-

Since its inception in 2000, the Buckeye Barrow Boosters has raised more than $500,000 to support Ohio’s junior swine showmen. The monies that the association allocates for the Swine Barn Sale of Champions are prorated according to the number of barrows shown in each breed division and, in part, have led to the increase in participation in many of the breed shows.

Congratulations to each of the winning juniors from 2018 and a sincere thank you to each of the members of the Buckeye Barrow Boosters for their continued support and understanding of Ohio’s swine industry. Any interested party is encouraged to join the Buckeye Barrow Boosters.
