Wanted: Pig Pictures

National Hog Farmer  believes all hogs are beautiful and we think you might agree!  To share our pork industry enthusiasm we invited our readers to submit their favorite photo of their ugliest--or prettiest-- pig. We’re going for that positive pig personality and charm here! To get the ball rolling, we selected what we believe to be our ugliest boar from the thousands of photos in the National Hog Farmer photo archive. Sure, he’s ugly, but you can’t beat that beautiful smile…or can you??? We challenged readers to send us those charming pig portraits that we knew they were dying to share with fellow pig enthusiasts.

The champion pig photographers in each category will receive a $100 cash card, with the reserve champion photographers each claiming a $50 cash card. A drawing will be held among voters for National Hog Farmer apparel.
