4-H Market Swine Spring Weigh-in - noisey but fun!

The 2010 4-H market swine spring weigh in was held on Saturday, May 8 at the Bonner County Fairgrounds. We had 101 members bring 143 piggies to be weighed in. Needless to say, it is always a "sqeelin" time!

Cars lined up at 6:30 am for the start time of 8:00 am!

First stop was the Tagger Lady - Mary Presser. Most of these pigs don't like getting their ears pierced!

Then on to the scales to get their weight.

Then on to the Shot Lady - Kim Hoodenpyle. We all want healthy pigs. They were getting vaccinated and wormed.

This was the shot table and the dedicated helpers filling syringes for Kim.

Thank you to all our volunteers that helped out. Tim Cary, scales, Mary Presser, tagging, Kim Hoodenpyle, vaccinations and wormer; Harmony Morgan and Makayla Morgan, syringe fillers; Brian Hoodenpyle, Kyle Hoodenpyle, Mike Ludolph, Miriah Ferrel,Daniel Desjarlais, as well as others, pig movers, Moreen Leen, Billie Cochran, and Patti Speelmon.
