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 2017.
Changes to this Year’s Circuit
- Showmanship Exception: When two shows are held on the same day in the same location, only one showmanship event is required. See below for scheduling details.
- Ring A – Begin with Showmanship, followed by Crossbred barrows, Berkshire barrows, then work through remaining purebred barrows alphabetically ending with Yorkshire barrows. Pick Top 5 in barrows. Next, start with Crossbred gilts, then Berkshire gilts and move through alphabetically to Yorkshire gilts. Pick Top 5 in gilts.
- Ring B – Start at the same time as Ring A Crossbred barrows (after showmanship). Begin with Berkshire gilts, working through the alphabet and ending with Crossbred gilts. Pick Top 5 in gilts. Next, start with Berkshire barrows and work through alphabetically ending with Crossbred barrows. Pick Top 5 in barrows. (No Showmanship in Ring B.)
- MYSPC members must exhibit their own pigs to receive points.
- Show Stock Outfitters is a major sponsor of the MPA Youth Show Pig Circuit. Therefore, sanctioned shows must allow Show Stock to attend the day of the show, in addition to any other show supply companies.
- MYSPC members will be considered junior members of the Missouri Pork Association.

MPA will send the list of verified purebreds to shows after that date.
