Pig Challenge Program

2021 Challenge Off and Running!

1 of 12
The big event, in Seward, NE, on Saturday was not the Kentucky Derby. It was the "draw" for Individuals from Wyoming, Kansas, Colorado, and Nebraska for their 2021 Aksarben Challenge Pig. Zimmerman Hog Farms provided a high quality set of crossbred pigs for the young people to take home. This highly educational program allows these young people to learn about proper nutrition, management, health programs, and record keeping. They will communicate with their sponsor partners throughout the summer on their progress and exhibit their animal at the 2021 Aksarben Stock Show. At Aksarben they will also have an in person interview. Good luck to these individuals and their families. Great sponsors make this program possible.
