Description:: This trio belted barrows need HIGH CONSIDERATION FROM ALL!!! These barrows might not be the thickest or most massive or most powerful, but they have tremendous look and eye appeal and they are "trendy." They are tall fronted, neat and clean about their head and neck with great natural shape and definition! All you have to do with barrows like these is simply: FEED THEM!!! They will get better with every day on feed and every day of maturity!!! I like the ideal of getting these guys rolling and conditioned and fluffy and LOOK OUT ALL!!!

Description:: WE'RE WAY IN ON THIS BLUE DAPPLE BARROW!!! He's so much like the 256-6 painted up barrow!!! He's mega stout featured, and shapely while being still ultra well balanced and having great design! This barrow is freakishly tall at the point of the shoulder, and dead level thru his hip and rump! He has great flexibility and agility to his skeleton and feet and legs! We love the strength of pastern on this barrow and his littermates especially in combination with their width and dimension!!! Hard to make them like this!!!

Description:: We maybe have these misread (it honestly wouldn't be the first time, as this is really all a guessing game, educated guessing on these prospects is good way to put it). But, as WE READ THEM TODAY: THEY LOOK LIKE STUDS FOR SHOW BARROWS!!! They are extra heavy in their skeletons! They are extra bold in their top and upper rib shape, especially the 293-10, he's as massive there as any!!! They both have a great design and look about them from the side profile with the tall shouldered, extended front ends you want to see in show barrow prospects at this stage! They read as though they will continue to mass and power but also continue to stay very balanced, complete, and complete!

Description:: Again, you can see the top shape and upper rib shape that the Honky Tonk female brings to the table written all over this pair of belted barrows!!! This is the same sow that is the mother of the DWE Expo barrow!!! These barrows are massive end to end and extremely bold about their center rib! We think if you have a reasonable place to keep one and access to a pretty solid show diet... YOU or ANYONE else could be competitive with these 4 litter barrows!

He's super well designed and balanced to go with his extra stoutness and power thru his center body! This one would be a bunch of fun to just sit on and hold tight with him and see how good he could look in October even mid to late October this one doesn't scare me because he is built to feed that way!

He is awesomely square designed! You can see how square, and level and balanced this one his in his photo! You can see that he has BIG BONES and an extremely big, square, shapely loin edge!

She has the kind of balance and the kind of design you really want in one at this stage if you want a gilt that you can put feed in front of and watch her get better and better! She's extended out of her neck and she's long and level and square in her hip and rump structure! We think this girl can get very impressive as a show gilt, but would also have value as a sow prospect!

Now, keep in mind, I will like them plenty green and notch as powerful from a muscle standpoint as some! But, check out his bone work, the squareness about his skeleton, and how tall he is at the point of the shoulder! Love the head carriage and eye appeal this one brings to the table as well!!!

Description:: This pair of Bear 22 x Stick This barrows SHOULD HAVE MANY FRIENDS!!! And RIGHTFULLY SO!!! They are extremely heavy in their bone and super rugged in their overall appearance! They seem to be barrows with about IDEAL MATURITY PATTERNS!!! They are getting enough size, age, and maturity that they are starting to really shape up and look the part! There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE in one weight 35-50# and what we think those should look like and where they should be at in terms of maturity, and ones that have reached the 70+ lb. mark! They can't be green forever, at some point things have to start maturing... These 273's are DEAL ONE TRACK in our opinion! Both have freakish stout bone and still both have incredible look and attractiveness that will work in the show ring all day long!!!

LOOK OUT!!! Bear 22 back on one of the GREAT 95 litter Super Monsters! This barrow is special because of the tremendous structure he has! Absolutely mega stout, and yet still reads clean made and youthful! You CAN NOT build one any more square throughout! We love the rib shape of this guy and the true internal dimension that he expresses!!! You guys decide if he works for your show date and if he is your kind of not... BUT WE LOVE THIS ONE AND ONES MADE LIKE HIM WIN LOSE OR DRAW THIS WILL BE WHERE WE PUT OUR MONEY!!!

They are truly big big topped barrows! They have as much back shape as anything! Yet, even with the definition and shape of top they have, they don't round up anywhere in their muscle pattern! Both are extended fronted barrows, but stout skulled barrows! They have square hips and they are barrows that stay within themselves on both ends of their skeletons as far as squaring to the ground and not being too wide and rolling out at their hock.

He does some things as well as any! He offers us some outcross blood, but most important the same reason we like him as a potential boar is the same reason you should love him as a potential show barrow... HECK! HE'S JUST DARN GOOD! He's square as can be! He's tall fronted with a great look to him! He's level front to rear and balances up like one should!

They have tremendous shape of top and really good extension and look about them as well! The 236-2 gilt is the more "ready" more powerful one as of today! She'll be good one to run on the early jackpot circuit! The 236-6 has the same design and same shape in terms of definition, she's just a notch greener made and more raw about her skeleton! Both fed correctly and to a degree fed in opposite directions, could end up looking very similar and very competitive down the road!

Both of these barrows have that extra heavy structure and square build to their skeletons that we really love to see!!! 279-8 is super balanced and super square and comfortable on the move! 279-5 might be the most extreme one that offers some way out there look, he just needs to relax in his top line and blend everything together as he matures and develops down the road. But, we wouldn't be selling him if we didn't believe he was going to do that and get really good down the road. He might be worth a little risk.

They are HUGE in their forearms and blade systems! They are HUGE footed barrows! The intriguing thing about these three littermate barrows is that even though they are extra stout featured and as extreme in bone as you will see they still have great design and they balance up like great show barrows have to! We will actually probably end up scratching one of these powerhouse barrow prospects and leaving him in tact as a boar prospect! They read with the extra stoutness and generating power to potentially make a herd boar down the road! Yet, the separation on these three is so minor we haven't decided yet which of the three we need to keep!

