We added pigs to our farm in 2014. We brought home three wonderful Berkshire/Spot gilts and I chose Delilah to keep as a breeder due to her impressive build and wonderful temperament. We then added Sampson, a purebred Berkshire boar out of champion lines, to breed her. What we got from that mating was the prettiest, most impressive litter of piglets we've ever seen! Delilah was a wonderful mother, raised all her babies without losing a single one, and kept her fantastic temperament throughout it all. We only regret that she didn't give us a single gilt...they were all boars! Most of them sold as herd sires although a few went as nice feeders. Her second breeding was to Possum, a different registered Berkshire boar and she had another beautiful litter...of all gilts! Beautiful, correct piglets with wonderful temperaments. We retained one, Xena, as a breeder. Some pictures of Delilah's babies from both litters are below.

This is Xena, our retained gilt from August 2016, pictured at about 5 weeks of age.


Reference Sire: Registered Berkshire boar, Possum. Possum was sired by FBP4 UNDEFIED 1-9, son of BFS1 SEMPER FI 1-1 and out of STPF2 BA JOAN 7-7, daughter of AJCO AJC KAZUNO 6-1. He was born 6-30-15 in a litter of 11. Possum has moved on to a new owner now but we were very fortunate to have had him while we did! He is such a fantastic boar; strong and correct with good movement and such a great temperament! He really stamps his piglets with his excellence. The only reason we sold him was because we kept Xena, one of his beautiful daughters, as a breeder.

Here is Possum shortly after we got him enjoying a belly rub after his milk dinner. :)
