Final Fair Flurry
The fair is over. Whew!
The top two pictures above are of Katie showing her pig. The show was Monday, the auction was today. Katie's pig weighed 250 pounds and she got about $3.00 per pound.
The bottom two pictures are of Jr. In the first picture, his FFA advisor/Ag Teacher had just finished brushing his long hair out of his eyes before he entered the show ring. I was a fraction of a second too late to catch this gentle, motherly gesture. Jr. got $4.00 per pound and his pig weighed 230 pounds.
The guy in the bottom right picture with the tan cap is the swine judge.
The commercial livestock price for these pigs is just under 38 cents per pound, so you can see the generous support local businesses offer the kids by offering inflated prices at the fair auction. They are good people.
It was fun and now it's done.
