20 students (ages 2-18) exhibited 32 hogs in the Toombs County Local Hog Show on February 13 at the Toombs County Ag Center.  The competition began with showmanship, which is where the judge watches how the students exhibit their animals. Following showmanship, the competition moved into weight classes where the judge was looking at the animal and how it is put together (conformation), how it moves, and the amount of muscle. There were 5 weight classes, and the top from each class was brought back out for the final drive where a grand, reserve, 3rd, 4th and 5th place hog was selected. Just prior to the final drive, a new event was showcased - an adult showmanship competition where 10 adults from the school systems and community competed for top showperson.  Mrs. Tonawanda Irie (Toombs County Schools) placed first and Jason Colbert (Community Hospice) placed second.
