Large Blacks / Berkshires Wanted In 2012

Are there any breeders in the Suffolk/Cambridge/Norfolk/Essex area of these ?

Will be looking for some weaners in Spring 2012 & just starting to put the feelers out.

Rumour has it that the Berkshire is the best thing since sliced bread for pork (second only to the Middle White some say) & the Large Black best thing since sliced bread for bacon.

The above statement is open to debate:D

If anyone can be of assistance that would be great & look forward to hearing from you, regards, ZacB
