Bred by: Knobloch Family Berks

Owned by: Knobloch Family Berks

Sire: RU Serious

Dam’s Sire: Neon Cowboy

DOB: 1/10/17

Registration: 143009003

TRENDY LOOK & DESIGN * MASSIVE TOP * TREMENDOUS REACH & FLEXIBILITY

This gilt can really roll with althleticism of Usain Bolt. She is extremely flexible, loose spined, and motors freely on all four wheels. She is tall-fronted and explodes out of her blade into a wide cage and big top. She has a high tail setting with a big hip. She is taller with a bit more frame, but she fills her frame with lots of goods and power. We are excited about the future of this breed with females made right like 28-5.

Registration: 141634003

MASSIVE TOP & RIB * WIDE-BASED * EXCELLENT FEET & LEGS

This gilt has always been powerful and she is very impressive when you see her in person. Grant came home from Purdue and saw this one standing in the sow lot. He immediately said, “I like her!” She looks like a barrow-making machine. Stout skull and wide bladed with a massive chest floor coming at you. She has massive bone and is impeccable in her structure and toes. She is the widest, thickest and most massive females we have generated. This gilt was retained with one purpose in mind–make them show barrows! Take a look at her pedigree–a combination of two partnership boars with Lean Value Sires. Who knows…maybe Rusty might put a son out of this one in stud?!?

MASSIVE TOP & RIB * WIDE-BASED * EXCELLENT FEET & LEGS

What goes around…comes around. We sold Miss Magic 17-7’s dam to Ryan Mast and she has been a good sow–generated the 2014 Berkshire Hog College Boar. Viper really worked great on this HoneyBadger x Gary Coleman female. She is super stout in her bonework, and she is massive in her blade, top, and hip. This girl is freaky wide and square. We immediately fell in love with this girl and we have high hopes she will generate. We appreciate her unique pedigree (Viper / Venom x Justify x HoneyBadger / Gary Coleman x Gary Coleman). Sweet…as honey!

Sire: Walter

Dam’s Sire: Venom

DOB: 8/21/2016

Registration: 142100001

WIDE-CHEST * BIG RIB & CENTER BODY * EXCELLENT STRUCTURE

This litter 18 gilt is an amazing Walter daughter out of one of our most profitable Berkshire sows. Let us remind you that Walter is one of best meat quality boars of all Berkshire boars that were tested in the progeny tests. Out of 363 Berkshire boars tested, Walter is in the top 20% on 6 out of 7 meat quality traits (Minolta EPD = top 5%; pH EPD = top 15%; CLoss EPD = top 9%; Instron EPD = top 20%; Juiciness EPD = top 15%; Tenderness EPD = top 4%). Phenotypically, this gilt is tall-fronted, wide-based, correct structured, heavy-boned, big topped and level in her spine. This is the type and kind of Berkshires we strive to generate–competitive in the show ring, maternally productive in raising pigs, and the best tasting pork one could experience. This pedigree represents being tried and true to a breeding program that is highly attractive without chasing mirages and trends.
