State Market Hog entries must be made on-line before midnight December 5 at:



There has been some confusion over PQA.  It is not required for the 2012 show. The requirement for PQA (Pork Quality Assurance training) was taken out of the rule book for the 2012 show and it does not appear on the on-line entry form for 2012.  The form that you print out from the site above after you have entered your data is correct.   Some of the worksheet forms that we sent out with ear tags still contain last years information.  If you are using handwritten copies  on older worksheet entry forms, you may cross out the part about PQA.


While PQA is not required, it is good information and I would recommend that you continue to use PQA materials it in 4-H and FFA programs.
