And therein lies a problem...whom ever is your judging coach is now training a whole herd of kids to only care about selling high dollar pigs that fit the trend. And some of those individuals will undoubtedly end up judging shows and picking animals that have no business winning because they don’t have the slightest clue what they’re talking about - just rattle off a bunch of auctioneer garbage into a mic that sounds impressive but doesn’t actually mean anything.
In today’s landscape, it’s far better to overpay for a wreck of a gilt out of something famous, stick the highest priced bottles you can in it and say ‘better look in here so you don’t get beat’ (which, unfortunately, I know for a fact actually means to SOME people that they’re $5000 into the litter and the bank needs re-payed) than it is to make high quality, functional hogs that hold their own in the ring. It’s ONLY about winning today, not improving...and at any and all cost.
