Ben Kluesner, 15, front, and his cousin Nolan Brames, 16, both of St. Anthony, worked together to administer a flu vaccine to pigs at the Huntingburg farm belonging to their grandfather, Ernie Brames, on Tuesday. “I vaccinate a lot up here. After a while, it’s not hard,” Ben said. Ernie emphasized the importance of vaccination. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” he said.
