Grand Champion Gilt McLean County Fair, Aug. 6, 1958

Champion gilt, 1958.

That’s a proud Walter Gottschalk of Danvers at the 1958 McLean County 4-H Club Fair. He’s posing with his grand champion gilt hog, a Spotted Poland China.
For you city slickers, “gilt” means a female pig that has not yet been bred.
