29 Youth Weigh 161 Swine for Derby Show at County Fair

On April 12 twenty-nine Clayton County 4-H and FFA members weighed in 161 head for the 2014 swine derby show at the Clayton County Fair. This county fair competition uses the rate-of-gain and lean-gain-per-day along with visual appraisal by the judge for evaluation. There is also a non-derby division in which 4-H and FFA members can participate in Clayton County. Those pigs are not weighed in April, but do need to be identified with official ear tags by May 15. The tags are available for purchase at the Extension Office in Elkader. The 2014 Clayton County Fair Swine Show will be Saturday, August 2.
