I’ve finally got a few pictures to update ya’ll on Katy’s fair week. She had a very successful showing with both her swine and poultry projects.

In the swine project she finished 5th over all in rate of gain and 7th in overall points. She showed second in her class being bested by her stall mate Lonnie who won Reserve Champion. Her second hog finished with 4th in its class and 27th in rate of gain.

Her poultry project she finished as Reserve Champion showing her Barred Rock cockerel Rocky. She was extremely happy with her efforts and her dad was damned proud of her too. I think she really started to click with her showing. She paid attention to what the judges offered her in advice and didn’t take any of the criticism in the wrong light.

Her hog sold at auction on Saturday for $3.75 a pound. Not a bad haul on a 259 pound hog.

A very special thanks to Friscos for bidding on and winning her hog.
