Hopefully everyone that participated in the festivities in Des Moines and Louisville has now had a chance to recover and catch their breath. We would like to thank all the exhibitors, breeders and buyers that made the 2013 summer show season one of the most successful in history. It is an exciting time to be in the purebred swine industry and we continue to see increased participation at NSR events. As we begin the State Fair season here in the Midwest, we would also like to remind breeders about the National Barrow Show® which will take place in Austin, Minn., September 8-11.

This year the Foundation Female comes from a herd that needs no introduction to the Hampshire breed. Early in the spring Jesse Heimer of Heimer Hampshires was approached about donating a gilt to be offered as the Foundation Female. Jesse without hesitation agreed to provide this gilt, however he wanted to put a spin on things. This year the NJSA will be offering a bred gilt from the heart of the Heimer Hamshire herd.
Now during this entire process, Jesse had one stipulation that we make this about the NJSA and the kids, but I would be remiss if I didn’t say a thing or two about Jesse. Jesse was one of the instrumental individuals in developing the NJSA program. He served on the original steering committee that truly shaped the NJSA into what it is today. Jesse has continued to support youth development by sharing his time and knowledge.

On my way home from Des Moines I can’t help but reflect on what a incredible week we had at the World Pork Expo. Not only did we have a record number of junior exhibitors but we had a one of the highest grossing sales in NSR history. If this past week didn’t get you excited about our industry then you need to check your pulse!
I wanted to take the time to not only congratulate the junior exhibitors for their accomplishments, but also praise the breeders for bringing out one of the deepest sets of breeding stock that have been exhibited and sold in recent history. I believe that we ran some true herd sires through the ring on Saturday and I can only say that the sale averages speak to the quality of this set. Be sure to check out the NSR website for full details on where these [ … ]
