The Team Purebred P.L.u.S. Program was instituted in 2011. M.H. Eby Inc. generously provides a one year lease on a trailer as the award for this program.
The annual program begins with the first show following the National Junior Show, which is currently the Eastern Regional. The program runs through the National Junior Show in Springfield, IL and the winner is drawn on Friday evening at the Family Fun Night & Awards Dinner.
The program is very simple. At check-in for each Team Purebred event, members will receive a ticket for each Team Purebred breed animal to be exhibited. It is the member's responsibility to fill each ticket out and return it to Team Purebred. The more animals a member exhibits the more chances he/she has. Tickets will also be given to members for each of the following contest they participate in: showmanship, skillathon, judging contest and the swine issues contest at the STC.

Winner of the Inaugural Eby P.L.u.S. trailer in 2011 was Reed Naughton, then age 5, of Atlanta, IL. Reed, along with his parents Dan & Amy Naughton, competitively show swine and cattle at many national shows. Their family opted to purchase the trailer at the end of their one year lease and continue to use it on a regular basis. They will forever be grateful to M.H. Eby Inc. for supporting Team Purebred!
