In 1875, a group of Berkshire breeders and importers met in Springfield, Illinois, to establish a way of keeping the Berkshire breed pure. These agricultural leaders of the day felt the Berkshire should stay pure for improvement of swine already present in the United States and not let it become only a portion of the “Common Hog” of the day. On February 25 of the same year, the American Berkshire Association (ABA) was founded, becoming the first Swine Registry to be established in the world. The first hog ever recorded was the boar, Ace of Spades, bred by Queen Victoria.
