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 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: 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!

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!!!

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!!!

  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.

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!!!

They have the kind of extension and elevation in combination with shape and structure it takes to GO PLAY at the highest levels!!!

Dam's Ear Notch: 9-11
Sire of Dam: On Time
Description:: If you're in search of a later July to early August aged barrow that has the mass and bone and look to be competitive at the highest level, this 79-4 is a MUST!!! He's so bold in his center and yet squares square to the ground and stays within his skeleton! He is rugged as they come with a super stout skull and jaw yet he stays attractive up front because of his extension and clean made look! We like this one a lot! NOTE: Vet will remove dewclaws off of the inside of both front feet. It should heal up just fine with a problem. Yet, we do guarantee a full recovery or will give 100% refund. So, we would like to have the buyer leave him here at least 3-4 weeks to recover and make sure it all heals up right. If it's all good we can deliver him after our early November Sale. The buyer doesn't even need to pay until that point in which we can be sure that's it's healed properly. Then, if even past that point later in the feeding season, it presents any sort of problem we would give them a 100% refund. Thanks for your patience and understanding on this issue.

They are barrows that appear to be ones that should have a wide window of when they can be shown and how long they can stay 12:00!!! Just the natural back shape, rib shape, and center body of these guys should allow them to stay right while you grow them slow for a pretty good while! We certainly got Pinnacle matted right here in this match up with this particular Visionary daughter!

So, we would like to have the buyer leave him here at least 3-4 weeks to recover and make sure it all heals up right. If it's all good we can deliver him after our early November Sale. The buyer doesn't even need to pay until that point in which we can be sure that's it's healed properly. Then, if even past that point later in the feeding season, it presents any sort of problem we would give them a 100% refund. Thanks for your patience and understanding on this issue.

Sire of Dam: Bear
Weight in lbs (as of 09.04.15): 40
Description:: BEAR 84 X BEAR 22'S LITTERMATE!!! THIS IS BIG TIME SPECIAL GOOD WE BELIEVE!!! Even though these gilts are later about their maturity and they are still just babies... We read these double bred Bears to only just get more and more massive and powerful as they age, grow, and mature!!! Study the true shape, the true structure, the true dimension, and the ultra cool extension of these Bear 84's!!! As we've said in the past... You have to be patient enough with the Bear 84's! They will not be jackpot ready as early, it takes them more time to reach the ideal conditioning... But, the success of the Bear 84's in UNDENIABLE!!! Especially, the Bear 84 x Bear pedigree success!!! Grand at Denver! Grand at Perry, GA! Reserve Grand at LSU! Champion Hampshire at Houston! And the list just keeps growing and growing!!! We have put a large number of B84 X Bear females back into the keeper pens as well!!!

Sire of Dam: Maverick
Weight in lbs (as of 11.01.15): 57
Description:: This white Visionary barrow looks like he'll be one to run hard in the Yorkshire deal! Unless he starts to freckle up between now and then this one appears to be all white and he's a STOUT DUDE!!! He's incredibly heavy boned, he's busted open in his center body, and he's the ideal length of body with a great kind of look still from his blade forward!!! We like how this one squares up and handles his hip and rear leg with comfort and authority!!! We are really high on this barrow prospect!!!

Sire of Dam: Untouchable 159
Weight in lbs (as of 11.01.15): 65
Description:: These 224's were impressive at birth and they have never changed in our minds!!! Just extremely heavy structured barrows that are square built and correct off both ends! They are the kind that seem to work over and over!!! It feels like sometimes we under promote these kind, just because maybe they aren't super freaky anywhere, but if you want to break them down top to bottom and front to rear you will see how awesomely complete and well balanced they are!!! The little young sow that is their mother could be a truly special generator for us here the next few years!!! Great Trio Here!!!

Description:: These 41's are double bred Bear barrows and they offer an awful lot of good!!! They might balance up with as much good and show appeal from the side as any!!! They nearly run uphill and are good pasterned. We see both of these barrows as being ELITE FEEDING HOGS!!! These are the kind that will make even an average feeder look like a pro!!! They are just built so right with the correct kind of skeletons to last and be comfortable on the move!!!

Sire of Dam: Visionary
Description:: We really like what we see in these little 237 litter barrows!!! They read like they are going to feed out of this world good!!! They are square built and designed up well with the right kind of shape and body and bone work in great balance with each other!!! These are the kind of barrows that will sometimes slip thru the cracks and get overlooked slightly due to the numbers of extremely high quality pigs we offer... THAT END UP WINNING IT ALL SOMEWHERE JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE BUILT RIGHT, THEY ARE SQUARE, THEY ARE SOUND, AND THEIR MATURITY PATTERN IS IDEAL!!!

Description:: This pair of barrows read like they are going to be MAJOR LEAGUE GOOD!!! They are incredibly shapely, they have great design and look!!! They are trendy in terms of being ultra tall shouldered, clean necked, and just explosive down their tops with massive rib cages!!! Yet, even though they offer such a trendy look, they are still very basic in their skeletal build and structure!!!

He's tall shouldered and has great extension up front! When you get on this one and study the true power and shape he's packing in terms of back shape and boldness about his rib... You just like him that much more!!!
