Ohio Summer Show Circuit exhibitors were recognized at the Ohio State Fair.

The Ohio Summer Show Circuit, a new youth program of the Ohio Pork Council, worked to provide the best atmosphere for competitive swine shows during the first year in 2015. It is, by purpose, a competitive program that promotes the advancement of Ohio’s show pig industry through providing consistency and continuity to a show circuit, tools to increase exhibitor knowledge and education, and opportunities for personal development in youth swine exhibitors.

The program launched on May 16 in Washington Court House at the first show in a series of seven weekends. OH-PIGS sanctioned shows took place at multiple locations throughout the state, as part of the circuit that ran through the end of June. Here are some of the results from the show series.
