How Do Winebarks Spell Hog Championship?
Lancaster Farming Staff
non Co.) Janine Winebark took
along the two “D’s” to the fair
her two hogs, a light heavyweight
Hampshire/Berkshire gilt' named
Danielle and a purebred Duroc
barrow named David—hoping for
the best.
“Best” was spelled with a “D,”
indeed, as 235-pound Danielle
won supreme market hog on Mon
day at the Lebanon Fair Swine
(And Ejavid did well too, earn
ing first place in his class in the
breed show.)
Janine, 10, daughter of Ken and
Janet Winebark, Myerstown,
obtained the gilt out of a boar from
the herd of Gary Winebark, Rossi
ter, Indiana County. Another
offspring of the same boar won
champion and reserve at the Jeffer
son County Fair several weeks
ago, according to Ken Winebark.
Janine, who will attend fifth
grade at Jackson Elementary in the
fall, won champion Duroc last year
at the fair. She also won supreme
champion junior market hog at the
state Farm Show in January.
Janine’s father said that the only
connection with the Farm Show
champion is that they’re both black
and white.
This is Janine’s second year of
showing and first Lebanon Fan-
A2i pound Hampshire/Duroc crossbred gilt, nicknamed “Danielle” from the light
heavyweight division of the Lebanon Fair Swine Show was picked supreme champion
on Monday. Second-year exhibitor Janine Wlnebark, right, daughter of Ken and Janet
Winebark, won the honors from show Judge Henry Holloway.
Jenny Arnold, right, won reserve champion overall hog at the Lebanon Fair on Mon
day with this 263-pound purebred Duroc. At left Is show Judge Henry Holloway.
Janet Winebark said that her
kids decided to name the hogs with
names beginning with “D” in hon
or of David Holloway, from which
the family obtained David, the
Duroc. “lite kids like doing dumb
things like that,” said Janet.
For the Keystone International
Livestock Exposition (KILE)
competition, of which the Wine
barks plan to show in October, die
hogs are named in honor of Bibli
cal Easter characters, such as
“Bartholomew” and “Peter,” said
Janet. (Though it was hard for
Janine to recall “Bartholomew,”
according to Janet.)
The Winebarks will be showing
hogs at the Southeast Market Hog
Derby at the fairgrounds this
month and at the Maryland State
Fair in September, in addition to
KILE and the state Farm Show.
Judge Henry Holloway, a York
shire breeder from Darlington,
Md., said the competition con
tained the “highest quality set of
hogs I’ve seen at a show” and
expressed his difficulty in deciding
between Janine’s belted black and
white hog and the red Duroc
shown by Jenny Arnold. In the
end, while the Duroc was the finest
“long-bodied, sound, correct, and
lean hog” in his view, the black
hog showed the “heavy muscling
and extreme leanness” required by
the industry.
Showmanship champions at the Lebanon Fair were, from left, Justin Lehman,
reserve 4-H champion; John Rlsser, champion FFA; and Jamie Risser, reserve
champion FFA and champion 4-H.
Jenny Arnold, 18, daughter of
Larry and Donna Arnold,
Womelsdoif, won reserve champ
ion overall hog at the Lebanon Fair
on Monday with her 263-pound
Try D,
purebred Duroc. The hog was
obtained from her father’s herd.
Kevin Sellers. 16. son of Ken
and Karen Sellers, Lebanon,
showed the reserve market hog.
Hank, at the swine show on Mon
day. Kevin, a sophomore at
Annville Cleona, a Little Dutch
men FFA member, purchased
Hank at a sale by Leon Arnold in
April. Kevin said that he simply
picked the hog from the sale, indi
cating he didn’t know for sure if
the hog could be competitive. This
is his only show this year, the sec
ond year he has shown at the fair.
Jenny Arnold won the champ
ionship of the Duroc class. York
shire champion was Jamie Risser,
