Tom Conover has been putting Berkshire hogs together for many generations
and he knows how to get the job done. He made another good one here. Check out his pedigree and see if he can't work for you. We think his
picture shows him pretty true.
Timepiece 12-2 Farrowed

Bred by: NIBS
Rolex 3-6 /Damís Sire: COR9
The mother of Timepiece 12-2 is also the mother of our Hog College boar.
She has proven to be an outstanding producing sow. The sire Rolex 3-6
injured a hind leg when he was quite young and we are very happy to have bred
this good sow to him before he was removed from the stud. There are a lot
of good old time genetics in this pedigree. Timepiece is a very good boar
and the kind that is designed to be able to bred sows in a breeding pen if

Sire: /KSWV1 Dream Scheme 9-12Damís Sire:
COR9 Happy 3-9
We were very honored to have Ramses 10-7 selected as the 2013 Hog College
boar at the National Barrow Show. Son Bob raised him and we followed his
development from day 1. He is a true fast growing Berkshire boar and
having sold many vials of Berkshire semen over the past 17 years we know
the value of growth in the Berkshire breed. His mother although a young sow
is a tremendous brood sow and her daddy Happy 3-9 was something special. He
was a BIG heavy boned Berkshire sire from Arlie Cornbrower's herd in PA.
His sire Dream Scheme 9-12 has been at NIBS for the past year and has sired
many very popular offspring. Semen flow and quality looked very good on 1st
collection. We are happy that Ramses is back where he can help make
Berkshire sired pigs grow faster.

very good commercial Berk semen trade over the past 10 years and we knew we
needed to make a son from Timex and Happy, to here they are and are we
