The history of showing pigs
Market classes
market classes are judged on how well the pigs are muscled with just the right amount of fat for better flavoring of meat and the pigs are placed from the best pig to the worst pig

The history
Pig shows started out on farms where the owner and other pig farmers would gather to decide which pig had the best qualities for breeding.

classes are divided up into three divisions Market hog, breeding gilt and showmanship
