Its that time again! Time to sign up for the NJSA All-Around Sweepstakes Circuit. The first show of the season is the NJSA Southwest Regional, September 2-4 in Chickasha, Oklahoma.
New this year to the All-Around Sweepstakes -purebred barrows will be worth the same in points as gilts. In the past showing a purebred barrow would earn you an additional 5 points. This year a barrow is worth the same, however you only gets points for one and not both. As an example if you show a Yorkshire gilt and place 2nd and also show a Duroc barrow and place 1st you will be rewarded 100 points for the barrow and 90 for the gilt but only the points from the barrow will count. We will take the points from your highest placing animal, the same as in the past when the points from your highest placing gilt were used.
Also remember that you must be signed up and paid in full before the show begins in order for the points to count. You can sign up at any time before the show.
