Berkshire Semen Available
"Greater Than"
Nontypical X Who Made Who X Superman
Stress Negative Berkshire Boar
$50 / dose 
Overrun Available after 11 a.m. CST at Half Price

When analyzing pedigree alone, this guy is impressive as he's out of NONTYPICAL at Mauck Showhogs and his dam was the 2014 Grand Champion at the Houston Stock Show. Phenotypically, this guy is an absolute stud!!! Here's a big footed, stout featured boar who's not only bold through his center skeleton, but extremely shapely down his top and stout out of his hip.  GREATER THAN doesn't sacrifice skeletal quality as he is elevated off of his pasterns, attractive profiling,, and is as sound as a cat. Breed with confidence to add both upper and lower rib shape, width of pin set, bone and soundness. Additionally, his semen quality has been excellent thus far!!!  

His siblings had quite a year this year as well,, MPA Reserve Points Berkshire Gilt, Reserve FFA gilt at MO State Fair, 2 time grand berkshire gilt on MPA Circuit, 5 time Reserve berkshire gilt on MPA Circuit, and 2 time Reserve berkshire barrow on MPA Jackpot.

UPDATE:  Greater Than just sired the Grand Champion FFA & Open Berkshire Gilt at the Missouri State Fair, Grand Berkshire at NE Missouri Expo, Reserve Grand Berkshire at NE Missouri Expo, & Reserve Champion Purbred Market Hog at Monroe County, IL.    

Special thanks to Murray Showpigs for housing this guy!!!
