Crossing with Berkshire?    (Posted Mon, Jan 16 '12 at 05:12 UTC)

Hi,

I've got hamps and duroc, thinking of using a berkshire boar but I'm concerned about what to expect from this cross. I understand they are slower growing but just how much?

Striving to be just a little less technologically dependant, at least as far as what I eat and drink.

Our 100% berkshire feeder pigs adverage 140-160 days to market weight depending on the lines they are from.
