75 YEARS AGO: A purebred registered Hampshire gilt (young female domestic pig) was received by the Turlock High School Chapter of the Future Farmers of America as a gift from Lawrence McDaniels, agricultural instructor at Cedarville, Modoc County. McDaniels had promised the FFA a gilt while he was a cadet teacher at the school the previous year.
