Premier Exhibitor Program

Driven by Breeders. Serving Youth. Promoting Texas.

The Certified Texas Bred Registry program was established to promote Texas bred and raised pigs.  With the help of the Premier Exhibitor program, the association can recognize and award those exhibitors who raise & show Certified Texas Bred pigs.

About the program

The Premier Exhibitor Program was created to recognize and reward youth for their accomplishments within the show ring with Texas-bred pigs. As part of the Certified Texas Bred Registry, the program is represented at all Texas major barrow shows (State Fair of Texas, Fort Worth, San Angelo, San Antonio, Houston, and Austin), as well as the Texas' Elite Showcase gilt show.

Through the program, youth can qualify for scholarship opportunites and potentially recieve additional premiums. In addition, unique recognition through social media and association events is included to honor our exhibitors on their achievements.

Our youth are our future. The Premier Exhibitor program strives to celebrate and encourage exhibitors as they experience the joys of showing pigs at Texas majors.
