Anybody keep berkshire? anybody got any opinions or information on the breed ?
You win the prize Berks are the fastest growing registered breed as far as nos. registered. It is because of meat quality and marbeling. The market in Japan pays a premium for this type of meat and the packers are glad to take there money :haha: The berks are used in a cross breeding program or as terminal sires usualy. Packers usualy have some type of premiums built into the contracts and producers breed what it takes to gain the extra income!Jennifer122102 said:I have heard that they tend to have a slightly higher fat content than the other major breeds. The meat is more "marbled" than other breeds.
