A few new things for our sale this year:
**Mooreman's ShowTec Feed Seminar, our friends from Premeir Ag have joined up with the folks from Mooreman's ShowTec feeds to put on their feed seminar for all 4-H and FFA exhibitors, leaders and parents. We are excited to have them and this is a great seminar to learn feeds and feeding of your swine and sheep projects.
**New format on the field day that we have had the last several years. We are setting up stations and dividing participants into groups which will rotate through the stations. Some of the stations we will have set up are Pork carcass and cuts of meat, carcass grading. A ear notching station to learn how to notch ears and read ear notch numbers. A station for giving shots, syringe and needle size, techniques in administering shots etc. A station with a Veterinarian explaining use of antibiotics and vaccines used in the swine industry. A fitting station for use of clippers, blades and techniques for fitting of your showpig project. A showmanship station to learn what to use, how to prepare your project and answers to give. A station for project selection, breeds and what to look for in selecting your project. These will be hands on stations as much as possible with prizes to win at each station!
**We will also have a couple of booths set up for "Blonde Salvage" , Karalyn's talent's in designing custom made signs is outstanding, you will need to check them out! The other booth is our good friend Barbie Jamrog and her steer head designs which are absolutely beautiful.
