Grand Champion Barrow Overall & Champion Crossbred
2017 Illinois State Fair

Shown by Bertolino Family 
  EN: 20-1 XB
Breed/Sex: Crossbred Barrow
Sire: Square Deal
Dam's Ear Notch: 84-1
Sire of Dam: Bear 84
Description:: These 20 litter barrows are sired by Square Deal, out of a tremendous Bear 84 daughter!!! These barrows bring a lot of structure and dimension to the table! They stay square and correct off both ends of their skeletons as well! We can get pretty high one barrow prospects that have this kind of real honest feature and structure!!! The 20-1 is a really bold ribbed, big backed one that has power blade to hip! Make sure to notice his crinkle ear. 20-3 is awesomely well balanced, yet still one that has extremely heavy bone work and really good dimension and feature! 20-5 is huge centered, big legged, and thick ended while still being correct and flexible in his skeletal structure! 20-6 can go play hard at any level! He's got the kind of stoutness it takes in combination with great eye appeal and balanced front to rear!

Sire: Phenom
Dam's Ear Notch: 240-1
Sire of Dam: Monster Square
Description:: This barrow offers a very heavy structured, square design, and an excellent skeleton! He's got the makings of one that will feed into something pretty special, not because he's the most extreme pig you will find, just because this barrow is put together RIGHT and just doesn't have structural flaws to have to deal with! Really good feeding look to this one!

Sire: High Country
Dam's Ear Notch: 366-4
Sire of Dam: The Prophet
Description:: Well, simply put: These barrows are for sale as barrows because of a mistake in the castrating process at the nursery! So, with that said, take advantage of a tremendous set of Yorkshire barrows that are out of the High Country boar from Swenson's and a really good Prophet female! These barrows are good pastern, with great height of shoulder, and great extension! There's a tremendous amount of good in this litter of livestock!!!

4th Overall Yorkshire Barrow
2017 World Pork Expo

Shown by Chloe Mabry 
  EN: 345-1 YB
Breed/Sex: Yorkshire Barrow
Sire: Pride
Dam's Ear Notch: 397-3
Sire of Dam: Hoge
Description:: We think you can start getting this one right and become a major threat in the purebred show at Expo! This guy has the age to allow him to have the maturity and feature to be right enough come early June to win! He's got a great look, while still being very rugged, and still yet square as they come!!! We love this one for Expo, he could be tough to manage to show much past mid June, but he can be as 12:00 as any for the BIG ONE!!! 
 
Champion Crossbred & Reserve Grand Overall
2017 Oklahoma State Fair


Shown by Maria Spurley 

 

 

EN: 210-1 XB
Breed/Sex: Crossbred Barrow
Sire: Square Deal
Dam's Ear Notch: 264-1
Sire of Dam: Bear 84
Description:: These 210's are another set of Square Deal barrows that are ABSOLUTELY ELITE!!! They combine so many traits of champion caliber barrows!!! They have immense shape and dimension, yet still within themselves and while maintaining great balance from end to end!!! These barrows are opened up thru their chest floor and incredibly bold about their rib cages!!! They are barrows that can cover ground, get out and go like they are suppose too, which is unique for the kind of true back shape and dimension they offer!!! We'd take our chances feeding any single one of these 210's!!!

Sire of Dam: Bear

Dam's Ear Notch: 277-3
Sire of Dam: Creature
Description:: WOW!!! This one sure looks the part!!! He's one that has all the dimension and power and boldness end to end you could ever hope for... Yet, he doesn't read round or quick about his maturity!!! He actually still reads very immature and youthful about his maturity!!! This one can feed and turn into a MONSTER of the show ring!!!

