they're big broncos fans -- except for the first born son. ryan haarer found out why the ten year old is already defying
12:37 pm
"we are all broncos fans except for him." it's not like the weibler's first born had much of a choice. "whoever wins the super bowl, we'll name them that." in 2005-- tom brady and the patriots won the super bowl. "people for the first time when i tell them, they're like, what? then they look at brady and go 'what? why? i'll just say, well, i like the name!" but brady weibler fully embraced it. although he's quickly found himself the odd man out at school.... "you have nobody to talk to." and at home. "he's usually pretty good but sometimes he gets too annoying and we send him to another room to watch. because we can't stand it!" the weiblers didn't stop at brady. in 2007 peyton manning led the colts to a super bowl. and son number two came along. "i'm peyton." yup. brady's younger brother-- is peyton. and since manning's move from indy-- game time's been-- tense. "usually i am on the floor. peyton's on the couch and mom and dad are on the couch." mom and dad will have to sit in the middle during sunday's afc championship game. "we are going to fight a lot."
12:38 pm
they're wrestling and yelling at each other. unfortunately it usually looks like brady is on top." brady's the smack talker... "we already have four underneath our belt. and he has-- how many? i forgot to count... two. oh yeah that's right." actually, peyton's only got one ring so far, but his namesake is learning how to keep up with his big brother. "well the patriots... nice comeback... stink!" as for sunday, if the broncos lose, things could get ugly. "i am going to punch my brother in the face." ah yes. a strong sibling rivalry. thanks to mom and dad who won't have much sympathy for their oldest come sunday-- in a house divided. "it'll be three on one. we'll just tie brady up and throw him out in the garage for two or three hours." stick around, david geiger visited a hog barn this week.. that's up next on the

good afternoon.. geiger. iowa is number one in the nation for pork production.. there are more than 62 hundred hog operations.. employing 40 thousand iowans.. and has an economic impact of seven and a half billion dollars.. according to the iowa pork producers association and while many of you probably
12:40 pm
not know what goes on inside.. well, this week i headed over to oskaloosa to a trioak foods affiliated farm... owned by farmer doug dubruin to watch pigs headed to market. "we're going to get ready to load a couple loads of pigs that are going to go to market so you're going to see us bring them to the front of the shed and getting them out of the door and onto the semi." it's dawn at farmer dubruin's hog barn.. and with the truck pull up, it's time to move pigs.. "now these hogs being guided out to the truck will be headed off to jbs in ottumwa where they'll be turned into pork chops, loins or even bacon." "we're taking everything that's left in the building today. so, we're first going to get them out into the alley way and then you kind of carefully take them up the alley way to the front of the building and get them onto the semi." they do that through sorting panels.. patting.. hollering.. whistling.. and the occasional hot shot.. now i didn't volunteer.. but dubruin and his nephews told me they've all been zapped by it.. it's battery powered and not intended to cause pain.. think of it like a shock collar for a dog.. all those actions causes discomfort to make hogs
12:41 pm
are just shy of three hundred pounds and it can be dangerous if they don't move. "it's actually really important when you're in there just to try and keep things as calm as possible. so, you don't want to get the pigs worked up and it's just better if you can keep them calm also. you try to stay behind them and work them toward the front and you try and more steer them than push them." stressing out the pigs is bad business, it causes p-s-e.. or pale, soft, exudative.. which downgrades the quality of the meat.. and can even kills the pigs on the ride. dubruin doesn't want that. "we're responsible for the health and wellbeing of these pigs and we're going to do everything we can to make sure that they are comfortable, even when they're going to market so they make it there the best they can.. "nats door closes fade out" pig health is in action way before moving the hogs...
12:42 pm
workers at the barn.. have to shower in and out.. change clothes and they couldn't even go onto the semi where they're guiding the hogs. dubruin was sending off finishing hogs.. in the next couple weeks he's going to disinfect the whole barn to prepare it for a new crop of young hogs.. and speaking of sending hogs to market.. today's markets aren't looking so good... "...i'm selling corn at this point..." "...take a chance up at this level and get short.." "...everything looks to go lower..."
