NSR Weanling Pig Extravaganza

NSR Weanling Pig Extravaganza

The National Swine Registry will be hosting the NSR Weanling Pig Extravaganza on Wednesday, April 23 at the Wayne County Fairgrounds in Richmond, Ind. Each year, this sale attracts the Nation’s top breeders who will offer some of the very best purebred and crossbred showpig prospects from across the country. Many pigs sold through the Extravaganza have not only gone on to be champions at all levels of competition, but have also proven to valuable investments in breeding programs for successful buyers. Be sure to take advantage of a great opportunity to purchase some of the very best showpigs offered during the 2014 spring sale season. For a complete schedule of the 2014 NSR Weanling Pig Extravaganza, visit the Shows & Events page on the new www.nationalswine.com.

Purebred Premiums

In order to recognize the success of youth exhibitors that choose to show outstanding purebreds, the National Swine Registry and it’s breed association’s offer many premiums at local, state and national events. Along with this, many state purebred associations support youth exhibitors with additional premiums at state junior shows.  To learn more about awards sponsored by purebred associations, be sure to check-out your youth show premium books.

    when does a weanling become a breeder (age), for example in a show/sale.

      Peggy,

      We don’t necessarily have a required age designation for classifying entries as weanlings. We recommend that weanling animals weigh between 40-70 pounds. Typically, weanling entries at the NSR Fall Classic will be farrowed in August or September, making them approximately 2.5-3.5 months of age.

      Most of the animals that are exhibited in our breeding hog events are 5-7 months old. We don’t have a minimum age requirement on animals that are shown in the breeding animal shows. However, each show will have a posted farrowing date that animals must be born on or after to be eligible to participate in that event.

      Thanks,

      Brian
