Slightly different schedule in the swine barn at the 2016 Ohio State Fair

Exhibitors need to be aware of a slight, but important, change in the Ohio State Fair Junior Barrow Show schedule this year.

“The crossbred barrows will show on Friday, Aug. 5 and the purebred barrows will show on Saturday, Aug. 6,” said Angie Barney, co-director of the Ohio State Fair Swine Barn. “In addition, for those youth that participate in the breeding gilt shows, they will be able to participate in the Outstanding Breeding Exhibitor program which is very similar to the Outstanding Market Exhibitor program.  If they choose to participate, they will need to participate in the Swine Skillathon program on Thursday, Aug. 4.”

Exhibitors are encouraged to closely monitor the show schedule and keep these dates in mind as the event approaches to keep the shows running smoothly.

“We are looking forward to a great year in the swine barn,” Barney said.
