LMAO, I can vouch for that though I've done the same thing in Minnesota in subzero temps with a 4x8 sheet of plywood. I doubt you were in with 500 lb sows however, that's a little bigger than the norm. Then we threw a couple hundred bales of 80 lb alfalfa just to get our blood warmed before we really went to work at the Loeffler farm.
If you think I'm kidding, Google Brian and Brad Loeffler from St. Clair, MN. Now THERE were some tough brothers. 6 X AA's in Division II very much in the style of Kevin Steinhaus.
