The Draft Virtual Sire Sale

Due to the cancellation of The Exposition, the National Swine Registry has created an online platform for membership to market Exposition-age boars. This is not a replacement for a live event in July, but an opportunity for breeders to market the animals they intended to sell the second week of June.

The NSR is excited to announce that The Draft Virtual Sire Sale Preview will take place Monday, June 8 on Walton Webcasting. The Draft Virtual Sire Sale will take place on Friday, June 12 on Showpig.com.  

This virtual event allows breeders to market their Exposition-age boars. Breeders are welcome to participate in The Draft Virtual Sire Sale, even if you did not initially enter for The Exposition. There is NO entry fee for this virtual event. The Draft Virtual Sire Sale is open to purebred and crossbred boars.
