Meet Morgan Lobdell, the gal behind our website and social media!
Q: How many years have you been showing/raising hogs?
A: I have been showing pigs since I was 9 years old. I got my first two county fair pigs from my cousins and was hooked. Casey and I started dating in 2015. In order to spend time with him, I worked with him and supported the pigs every step of the way. I started doing all our marketing and online sale photography. My true passion is farrowing and spending time with sows and babies. The only thing better than baby pigs is seeing families and kids benefiting from their show animal.
Q: Favorite breed?
Q: What is your favorite past show pig?
A: The trio of spot gilts are pretty memorable from the 2020 National.
Q: Why did you start raising pigs or choose to become involved?
A: Date night was always in the barn. It was good that I had a passion for it. I have always been drawn to pigs and expanded that when I went to Iowa State. It’s great to be able to combine my passion and work with family.
Q: Favorite job on the farm?
A: Day one pig care
Q: Fun fact related to pigs that people may not know about you.
A: My great-grandfather raised Poland Chinas and won several state competitions. They moved away from pigs to dairy farm. My family kept commercial pigs until ’92. Things come full circle because there are hogs again on my family’s home farm.
