It is with great pleasure that we’d like to announce the hire of Dustin Andrus as our Assistant Farm Manager here at Ottenwalter Show Pigs. Dustin hails from Gooding, Idaho and he and his family have been long-time customers and supporters. Dustin grew up showing pigs and working with all different species of livestock. We’ve had the chance to watch him develop into a hard-working, humble young man. Upon his graduation from high school, Dustin spent a year working for us managing our show barn and learning how we do things here at Ottenwalter Show Pigs. After he returned to Idaho to run his family farm, Dustin also spent some time in Oregon managing a show lamb operation and traveling to shows across the country to help young people with their projects. He has a tremendous passion for the show pig industry and truly loves every aspect of breeding and feeding hogs. It would be an understatement to say WE ARE ECSTATIC to have Dustin back in action here in Colusa!
Dustin will be involved in all activities here at the farm, including semen collection and sales, sale contact for all of our auctions, sorting sale pigs, breeding sows, daily chores, weaning, vaccinating, and traveling to shows to help our customers. He is just finishing his first week at work and has hit the ground running as we’ve been taking photos and videos for the upcoming Ladies Of Our Legacy Sale. Please join us in welcoming Dustin to the team!
