A littermate sister to the boar was the $9,000 7th Overall York Gilt at the 2018 OYE!
Divergent is an absolute monster of a Yorkshire boar!! Incredibly heavy boned and stout in his feature. Huge feet and toes with a gigantic rear leg. Up on his toes and strength of pasterns for this breed is the most impressive part. Crossbred mass and muscle with a bold, robust turn to his rib. Power and mass at any view point but flawless in his build and range of motion. Perfect to put on belted sows to make blues even. We have never owned a Yorkshire boar quite like this one. Aspire to be different. Aspire to be Divergent!!!
