From the Jan. 22, 1948 News Record:

The following article recently appeared in an Omaha paper: “A smiling, freckle-faced youth from the grasslands of Wyoming Tuesday showed Iowa and Nebraska hog raising experts that producing fine corn-fed animals is not a midwestern process exclusively. The youngster, Warren Evans, 17, of Moorcroft watched his 76 hogs sell at the Omaha market top of $28. They averaged 233 pounds. Warren and his brother, Merrill, 20, last year raised 125 swine on the ranch of their father, Bert Evans, a cattle and sheep feeder. The boys turned their hogs into a 200-acre field of corn, another rare product in that region. The corn was left on the stalks, but young Evans estimated the yield at 30 to 40 bushels per acre. Warren showed keen market judgment.”
