MI Pigs – Sanctioned Show Guidelines: 2023

  • Shows are open Michigan residents who are 3 years old by January 1, 2023, but not older than 21 as of January 1, 2023 are eligible to participate in the program. MI PIGS sanctioned shows must follow the age guidelines that will allow youngest (3 yrs. as of 1/1/23) or oldest (21 yrs. as of 1/1/23) MI PIGS youth to participate. (MLE age requirements are an exception). Shows should also welcome youth with a chronological age greater than 21 years of age who participate in 4-H or school activities with their developmental aged peers. (As recommended by the American with Disabilities Act).
  • Showmanship will be offered at every MI PIGS sanctioned show. (If offering an A&B ring, only 1 showmanship is acceptable). Exhibitors must show the animal they have registered at that show in showmanship to receive points. Showmanship divisions: Beginner 3-7 years; Novice 8-11 years; Junior 12 – 14 years; Intermediate 15-17 years; and Senior 18-21 years. Please review the MI Pigs rules closely to determine if your show needs to select 5 or 10 youth in each age division (determined by the total number of youth exhibiting at the show in showmanship). It is critical to record every youth that participates in showmanship, regardless of placing. Also please record youth that make a “call back” in their age division, as well as final placings.
  • Please include the MI Pigs logo and/or MI Pigs Sanctioned Show on your registration/rules information.
  • Consideration of the MI Pigs Code of Conduct should be considered during MI Pigs sanctioned shows.
  • To accommodate the MI Pigs: Top Pig program, it is important that EID tag numbers be recorded for each hog shown at your show.
  • MI Pigs may provide banners with sponsors. We ask that you post/hang these banners at your show
