2023 Lincoln - Logan County Pig Lottery

1.  Youth must be currently enrolled in 4-H in Lincoln or Logan County and compete at the County Fair. There will be a boarding option for the lottery pig for 4-H youth that do not have the facilities to house the pig (e.g., lives in town). Please contact the Extension Office if you are interested in this as space is limited and available on a first come/first serve basis. Youth participating in the boarding will still be responsible for the care each day and the expenses of the animal.

 2. Pigs will be placed in a separate Gilt and Barrow class of lottery only, not market.
