Pierce County pigs make the grade at State Fair
After years of trying, the Freund family of the town of El Paso came home big winners from the 2007 Minnesota State Fair.
While his father Michael did most of the advance work, 13-year-old Patrick showed the family's pigs, winning the titles of Senior Champion Swine, Senior Champion Boar and Senor Champion Gilt.
"We came in dead last for years - we honestly did," said Jeanne Freund. "This was honestly our year."
