Welcome to the 2015 edition of the National Swine Registry’s 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 4th annual NBS® Home Run Drive on Monday, Sept. 14 in Crane Pavilion. During the Home Run Drive, a three judge panel will collaborate to select an overall “Chairman’s Choice” from the eight boars and gilts representing their breeds. Their will also be a “College Choice” award presented to the exhibitors of the highest ranking boar and gilt based on the selections of the college teams participating. Awards will be presented to a community college and university judging team that aligns the Hog College entries closest to the committee’s final decision. This provides for a great atmosphere, while showcasing elite, foundation caliber genetics at one of the most prestigious venues in the purebred swine industry.
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.
