Fred, who died in 1974, farmed at Springfield, Gretna. I knew him and his charming wife. He was a great character, Fred, talking often of his grandfather "the Pig King" - a successful farmer, a breeder of cattle and pigs and a great story teller. Fred developed by artificial insemination many find beasts. He was send to S. Africa as an advisor on breeding by A.I.
