HEATH SPRINGS – Twenty years from now, Tucker and Thomas Adams are going to be old hands at farming.
After raising 25 chickens last summer, the brothers have been raising two pigs as part of a 4-H market pig project.
And under their watchful eyes and attention for the last four months, those two pigs – 13 and 35 – have grown from about 65 pounds each to almost 250 pounds.
Tucker, 9, is a third-grader at Heath Springs Elementary School, and Thomas, 10, is a fourth-grader. They have been in 4-H for two years.
