BERKSHIRE

RWO5 Smooth Mover 6-2  Farrowed  1/28/15  Reg. #  132091002
Bred by:  Saratoga Show Pigs
Sire:
 NF2 Hostile Takeover 21-1/Damís Sire:  KSWV1 Dream Scheme 9-12
Smooth Mover 6-2 was 2nd in class at the 2015 Ia. St. Fair and was a favorite of Al Christians. 6-2's littermate went on to be res champion boar at Mn. St. Fair. His mother is a littlermate to Ramsus 10-7, the 2013 NBS hog college boar that is here at NIBS. His sire Hostile Takeover was a Super Sire that stood at Top Cut and has sired many outstanding offspring. 

RWO4 Big Dream 4-2  Farrowed  2/28/14  Reg. #  125611002
Bred by: Saratoga Berks 
Sire:
 AUST8 Fast Lane 3-7/Damís Sire:   KSWV1 Dream Scheme 9-12
Son of the old Fast Lane 3-7. Mother is litter mate to Ramsus 10-7 (2013 NBS hog college boar). Litter mate boar to Big Dream was Champion Berk 2014 MN St. Fair and litter mate gilt was res. Champion female. Very good sow productivity behind this boar and he is a very high quality and volume semen producer.

NIBS3 Timepiece 12-2 Farrowed  8/22/13  Reg. #  122016002
Bred by: NIBS 
Sire:   NIBS2 Rolex 3-6  /Damís Sire:  COR9 Happy  3-9
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 need be.

  AJC 2 Power Up 5-2   Farrowed  2/8/12  Reg. # 112500002
Bred by:  AJC Berks
Owned †by;  Forkner True Line Genetics
Sire:  MLS1 Power Up 12-9 /Damís Sire: REED7 Sherman 1-1
Power Up 5-3 is a very well balanced, super sound and correctly muscled Berk boar. If nothing more let the picture of his mother speak. Very good semen quality.

HBCB8 AJC Hustle Belle 10-7  (Mother of AJC Power Up 5-2)

AJC5 Uncommon 10-3  Farrowed  3/13/15  Reg. #  132485003
Bred by: Adam Jay Conover 
Sire:  AIPK4 Uncommon 18-1/Damís Sire: KSWV1 Dream Scheme
Everett Forkner picked this boar out at 2015 NBS. Very heavy boned and sound structured Berk boar.  After seeing him develop over the past 6 months we felt he needed to stay around for awhile. 

MJF5 Big Mike 2-1 Farrowed  2/15/15  Reg. #  130906001
Bred by: Michael Freund
Sire:   LSF3 Dead Man Walking 7-6 /Damís Sire:  BSF1 Back In Black 20-1
We thought Big Mike 2-1 offered the best performance package of all the Berk boars at the NBS last fall. His WDA was best of any boar there and after 9 months here at NIBS we can see those figures were right on. He will make pigs grow and be sound all around. 

RWO5 Smooth Takeoff 6-8 Farrowed  1/28/15  Reg. #  132091008
Bred by: Saratoga Show Pigs 
Sire:   NF Hostile Takeover 21-1/Damís Sire:  KSWV1 Dream Scheme 9-12
We couldn't be much happier then we are with the 3 Hostile Takeover sons that Bob raised for us. Even though each is a little different in kind they are all very sound, docile and fertile boars with excellent growth and maternal traits.
