HIGHLAND TEEN SHOWS GRAND CHAMPION BARROW

15 year-old Lane Rinderer of Highland recently took home one of the top prizes at the Illinois State Fair.  Lane told WGEL that he brought four pigs to the Illinois State Fair Junior Livestock Competition.  One of those pigs took top honors, winning Lane the Land of Lincoln Grand Champion title.  Lane said that winning that honor had always been a goal of his and that he was very excited to win.   

At the Governor’s Sale of Champions, Lane’s pig shattered the previous record, selling for $40,650.  10% of that money went to the FFA, another 10% went to 4-H, and the remaining 80% went back to Lane.  He says that he is going to invest some of the money back into his pig showing hobby, and keep the rest to use for college.

Lane is the son of Brian and Nicki Rinderer and a student at Highland High School.  Lane shows pigs across the United States.
