Exploding the myths, misconceptions and untruths about American agriculture.

My first day at the 2013 PA Farm Show with the Today's Agriculture display. This is the most progressive presentation of modern food production in the whole nation.
Long time friend Tom Farrer from Royal Center, IN has just selected the Berkshire bred gilt as the Supreme Champion female. The first time in the history of the PA Farm Show that a Berkshire has been named Grand Champion.
Isaac Lewis is the Ag teacher and FFA advisor at Hampshire High School in Romney, WV invites me to partner in the purchase of this Supreme Grand Champion Berkshire bred gilt. We end up buying her together for a record price of $3400. She is due to farrow on Jan 25th and will do so at the Hampshire High School swine farm.
