Pig-calling contest nothing to snort at

August 15, 2010 (SPRINGFIELD)

At the Illinois State Fair downstate, both groups got their time to shine.

People came from all around the region to compete in the pig-calling contest.

Contestants were judged on volume, appeal, assurance and originality.

Making the judges laugh was a good strategy as well.

The traditional hog-calling contest was immediately followed by the ever-popular husband-calling contest.
