Unless you are looking at a map or are just wandering without direction, it can be a little tricky to stumble upon the Pig Barn (officially called Hogs).  The snorting bacon-slabs-on-feet are out in the southwest corner of the Fairgrounds on the backside of the Grandstands.

I was just meandering through the pens and happened upon Logan.  He was happily hanging out with his hogs, one of which is a Grand Champion with a pretty orange and purple ribbon.

Logan was very well-spoken and happily answered my questions about Boss Hog and his hopes for this weekend’s auction.  Boss weighs just about 300lbs and cost Logan about $600 to raise.  An auction price of $3-$4 per pound would make Logan a very happy pig farmer.

Oh, and he broke his foot right before Fair when he was jumping on a trampoline.  Logan, I mean, not Boss Hog.

I am a Clark County Fair Fanatic and eat all things fried during the glorious 10 days of The Fair. I have lived in Clark County since 2004 and consider it the second-best decision of my life. I am married to a great guy named Rob (first-best decision) who graciously carries my stuff and takes my picture every time I eat something at The Fair. We have two indoor cats and lots of deer, rabbits, and coyotes who are kind enough to stay outside.
