The Arizona National Livestock Show (ANLS) is pleased to announce the Swine Show will be a national affiliate show of the National Junior Swine Association (NJSA), the nation’s largest youth livestock association and the youth membership branch of the National Swine Registry (NSR) and Team Purebred, one of the fastest growing youth livestock organization in the nation.
The Arizona National Show is collaborating with the NJSA and Team Purebred organizations to offer a pedigreed barrow show, pedigreed breeding gilt show and a pedigreed breeding gilt Sale. Along with purebred classes, the ANLS will offer both crossbred barrow and breeding gilt classes, as well. In support of these additions, NSR will offer added premiums for purebred Duroc, Hampshire, Landrace and Yorkshire animals. Team Purebred will provide added premiums for Purebred Berkshire, Poland China, Chester White, Hereford/Tamworth (one division) and Spotted Swine breeds. NSR staff members and Team Purebred Leaders will assist the ANLS Swine Committee with event preparation and execution. NSR, Team Purebred and ANLS will provide new educational and entertainment activities to encourage personal growth and development among youth exhibitors participating in the event.
Nationally recognized Swine Photographer Steve Mapes of Ohio will be providing photography services for this important Show.
The Competition is open to youth from all 50 states. Both Shows are open to exhibitors that meet age requirements. All Junior exhibitors must be current members of NJSA or TEAM PUREBRED.
The partnership between the ANLS, NSR and Team Purebred will create new opportunities for youth to not only exhibit outstanding purebred swine, but also gain valuable life skills through competition and educational activities.
