Ken Luety farms with his wife Marcia in Clinton, WI. He has three children who have all been active in 4H and FFA showing animals. Ken grew up on a production swine farm and has bred and raised show pigs in the past. He thinks our youth have a great opportunity to get involved in the WSPA.

Courtney got started in the swine industry by default when she married Jayson. Together with the help of Jayson’s father Alan they run a 50 sow operation selling Durocs and Crossbred show pigs to kids throughout the country. She has only been apart of the WSPA for two years, but has loved every minute of it! Courtney is looking forward to serving the association and continuing to improve the experience for all members.
Director at Large- Cindy London
Cindy London, along with her husband, Todd, and their children, Lindsi and Tanner, became involved in the show pig industry in 2006. Her children started by showing at the local fairs but quickly became involved in the WSPA in the organization’s early years. The London’s have made many lifelong friends and met many breeders throughout the state due to their membership in the WSPA. Cindy loves watching how the youth (and the pigs) mature from the beginning of the show season to the end. She also enjoys welcoming new families into the organization. Cindy is looking forward to working with other board members, parents, and youth in making the upcoming show season one of the best yet!

There is no better way to spend quality time with your kids than with animal projects and the WSPA gives youth a great opportunity to meet, make new friends, learn from others and make lifelong connections throughout the state.

Youth Board Member - Hannah Wilke
My name is Hannah Wilke, I am a freshman at UWMadison currently majoring in Animal Science. I have been showing pigs for 9 years and have been in the Wisconsin Show Pig Association for 7. I am very excited to be on the youth board in order to become more involved in the association, meet new people, and make the best out of my last few years as a member. I wish to inspire other youth to strive to succeed and continue to bring great things to the swine industry.
Youth Board Member - Carly Myhre
Carly Myhre is currently a senior at Edgerton High School. She has been showing pigs for 5 years and has been in the Wisconsin Show Pig Association for 4 years now. Showing pigs has given her amazing opportunities to meet new people and learn new things. By showing pigs it has helped shape her into the individual that she is today. One of Carly's favorite things about the WSPA is that she has met new people and made many friends that have the same interest in pigs that she does. The reason she wanted to be on the youth board was to help the younger members and to teach them and others more about the swine industry.
Youth Board Member - Caitlyn Wileman
Caitlyn is currently 18 years old and a freshman at UW-Platteville studying Animal Science and Agriculture Business. She has been a WSPA member for 4 years and has exhibited at many local and state shows.
