NJSAWESTERN REGIONAL

Nov. 20-21, 2020

Reno, Nevada

Entry Deadline
OCT. 21, 2020

To the National Junior Swine Association Membership and Stakeholders: 

2020 has certainly been a trying and challenging year. COVID-19 has forced us all to be more flexible, patient and understanding. Similarly, making decisions based on the best interests of our membership is equally as challenging. We have made our best efforts to keep information as timely and transparent as possible. Moreover, we actively seek the most timely and accurate information before making decisions.

Given the current status of events and guidelines from local, state, and national officials, as well as information we have acquired over the last few weeks, we have made the decision to move the 2020 NJSA Western Regional. The 2020 NJSA Western Regional will be held at the Reno- Sparks Livestock Event Center in Reno, Nevada, November 20-21, 2020.

Here is some critical information:

  • Provisions will be put in place to allow for social distancing and safety protocols, not limited to limited numbers of attendees, early release of animals and the REQUIREMENT to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). If an attendee cannot wear a mask, a face shield will be required.
  • This show has one focus: providing youth the opportunity to exhibit their swine projects in a safe, live format.
  • As we all have learned over the last several months, plans change. We hope you will all join us for a fun event in Reno!
  • In closing, we all must be flexible and adaptable during these difficult times. Please be patient with others as organizations and individuals work diligently to find the best solutions and opportunities for youth exhibitors and breeders.

    Respectfully, 

    Ellen Knauth 

    Vice President of Operation,  National Swine Registry
