At the Fair: "The Other White Meat"
by Randall L. Whipkey

In yesterday's judging for Best Hog--4H Division at this year's Summerset County Fair, the Proctor youth and four other teenage pork raisers won the first five premiums. Each then sold his or her prize hog to a different local business, receiving a premium price for "the other white meat" he or she had so carefully nurtured. Given the judging results below, can you solve this Logic Problem by determining the full name of each 4H prize winner, the name of his or her hog, and the local establishment that bought the hog at auction?

1. The Trudeau youth was awarded a higher premium than Beth, who finished one place ahead of Rumpus' guardian in the event.
2. Neither John nor Carrie had ever earned a Fair premium before; West's only ribbon is a red in hare raising at the 1999 Fair.
3. The hog purchased by Penrose Pork Products, Inc. placed one position behind the black-and-white Walter in the judging.
4. Bosephus wasn't the hog judged 4th-best.
5. In order 1st-5th (but not necessarily consecutively) were these three 4H'ers: the one whose hog was bought at auction by Buck's BBQ, Daniel, and the Miller youth.
6. Beth is a Summerset County Fair veteran, with two blue and a yellow ribbon at the 1998 and 1999 events.
7. John's prize hog wasn't the one sold to Summerset Meat Market.
8. Tip Top Superette won't be featuring pork chops from prize hog Tiny.
9. The Van Kamp youth isn't the one who raised Walter.
10. In the final judging, the West youth won a higher prize than Andy, whose hog finished ahead of the one bought by Summerset Meat Market.
11. The sleek Mr. Piggy didn't go to Ma's Kettle Restaurant or to Tip Top Superette in the auction.
12. Buck's BBQ didn't buy either John's or Carrie's hog.
13. Carrie and the Miller youth both live in town; they raised their prize-winning pork in stalls donated to 4H by Cozy Valley Farm.
