"

Every year I came to the fair and I always wanted to go to the
t-barn and so I can look at the pigs," Jacob Kerner-Deyoung, 4-H participant said.


A

ll those years of coming to the fair made
Jacob realize that he wanted to raise a pig.


"

She's a very playful pig and very nice
so raising her was lots of fun," Kerner-Deyoung said.

Madeline, a 300 pound hog, that he will show off in a 4-H competition at the fair. A yearly showcase that allows local kids to compete and gives fair goers the chance to watch.
