SHOWTIPS

                        Here you will find tips on selection,
                          feeding, fitting, and showing.




It is exhilarating to show a champion show pig. To reach that moment requires
many hours of hard work and love of your pig. Exhibiting a winning show barrow
or gilt comes after careful selection, a good home, a good feeding program, superior
fitting and showing, and lots of TLC.

Show pigs for the spring of 2000 will need to be selected in early fall, 1999.

Some of the things you need to look for are:
  Structural correctness
  Muscle mass
  Leanness
  Depth of body
  Length of body
  Frame size
  Soundness

Before purchasing your show pig, be sure you have an adequate size pen with
plenty of shade and protection from the elements. Your pig will need plenty of
fresh water and an adjustable feed trough.

Good luck selecting a quality show pig. Be responsible, learn something, and most
of all, HAVE FUN.

                                 PAIGE STEPHENS
                                   GRAHAM, TX

                                  LIFE’S BLUES

  “Low red!” the judge jelled.

     “Oh no!” I thought to myself. After all the hard work and time I had put into
  my pig, I was being classified as a “low red”. It was the Brenham Sift for the
  Houston Livestock Show, and I had fully expected to walk into that show ring and
  come straight back to my pen with the knowledge that I had received the coveted
  “blue” classification and was being sent on to Houston. Yet there I was stuck at the
  bottom of the stack. This meant that I had to show again. Out into the ring I went.
  I willed the judge to present me with a “one”; the number that would send me down
  the hill on my way to Houston. But for some reason he was holding up three
  fingers. I couldn‟t believe it! Not only had I been overlooked once, but twice he
  had dismissed me. It was at that moment I decided that I was going to make it. I
  would not let someone ruin everything that I had worked so hard to achieve. I had
  entered the ring expecting to make it to Houston, and to Houston I would go.

      Three hours later, with sweat and tears rolling off me, I saw the judge look at the
  only four animals remaining and then say, “How „bout we send these kids back
  down?” Exhausted, yet exuberant, I led my pig back to the pens. I made it!
  Through sheer determination and will power, I had decided that I couldn‟t be
  beaten. In life, I have been handed plenty of “low reds” and “threes.” It might be a
  test grade, a paper, or a project I spent hours preparing for; anytime when I felt I
  deserved more, yet received less. Whatever it may be, it is always upsetting to
  realize that I deserved a “blue.” Sometimes, whenever I have not exerted the best
  effort that I can, I remember what it was like when I focused all my energy on one
  thing, and overcame the odds. I truly believe in the cliché that people can do
  anything they set their mind to. I won‟t achieve instant success in everything I do, I
  will even fail miserably at times; that‟s life. However, I refuse to give up. Conrad
  Hilton once said, “Success seems to be connected with action. Successful men keep
  moving. They make mistakes, but they don‟t quit.” I have set many goals in my
  life, and reaching them will always involve obstacles. However there is no doubt in
  my mind that I can rise above any adversity in order to receive a “blue.”
