Tim Hooper


Bliss, Idaho 83314
Born: 1977 in Twin Falls, Idaho

A Tic About Tim:
Tim grew up on a cattle farm in southern Idaho. While the cow/calf operation and the row crop farming took a lot of his time, he managed to raise pigs for his 4-H projects throughout his early life. He graduated from high school in 1995, and achieved an associates degree in Agribusiness from the College of Southern Idaho. After college he returned home to manage the cattle feedlot, while developing an elite herd of showpig sows. He bred his first gilt in the fall of 1999 and has been hard at it since. Currently he has 5-6 sows which take up a lot of his extra time.

He achieved perfect attendance in high school and met his wife (Heidi) in the pig barn in Gooding County. The battle still goes on who was better in showmanship.
