|RAIL: Champion Barrow Carcass - 2012 Houston Livestock Show|
RING: Class Winner - Class 4 - Lightweight Hamps
For some breeders, a carcass title isn't much....as it doesn't give you a banner, a trophy, or a flashy photo to use for advertising.
But, for Crane Show Pigs it is a BIG DEAL.
It just goes to prove - once again - that our pigs are the REAL DEAL.
These pigs are full of muscle, the result of outstanding genetics... and not from man-made products.
Crane-bred pigs have what it takes to compete in both the ring, AND the rail.
Last year, a Crane-bred pig took home Reserve Champion honors in the 2011 San Antonio Livestock Show's Carcass Contest. That pig, was the Division Champion - Lite Crossbreds, and was shown by Daniel Poage of Levelland, Texas.
