Show Goers Spoofed By Hawg Carrier
Almost no one got by Zietlow Distributing's booth at a recent farm show without a look at a showstopping new product -a pig-packer that, according to straight-faced company representative Rod Crotinger, "Even makes carrying greased pigs easy."
The "revolutionary" Pig-Packer is about 3-ft. long and is shaped like an upside down "C", with a snout loop at one end and a tightening screw at the other.
"We designed it to take advantage of the pig's natural protruberances and aperatures in the least complicated way," Crotinger explained to passersby, who weren't sure what to believe. "Attaches in seconds. Can be used either right or left-handed."
The McPherson, Kan., company reports that, although the pig-packin' carriers could be built to "handle" small calves and lambs, too, orders "have yet to start pouring in". They'll build one for you or your company, though - for just $39.95.
