We would like to thank each of the breeders participating in the 2014 edition of the National Barrow Show® Hog College Row. We are excited about this year’s lineup and look forward to showcasing each of these individuals in the 3rd annual NBS® Home Run Drive on Monday, Sept. 8, in Crane Pavilion. Each of these boars and gilts will be offered for sale on Wednesday, Sept. 10, during the NBS® sale. Feel free to contact the breeders behind these entries along with the NSR Field Staff for more information on these individuals.
Pictures and updates will be added as soon as they are available.
