The Berkshire hog was introduced to the United States in the early 1800s and in 1875 the American Berkshire Association was founded as the first swine group and registry in the world. The first boar to be recorded in the registry was Ace of Spades, bred by Queen Victoria herself. Today many Berkshire breed pigs are descended from these original registered animals.
The meat from Berkshire hogs is redder than conventional pork, somewhat sweeter, and laced with intramuscular fat, which makes it more tender and juicy.
