4-H Pigs Visit South Pole

A herd of 4-H Club pigs are now dining aboard one of Commander Byrd’s South Pole expedition vessels. The herd consists of six gilts and one boar which are kept aboard the ship for breeding purposes in order to supply the pork needed for the expedition party during their stay in the South Pole region. The 4-H Club boys who sold the hogs to the Byrd purchasing agent are Prior and David Gimbert of Princess Ann County, Virginia. (National 4-H Boys and Girls Club News, January 1929).
