Ensley Clark

Ensley Clark and Jiggie at The Pennsylvania Farm Show

Jiggie is an intelligent Crossbred Bluebutt show pig owned by Ensley Clark, a junior at Trinity as well as president of the FFA program. Clark has been showing livestock since she was eight years old. Now she runs a show pig business with her dad, called  “Clark Show Pigs,” where she shows multiple types of pigs including Crossbred hogs, Purebred Duroc, Berkshire, Hampshire, and Yorkshire pigs.

She explained, “Showing livestock takes a lot of hard work and dedication, just like any other sport. Countless hours spent working with your animals, making sure they are fed and watered properly, and keeping up on their health, are just a fraction of what is required to raise a market animal. All pigs are very smart and develop amazing personalities.”

Earlier this month Clark and Jiggie went to the The Pennsylvania Farm Show on January 3- 8 and won fourth place as well as Master Showman.
