Icon is the ultimate in meat quality growth and productivity. He is one of the most unique Berkshire boars I have seen in the last 15 years. This guy's pedigree has the best meat quality from the US and Europe combined with look, design, and structural integrity of a top breeding boar of any breed. Al Christian of IA State University, one of the most brilliant minds in the Berkshire breed, is responsible for putting a lot of his pedigree together. Better study this one! Icon is a naturally tall fronted, big ribbed massive Berk boar with excellent feet and legs. He has a 7-7 high quality underline with ideal hip and hind leg. He is a big bladed, stout fronted, long hipped boar with extreme length of side. He is a big bodied boar with extra center body (study his depth of loin). He is a stout boned, strong pasturned boar with extra muscle. His outcross pedigree will sire easy flushing, fast growing, very high meat quality berks with extra look and design of a Berkshire show pig. Production, numbers born, milk flow from the old English Namat Jira line is special!
