Indiana State Fair crowns ‘World’s Largest Hog’

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – On the opening day of the Indiana State Fair, the World’s Largest Hog competition winner was crowned.

Big Red won the title, weighing in at 1,134 pounds. His owner, Rick Whistler, said that he prepared Big Red for his first competition by feeding him regularly.

“We feed him about 20 to 25 pounds (of food) a day,” said Whistler.

Big Red is 100 pounds larger than the 2014 winner, Spotosaurus Rex, who weighed 1,007 pounds.
