Premier Breeder Program

The National Swine Registry recognizes that today’s young breeders are the future of the purebred swine industry. To support the continued growth of youth involvement in the production of purebred swine, the NJSA Premier Breeder Program was established.  This program is designed to acknowledge the achievements of junior members that are building breeding programs and exhibiting bred and owned gilts through NJSA events. Exhibitors of purebred bred and owned gilts can compete for the opportunity to earn $1,000 in buying credit towards NSR sales each year.

Mentoring Values People

Mentoring Values People is a regional mentorship program where older NJSA members serve as mentors to younger and/or first-time NJSA members. Starting the 2020-2021 show tour season, mentors will be matched with a protégé to “show them the ropes” of our events as well as being a familiar face for them to interact with on a show by show basis. If you are attending any of the of our regional events such as the Southwest Regional, Eastern Regional, Western Regional or Southeast Regional, you will simply indicate on your show entry form the following:

  • I am between the ages of 16-21 and would like to be a mentor at the NJSA event
  • I am 12 and under and would like to be mentored by an older NJSA member at the NJSA event

The NSR Director of Education & Outreach will pair mentors and protégés prior to the event being held.
