Behind the Banner with Averey Rash

Name: Averey Rash

Hometown: Kewanee, IL

Future Plans: To become a veterinarian.

How did you start showing pigs? I started showing because my dad told me that it would be fun.

What were your feelings when exhibiting in the champion drive at the World Pork Expo?
It made me nervous to be in the grand drive, but it was fun. It felt like it was an hour long. I was emotional, but tried to hold it in.

What advice would you give to other Jr. Exhibitors?
To never give up, try your best, and listen to the adults around you. Always have fun and remember that every choice that you make can change things in the end.
