Peter The Swine Supreme Exhibitor

Brayden Peter of Howards Grove is the 2023 Wisconsin State Fair Swine Supreme Exhibitor. The Supreme Exhibitor award is based on a junior exhibitor’s overall achievements at the 2023 Fair from points earned participating in the Junior Swine show, Quiz contest, Communication contest and Showmanship.

Peter has met many amazing people while exhibiting as a junior and open show exhibitor over the past six years. He is currently a college sophomore furthering his education at UW- Platteville. After college graduation, he would like to pursue a career in the ag industry. Peter plans to continue to grow his show pig operation and exhibit his pigs at state and national shows.

When asked about a favorite memory, Peter said it was from this past year when “I was honored to show the Supreme Champion Breeding Gilt of the Junior Show. It was a huge accomplishment and very rewarding. All of the long nights and early mornings paid off. The sweetest part about this victory was that the gilt was bred and owned. I was able to raise her from day one.”
