It's rare when a York boar surfaces that is extreme in so many traits without falling apart. I don't think I've ever seen a boar with rear legs so huge, yet so correct and flexible (like he has springs in those rear legs). On the other end of his skeleton is his highly desirable stout head and clean neck coming high off his tall shoulders. He's as choke throated as any anywhere of any breed. What really sets him apart (from other ultra clean necked ones) is his big wide centered rib and a flank with extra depth. His chest floor is opened up, he's wide backed, and his long square rump is ultimate.

The dam of PROVEN JOURNEY is a pure York gilt that won her class in the 2013 Crossbred show at Indiana. This foundation female also produced the Reserve Champion Yorkshire Gilt at the 2016 NJSA Southeast Regional in Georgia. As his name implies, PROVEN JOURNEY has already sired Champions, including the Champion Yorkshire Gilt at the 2016 Indiana State Fair. His first pig was the Grand Champion Breeding Gilt at the 2015 WYCE and was the Grand Champion Market Gilt on day 2 at WYCE. Most recently, he sired the Reserve Champions in both the Jr. and Open shows at the 2017 WTC.
Thanks to Funkhouser's for sharing this PROVEN sire of champions.

Yorkshire Hog College Boar - 2016 NBS

Appropriately named considering his natural heads up "look at me" attitude to compliment his flashy muscle shape.  He was the popular College Choice of all breeds as selected by the judging teams at the NBS.  He struts like a champion and securely plants and drives off those rear legs like we wish they all would.  His body build is so impressive with great chest width, squareness of skeleton, and an immense amount of muscle.  His toes are even, his pasterns are ideal, all four legs set squarely.  His top is so strong and powerful, his big rib is square high and low with extra center width.  What's truly impressive is the fact that four of the six barrows in Western Illiniois Champion truckload at the NBS were his littermates.  SHOWOFF should be a genetic giant when it comes to siring champion barrows. The gilts will be just fine too.

Sired Champion Yorkshire Barrow at 2016 Indiana State Fair

SURGE is the most special son of POWER ON 282-7 that we've raised and better in many ways than his daddy. He really excels in the very unique combination of being square made, tall shouldered, and massive bodied. I can't help but admire how clean necked he is with the power of his upper forerib all the way back to his square rump. Even with his excellent width he's got great shape to the center of his body and yet deep thru his rib and flank. (no tube rib here) This guy can help those sows that are too straight in their rear legs, his set is excellent. His toes and pasterns are good. SURGE was destined for our herd boar pens early on, just ask Michael Lackey what he looked like in the nursery. His BRUNO x NET WORTH mama farrowed unassisted 10 born live in this, her first litter.

When a boar pig has the "look", the squareness, the foot size and quality, the shoulder height, the front end, the shape, the soundness and sired by the hottest Duroc boar in the country - I guess HE'S IT. Considering how good his whole litter was and how his mother and her littermate sister have generated and performed for us, he was pegged as a herdsire prospect at a very young age. Especially being he was the best in a litter that was stacked with quality and consistency. HE'S IT 215-2 is a full brother to HE'S IT 276-8.  Their mothers are littermate sisters, 299-3 and 299-1.  It's amazing and very advantageous for predictability that the full brothers are so similar in their builds.  HE'S IT 215-2 is somewhat heavier structured with more set and flex to his rear legs.  In fact, his rear legs are as good as any I've seen in the breed.  Because of those rear legs, along with his great build, he replaced 276-8 in our herdsire pens.  276-8 has sired exceptionally well (the Drake Hook Duroc gilt that's won on the Iowa Circuit) and we expect 215-2 to sire similarily with even more and better structure.  Even though we consider HE'S IT to be a very good "barrow sire", he should sire excellent females. His mother and her littermate sister have farrowed a total of 75 pigs with 73 live with no problems and excellent mothering.

Here's a real breeding hog and we're thrilled to get him.  He's got a huge center rib, massive blade and a he man skull.  His huge legs set square and
are supported by big feet with strong pasterns.  He moves with reach and length of stride (which is rare in the Duroc breed) and his rear legs have the
set needed for that to happen.  He's truly heavy structured and is really impressive as he comes and goes.  His shoulder height is excellent and his neck
is clean for todays demand.  We feel this guy can really impact our herd and the breed if given the chance.

During the SWTC in Belton, a group of us went down to visit Craig Bauman with Schenken Genetics. During the tour, this Belted Cross 5-2 boar came at us with his "breeding hog" boar head, big square toes, perfectly aligned legs (with great joints), natural high head carriage, tall shoulder and a bit bigger than average skeleton. Even in his working clothes, his top was still square and had good rib shape. He was purchased in HEIMER'S Chosen Ones sale. I was thinking, "wow this could really be a great breeding hog". Long story short, I couldn't find a boar at Belton that I wanted more than the one I'd seen at Craig's, especially considering his desirable genetic makeup.
Thank you Craig for working with us on this one.
