Thanks, she's done an awesome job. It's absolutely crazy how genetics have made such a difference in showing at this level. I showed for four years when I was in FFA, and we never had the genetics at this level that pigs today have. Kids showing "pigs bred for show" was extremely uncommon. We paid $75 for a 50-60 pound hog, fed commercial Purina Lean Generation feed and went at it. These days, feed rationing that supports your breeders genetics is like chemestry lab.
