Correction Line Farm
Casey Muse is the third generation to work the family farm near Hallett and Jennings in Pawnee County, but he is more than a farmer.
“I grew up here, born and raised in Pawnee County,” he said in January 2017. “I’m a welder by trade. I worked in the oil field.”
Muse is a third-generation pastor and ministers to a congregation of about 45 at the Grace Gospel Church in Jennings.
Muse also sits on the town council, served as a school board member and now drives a school bus and does maintenance work for the Jennings School District.
Even as a jack-of-all-trades, Muse has time to raise pigs on Correction Line Farm.
“I like hogs,” he said. “I’ve had hogs since I was in high school.”
His grandfather built the farm as a dairy, and his parents met at Oklahoma State University, he said.
“My dad bought in and said, ‘I want to be a farmer, too!,” he said. “He added hogs to the dairy. I never showed hogs. We just sold them at market.”
His dad started small — or at least that’s how he had planned to start — Muse said.
“My dad started out with one Berkshire sow, and she had 16 pigs her first litter,” he said. “Her name was Bessie. She raised all of them. She always had big litters. Then dad started getting into Herford hogs. he was probably the first one around here.”
Now, Muse raises mostly Blue Butts, a breed of hogs that is usually a cross between Hampshire and Yorkshire or Chester White hogs.
Muse partnered with 1907 Meat Co. in January, and has provided 10 pigs to the shop so far.
