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?
- The Trudeau youth was awarded a higher premium than Beth, who
finished one place ahead of Rumpus' guardian in the event.
- 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.
- The hog purchased by Penrose Pork Products, Inc. placed one
position behind the black-and-white Walter in the judging.
- Bosephus wasn't the hog judged 4th-best.
- 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.
- Beth is a Summerset County Fair veteran, with two blue and a
yellow ribbon at the 1998 and 1999 events.
- John's prize hog wasn't the one sold to Summerset Meat Market.
- Tip Top Superette won't be featuring pork chops from prize hog
- The Van Kamp youth isn't the one who raised Walter.
- In the final judging, the West youth won a higher prize than
Andy, whose hog finished ahead of the one bought by Summerset
- The sleek Mr. Piggy didn't go to Ma's Kettle Restaurant or to
Tip Top Superette in the auction.
- Buck's BBQ didn't buy either John's or Carrie's hog.
- Carrie and the Miller youth both live in town; they raised their
prize-winning pork in stalls donated to 4H by Cozy Valley Farm.
