    Congratulations to Dan Schiferl of Stoughton, WI who showed the Grand Champion Barrow at The Governor's Livestock Sale at the WI State Fair.
    His Crossbred Barrow weighed in at 271 pounds, fetched $16,500.
    One VERY wide and big-boned Pig! :1pig:

    The Wisconsin State Farmer Newspaper had a Photo of him on page 1, Section B, Aug. 11 edition. Regretably, I was unable to find a way to get photo posted here. www.wisfarmer.com is their site. Sorry even there I don't find a way to access the pic. Perhaps it will show up in some of the swine publications.
