The show day comes after a long build up. Months of interacting with the pigs and training them to walk have to be undertaken before they are ready for the ring.
The pigs are led with a stick and and big board which allow the pig to be gently guided around the ring. A female (Gilt or Sow) is led by just one person however a boar (Male) must be led by two people as they are a little more excitable.
The whole process is obviously very tiring for the pigs!!!
