Who deserves a bigger trophy - the best pig-caller, or the best husband-caller?

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.
