The MPA Youth Show Pig Circuit is designed to provide Junior Swine Exhibitors the opportunity to further their development of citizenship, leadership and sportsmanship and to reward Missouri youth for their participation and hard work in the statewide exhibition of swine projects.
The information contained on this page is a brief overview. To review the complete guidelines, please click MYSPC Guidelines 2018.
Changes to this Year’s Circuit
- MYSPC membership dues increased (see below).
- We have added Herefords as a separate breed in barrows and gilts. They will no longer be combined with the OPB class, as long as there are a minimum of 5 animals in the class.
Reminder on Purebred Papers Requirement
All animals entered in purebred classes are required to have registration papers or verification of registration by June 1. At this point, the animal will be shown as a crossbred until papers are provided. Papers MUST be faxed (573-446-2398) or e-mailed (firstname.lastname@example.org) to the MPA office by June 1. MPA will send the list of verified purebreds to shows after that date.
Membership is open to Missouri youth ages 21 and under as of January 1st of the current year. Membership dues are:
$30 – individual
$50 – 2 memberships in the same family
$70 – 3 memberships in the same family
4 memberships and above in the same family – $20 per MYSPC member
Members who sign up prior to April 17 will receive a t-shirt. Youth must be a member of the MYSPC before points begin to accumulate. Membership dues may be paid at sanctioned shows. There will be a 60% payback of dues. Prizes will be given out at the 2018 Missouri State Fair on Wednesday, August 8 during a lunch at the Pork Place.
There are 18 shows this year. Members will be allowed to count top points from 50% of these shows, or 9 shows.
