Berkshires have lovely marbeling qualities to their meat like beef does.  Something many other breeds don't.   THere is a good market for Berkshire pork to Japan.   In Sioux Center, Iowa there's a packer who sends Berk meat to Japan.   They are often looking for growers and some of their growers are several hundred miles away so if you'd be interested, you might look into it.   They pay premium prices.
