2013 "Take Me Out To the Showring" is Under Way

Exhibitors and their families poured into Louisville, Ky., for the National Junior Summer Spectacular (NJSS). Each year, a theme is chosen for the show. This year, it's all the sport that is as American as apple pie - Baseball and the love for the game. More than 700 exhibitors from 27 states are represented at this year's show.

NJSS officially started on Tuesday, July 2. After registration, juniors got involved with the MVP Celebration and Barnyard Olympics. Below are some candid shots from both events. 

Today, the Ag Sales and Skillathon contests took place. Then opening ceremonies familiarized juniors with the National Swine Registry staff, NJSA Board, Board Candidates and the show schedule.
