Prettiest Pig
<p> National Hog Farmer 2012 Hogs Are Beautiful Photo Contest &quot;Prettiest Pig Winner. &quot;This is a picture of my very first gilt, Emma Grace,&quot; writes Andrea Wallerman. &quot;She has had two litters so far and is due to farrow again the end of July. My children are into showing pigs at the local fair, so when they picked out their fair pigs, I picked out Emma. I learned how to A.I. online, and I have been very successful with it. I am now expanding my pig operation all because of Emma! In my opinion, she is the cutest gilt that I have ever seen!&quot;</p>
