Farmer uses pig spleens to forecast weather

A U.S. farmer can forecast a major snowstorm through his pig spleens instead of radar or other high-tech equipment, media reported on Monday.

Paul Smokov, 84, raising cattle on a 1,750-acre ranch north of the town Steel, North Dakota, forecasts the weather by peering at two of brown, glistening, foot-long spleens on his kitchen counter.
