Every year Blight Farms raises a few pigs specifically for 4-H members. These pigs are minimally different from those in our normal herd but we ensure they are born in February (so they will be the appropriate size for the fair), and the 4-H pigs tend to have a more defined muscle structure. In the photos, Kelsie and Kaleb are selecting what they believe are the best looking pigs for this years project. They may each enter two pigs in the show but will purchase six pigs total. After they are selected, the chosen pigs move to the Weitzel residence where they receive much love and attention.
The pigs weigh about 60 lbs. and are 2.5 months old.
