(Lift Off x Venom)

Berkshire Female
Bred By: Schipper Purebreds

Stress: Negative

Abby was a gilt I selected from Schipper’s keeper pen.  She was impressive to me with her attractiveness and eye appeal.  In addition, she has massive chest coming towards you, which is something to admire in a Berkshire female.  Furthermore she is sound and complete with no real flaws.  

Abby has an incredible pedigree to match he external qualities.  Her sire is Lift off who is a Superfly x Shotgun Wedding.  Lift Off’s littermate gilt was the Reserve Grand at the Team Purebred Nationals.  The dam of Lift Off was the 6th Overall Gilt at the 2014 Indiana State Fair.  Venom is the maternal sire of Abby.  Venom was the $46,000  Champion Berkshire Boar at the 2012 Summer Type Conference.

Lift Off was a son of SuperFly on the Lilly Jackson 6th Overall Gilt @ 2014 Indiana State Fair that we purchased for $20,000 from Heimer Hampshires. Two powerhouse parents sit behind this guy and put SuperFly and Shotgun Wedding together in the first generation. It gets even more fun when you go back to the next generation and see Superman, Miss Hathaway and Heimer’s famous Man In Black sow that has produced numerous champions in her 1st 2 litters.
