State Fair Success!

Congratulations to all junior exhibitors of purebred barrows and gilts on their success during the Midwest state fair season. Throughout the summer, junior purebred hogs have recieved Grand, Reserve Grand and top five honors at multiple state fairs. In support of these accomplishments, the National Swine Registry, along with each of the four individual breed associations, provides numerous premiums to exhibitors of these winning entries.

The Yorkshire gilt below, shown by Delaney Vickrey, Huntington, IN, is just one of the many succesful purebred gilts exhibited at state fairs this summer. Delaney will recieve $500 courtesy of the American Yorkshire Club.

As a reminder to all junior exhibitors, be sure to check your state fair premium books to learn how to obtain these awards. In many cases, the United Duroc Swine Registry, Hampshire Swine Registry, American Landrace Association and American Yorkshire Club offer monetary awards for breed champions and overall grand champion honors. The National Swine Registry is proud to support youth who are actively involved in showing purebreds.
