Heisman 24-4 is one of the thickest york boars we have raised. This mature photo was taken in his working clothes and the rump picture was taken in his younger days. He is massive in his chest floor and rib shape. This boar is naturally fed (no Paylean or Matrix) and he has been selected for his natural thickness, rib and growth. Heisman 24-4 is a maternal boar who is also massive in his top shape as well as his rump. This moderate framed boar is square on all four corners and sound in motion. We plan to use him heavy on our herd to put back in some older blood lines into our yorks and we feel he will match up well with our About Time daughters. Heisman’s 24-4 and Heisman 24-2’s littermate was the Grand Champion Market Hog at the 2014 Jefferson County Fair, TN.

We retained both littermate boars in this Heisman 24-4 (Maternal) and Heisman 24-2 (Terminal).  Simple put, an incredible set of moderate frame York boars with soundness and muscle (hard to find these days).

Heisman 24-4 has been making an incredible impression on our herd.  We have kept him a secret and retained about every gilt out of him.  In addition, he makes great crossbreds, york barrows and boars.  Heisman 24-4 will stamp out a massive chest, body and rib in his pigs.  They are very easy to feed because they have natural body and belly.  In addition, for a york boar he throws muscle, which is hard to find in most purebred yorks.  This is one of my favorite boars we have raised to date.  You will start to see more of his pigs being shown in 2017.

Trophy’s dam was the NJSA SW Regional Champion Yorkshire Gilt, and his granddam is a littermate to Tank.  His pedigree includes: Spud, Night Tripp x2, New Beginnings X2, Moonshine, Moonshine 17-4, Ice Age, Mighty Mack 74-1, One Ton, Mack, and One Up.
