Oh, what I wouldn’t give for you to have a magnifying glass to better inspect this photo. This grinning young man is Landen Tomlin, a proud member of the Rock Creek Ranchers 4-H Club. The reason he is grinning is because he has one heck of a Carbon County Fair project on pigs. He learned that pigs were a lot of fun and a lot of hard work. When asked what his pigs’ names were, he responded with this matter-of-fact statement: “Since this one is Bacon, the other one is obviously Bacon Grease.”

Can’t argue there, Landen, can’t argue there.


Here is hoping that you walk away with a giant blue ribbon. And yes, we see a steer project for you next year, which will likely be named “Lunch” or “Dinner.”