Seems that barrows that have this extra stoutness, but don't give up anything when it comes to having show appeal and design like a show hog are always the barrows that tend to be the very most competitive under lots of different guys judging!

If we decide to go ahead and make him a barrow, it is only because WE THINK HE CAN WIN A STATE FAIR!!! This is incredible combination of power, stoutness, shape, squareness, and a very attractive look!!! He is ideal in her length of body and he read rugged and stout featured like a great one needs too, Yet at the same time he is extended up front and has show hog head carriage!!! WE ARE SIMPLY PUT: VERY HIGH ON 16-4!!!

Weight in lbs (as of 05.17.14): 42
Description:: This pair of 234's are going to need to be looked at hard! They offer some very unique and very good show hog and show ring characteristics! They both are heavy boned with big forearm and blade systems! They are good in terms of their rib shape and how everything blends together front to rear! Both are the right size in terms of their frame and length to be great market hogs, and yet either could still be put on feed to be commercial gilts and be very competitive in that setting! You can read their pictures and see some of the differences as well as the fact that one is blue and one is belted to determine where you want to put your bid!!! But, the truth is, you probably will not be wrong either way as we truly thing both have great value!

He is super shapely down his loin and he's explosive in his rib shape! He is a moderate barrow that will not get too long and he should feed along about ideally to make a tremendous jackpot and market barrow!

These handful of litters here we have to offer were made by collecting him at 5 months of age and trying to extend and make enough semen to cover 2 sows a week! So, this is just a the first sampling of what this DUDE can do!!! We love these 50's!!! ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM!!! There's a chance by sale day we will try to decide which one to try to keep around as boar prospect! These would actually be DOUBLE BRED BEARS!!! Maverick is a Creature 63-11 (Creature X Super Monster) on a Bear daughter! Took him and bred him back to a Bear daughter!!! We actually did a lot of that and couldn't be more thrilled with how these first few are looking!!! These belted barrows have INCREDIBLE HIP AND REAR LEGS IN THEM!!! They are tall fronted and square to the ground exactly how we want them all to, just that it's really hard to get that done as well as Maverick does it!!! We are hoping for find a great home in a Midwest state where the FOCUS and GOAL of the Summer is to WIN THE FAIR IN AUGUST!!! Because, with that mind set and work these kind of barrows will DO THEIR PART!!!

Yet, for the amount of power he has this barrow stays agile enough and correct enough on his feet and legs as he goes! Don't purchase this barrow with the plan to really push him extremely hard, he's not made to handle an extremely high rate of weight gain. He is one you can grow slow and show for a very long time and keep him right enough to win shows! Regardless when you plan to show him, this is a darn nice barrow to start with!

They read to us to have same kind of look and design and tremendously correct, balanced skeletons!!! If you like to have barrows on feed, and you do not like to sit on them and hold them... THEN CHECK OUT THESE GUYS!!! They are made right to push on and feed hard! Some barrow can not handle being pushed simply because they will not stay balanced, nor correct enough! These both read like they have the extension and ability to handle 2lb/day if not more towards the end!!! Here's a pair that both read with GREAT FEEDING POTENTIAL!!!

Description:: SAME MOTHER AS THE RESERVE GRAND OYE 2013!!! With the risk of sound arrogant instead of just simply proud as we are... I have to point out that it's not every other day that you find a sale listing where there are back to back lots out of sows that have produced winners at that level!!! We honestly do take great pride in our sow herd, as we believe you simply can not get there without great females! This Bear 22 barrow is a bit stringy and certainly not the widest and most moderate one in the line up... But, go back and study the pig photo of "Double B" (The Reserve Grand OYE) and tell me how you read him! It's called "maturity" and it's possibly the single most important thing that goes on in a show barrow and at the same time it can be the hardest thing to see and get figured out at this state! All I know to do is: TRUST THE SOWS!

Winning the Yorkshire Drive and possibly getting a piece of the deal at a Major State Fair event with a barrow out of her would simply just be a GREAT START to her generating ability!!! You can see the youth in these babies and can tell they haven't been off the nursery decks long at all, but the structure and the design is there!!!

Especially if they are this heavy boned, because typically structural flaws and joint issues and lack of athleticism comes along with it!!!

He has an absolutely incredible look and show appeal! He is heavy structured, and he has an AWESOME hip and rear leg! We also realize that this barrow is out of a very large litter of hogs and he did not get the highest preforming start and when you look at his littermates IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE HIM NOT GETTING MORE THAN PLENTY POWER!!!

Description:: Here's a Yorkshire barrow to make some notes on! His picture might not be the very best representation of him, but this barrow is heavy structured, square and has a really good hip and hind leg! He's got the length and frame work to be 270+ pounds and maintain balance! The mother of this barrow is a impressive sow that honestly looks like one you would call: A BARROW MAKER!

Breed/Sex: Crossbred Barrow
Sire: Maverick
Dam's Ear Notch: 92-9X
Sire of Dam: Super Monster
Weight in lbs (as of 04.12.14): 43
Description:: You better not overlook this black Maverick x Super Monster barrow! He is about the ideal size and maturity to be a barrow that feeds extra easy for you!!! He is stout featured, yet not coarse! He is shapely, yet still square! He is cock and attractive, but he still reads with some production! We would predict this barrow to be a super competitive 250-260 weight barrow by State Fair time! He could be one that continues to show into later August and even get into September with great fresh look!
