Pigs, People and Perseverance – All for One Swine Show at the Wisconsin State Fair
August 4, 2017
Yesterday I had the honor of attending the All for One Swine Show at the 2017 Wisconsin State Fair. Youth and teens with an intellectual disability had the opportunity to show a pig and be paired with at least two youth mentors and pig to use for the show.
All for One participants had the opportunity to gain the real-life experience of showing a pig. Everyone had a blast learning about their pig. From naming, brushing, and learning how to walk their pig, each and every person in and outside the show ring had a smile on their face.
Each participant left with a t-shirt, animal brush and a purple ribbon. These types of events prove that farmers and agriculturists across this great state deeply care about their community. Agriculture truly unites us all!
