Hi, my name is Caiden Cartwright. I am 10 years old and this my fourth year in the Horsefly 4H club and my second year a junior member. My lot number is 108. This year I choose to do swine because I really enjoyed doing it last year. My pig’s name is Buster and he is a Tamworth Large Black cross. I raise him in rotational pasture because pasture-raised pork is the best. With his daily ration of hog grower and fresh veggies this keeps Buster super happy because he gets to forage and root new areas all the time. Buster’s favorite thing is to have belly scratches.
