UPDATE: 6:08 PM (10/8/17) - Both hogs have now been sold. Thank you Don Rider for supporting FFA.
Klamath Falls, Ore. - A pair of Bonanza High School FFA students raised hogs for the 2017 Klamath County Fair. Unfortunately at the time of fair, the animals were underweight and did not qualify for auction. Now a few weeks later the animals are ready for buyers.
Lupe a senior at Bonanza High School plans to go to college and study criminal justice and has been in the FFA program since 8th grade.
Maurico has lived in Bonanza his entire life and has always worked around animals. In 6th grade he took up raising sheep for the Fair. This year he raised a hog with his sister.
Saddly, Lupe and Maurico revived their hogs late in the season so they did not have enough time to grow into the weight they needed to be by auction time.
Klamath Falls News is helping to facilitate this sale - asking for help from our friends to find a buyer(s) for these hogs. If you wish to purchase these hogs please send me a message on Facebook or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you in contact with each other.
