The Washington County Fair Swine Committee is offering a production barrow division again for this year’s county fair tomorrow.  This is an opportunity for those in 4-H to show production barrows at the Washington County Fair says Amy Green, 4-H and Youth Coordinator with the Washington County Extension.  She says a beginning weight will be taken for them, weighed again during the fair this summer and they will take a rate of gain on the hogs.

Green notes up to six hogs can be entered and they cannot weigh over 45 pounds.  The barrow weigh in will be tomorrow from 10:00 to 11:00 at the Washington County Fairgrounds.   To find out more information regarding the production barrow weigh in, contact the Washington County Extension.
