The 2020 Swine Spectacular will be on February 22nd in conjunction with the Iowa State Block & Bridle Spring Market Hog Show!

Registration for Swine Spectacular is open below!

Swine Spectacular is an annual pork education event for youth ages 8 to 18.  Each participant will receive a free t-shirt and compete throughout the morning to win various prizes.  Attendees can earn points in the following ways:  photo & essay entries (due Feb 10, optional), swine judging, a skill-a-thon, a written test and by attending the workshop.  Points are tallied up and the 5 youth with the most points in each division (junior, intermediate, and senior) are notified and they will then prepare for their interview/speech.  Awards follow when speeches and interviews are complete.  Swine Spectacular begins at 8:00 a.m. and awards finish up around 1:00 p.m., before the ISU Block and Bridle Club’s annual Spring Market Hog Show.  Links to more information and the registration form are below!
