8 was the best boar prospect in a deep litter of 11 pigs. Rhett and Maverick said this was quite easily the most consistent litter we 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

Dam Shelly 5-11 was raised by Shipley & Snyder and sold at the 2016 WPX for $1,900

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.

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

Co-owned: Fly’n K Berks & Knobloch Family Berks

Semen Available: Call Sioux Center Swine AI Boar Stud at (712) 441-4408

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.

2nd in Class 1 & 2nd highest selling Berkshire boar at the 2014 World Pork Expo
