Can you please forward this to the FFA List.






As of this morning I have not heard from the groups listed below concerning penning for the 2013 Jr. National Swine show. If your group is listed below, please contact me with the number of pigs that you will be bringing (NOT THE PENS YOU THINK YOU NEED), so that I can get you on the list.  If your name is on the list and you have previously sent me information, please send it to me again.  If your name is not on the list then I have had someone from your group or county contact me concerning your group.  If you think your group should be on the list and it is not, please email me your information and I will correct my list.


As it stands now, we will be able to assign pens prior to the show.  Currently we are anticipating one of the largest shows we have had in several years and we will be extremely tight on pen space.  Right now we need to pen 2.2 pig/pen, so please plan on bringing dividers and understand that there may be a few cases where there will need to be 3 pigs in a pen.  We will be working with the National Fair Grounds to see if we can get a few more pens, but right now we are limited to 836 pens for approximately 1800 pigs. While I have not started assigning pens yet, I believe that the requests that I have for the Sheep/swine 2, (lower, new) barn will fill it.  


I hope to be sending out the pen assignments on Monday, February 18.  If the numbers you have sent me change between now and the 15th, please let me know.  The more accurate numbers we have the easier it will be to accommodate everyone’s needs. 


If you plan on participating in the Herdsman competition, please let me know.
