31 International Stock Foods Poster 38 Hog Fattener

This is another LARGE FORMAT Poster with a size of 28”x 21” showing a huge black hog eating corn cobs. This image is related to the testimonial from a farmer in Bennington, Kansas that is printed at the bottom of this poster.  It seems Mr. Ostrander wanted to test the effectiveness of International Stock Food for himself.  He purchased the “scrubbiest pig I could find.”  “This little runt was eight months old and weighed ten pounds and was the worst looking specimen of a runt you ever saw.”  BUT after eating ISF for eight months she weighted 500 pounds.  The poster has been professionally mounted on artist board and has had the old fold lines in the poster smoothed out.  They really did an excellent job.  The fold lines are reduced.  There is paper separation apparent at a fold line in the testimonial section of the poster, one edge tear in the lower right just into the blue of the border, and one pinhead size paper loss in the blue below the “FOR” in the header.  Overall it is BIG, BRIGHT, and BOLD, just like the hog in the image.  It is framed in a modern black frame.  The consigner purchased this in our auction of 2013 for $100.  Sold to the high bidder this time.
