A big thank you to all of our feeders who competed at this week’s Colorado State Fair in Pueblo. It was another great show, and as Judge Eric Polich stated during the Cross show, “Any of these top 5 middle and heavy crosses could go play in the Midwest, Texas or Oklahoma.” What a huge compliment, because let’s face it, Colorado isn’t the first place most folks think of, when it comes to extremely competitive hog shows. But, if you were there – you knew – the Cross division this year was deep and probably the best it has ever been. With that being said, it was exciting to see Crane-bred pigs be placed on the top end of those tough classes.
