It’s that time of the year again in the Midwest!

Hi Everyone!

It’s that time again in the Midwest!  Time to start working with our pigs for the 4-H fair!  Many of you already have already have your show pigs and are starting to work with them.  This is always a fun time of the year.

Lynsee and I are currently working on our blog series for 2014!  We were wondering if there were any topics that you would like us to discuss or tips on training your pig that you would like us to go into more detail on.  We want these blogs to be useful and helpful to you as you are preparing for the show.  So we decided to ask you!  Just comment below!

Also, we love pictures!  If you have any pictures of working with your pig while following the blog, we would love to see them!  We may even feature them in a blog!  Email them to us at [ ]
