On July 12, Rhett Long of Vernal, Utah, visited the Rangely 4-H Community Pens to teach the 4-H members how to shave a pig, what to expect in showmanship at the Rio Blanco County Fair and offer advice for feeding 4-H swine. There were more than 30 4-H members and parents, some from as far as Grand Junction, present to listen to Long.
