Hog Barn Move
(Sunday, January 25, 2004 )
Dr. Fred Conte captured on digital camera today's move of the Pig Barn from the site where it's sat for more than 80 years to its new site near the Silo. Fred's photos will stir various emotions in anyone familiar with the Pig Barn and its long history dating from early days of the campus.
Representatives from the future occupants watched and recorded the move, and the campus had on hand a professional photographer. But individual photos won't provide the same sense of the move as the sequence of photos recording the move from beginning to end.
Thanks to Fred for taking several hours of his Saturday morning to record the entire process.

This 17-minute movie is produced by the University of California at Davis. It tells the story and history of the hog barn before its move.