Shown by Gary-Nelson Barger
  EN: 22-2 XB
Breed/Sex: Crossbred Barrow
Sire: Phenom
Dam's Ear Notch: 219-4
Sire of Dam: Beyond
Description:: One of the truly stout featured barrows we are offering with tremendous real shape and dimension!!! These kind are hard to get around on show day when they are 12:00!!! Some might show up with one that's cuter headed, but it sure puts a lot of pressure on the judge in the ring to beat MAN-LIKE barrows that show up like 22-2 with a cute one, just not going to happen very often!!! We still read this one to have some real show appeal when it comes to head carriage and overall design and balance!  
 
Many-Time Grand or Reserve Grand Gilt
2017 Iowa Jackpot Show Circuit

Shown by the Pierce Woodruff
Sold to Ottenwalter for $8000 at the Crossbred Classic
  EN: 254-5 XG
Breed/Sex: Crossbred Gilt
Sire: On Target
Dam's Ear Notch: 93-2
Sire of Dam: Bear 84
Description:: A guy can't help but really like the great eye appeal and look of these girls! They are shapely, moderate, heavy structured females that still off some length of neck and femininity. We think these should be killer jackpot gilts and they would be really good market gilts if shown with enough age to allow they time to get big enough. We'd originally thought with enough time and age you could make tremendous commercial show gilts with all three of these gilts, with a little more evaluation we've realized all three of these gilts are short underlined. So, certainly take that into consideration when buying one of these.

Breed/Sex: Crossbred Barrow
Sire: Square Deal
Dam's Ear Notch: 269-7
Sire of Dam: On Target
Description:: These guys should have multiple friends on sale day!!! When they are built with this kind of feature and balance and look all in combination… THEY CAN BE NEXT TO UNBEATABLE!!! Not only way cool from the side as you can well see, but mega bold, dimensional, and expressive when you get up on the topside of the skeleton!!! We read both these to have to added degree of bone work and overall feature in their appearance, yet still have the correct sort of maturity pattern and exhibit some youthfulness as well!!! Really Like What We See Here!!!

Just an awesome kind of look about them to go with great design and balance end to end!!! These gilts all exhibit extension and height at the point of the shoulder with tremendous shape and expression right out of the top of their blade into their loins!!! There's just not much about these Bear 274 females not to like!!! THEY CAN DO IT ALL!!!

2017 Florida State Fair

Shown by Lyndsee Phillips
  EN: 96-9 XB
Breed/Sex: Crossbred Barrow
Sire: On Target
Dam's Ear Notch: 26-2
Sire of Dam: Bear 22
Description:: WHAT A FANTASTIC LITTER OF GREAT PROSPECTS!!! We absolutely love the stoutness of feature and just real, honest, true heaviness of structure we read in this litter of On Target barrows!!! They've been impressive at every stage! Great at birth! Incredible at weaning! Looked special on the decks when sorting this sale set! They are still fun to study and debate as individuals as they come out of the pen into the viewing area in the sale barn! If you like them with shape and dimension, while still having the right kind of balance and good skeletal design... THESE ON TARGET'S BACK ON A B22 DAUGHTER SHOULD FIT TO A TEE!!!
 
Reserve Champion Heavyweight Hampshire
2017 San Antonio Stock Show

Shown by Molly Boswell
  EN: 95-6 XB
Breed/Sex: Crossbred Barrow
Sire: On Target
Dam's Ear Notch: 249-6
Sire of Dam: Bear 84
Description:: These On Target barrows read with a later kind of maturity pattern, and some will assume that means they just not very good... But, sometimes the best ones are the ones that have this kind of maturity and are still sound and square on show day while the early maturing ones have crashed and burned! They're not going to win jackpots every weekend, but with this structure and design and the kind of look they have, it's easy to see why and how one of these 95's could be hard to beat once it all comes together!

Description:: Tremendous litter of barrows here that really look like great feeding hogs!!! These barrows are built right from the ground up with a great muscle and maturity pattern to truly feed out into barrows that grow and get better for you!!! They are good footed, have great barrow bone that isn't way out there or too round and coarse yet plenty to give them a stout enough kind of appearance!!! We read these barrows as somewhat fault-free and still having enough of the "extras" to be contenders to win shows down the road!!!
