The 2018 show marks the 11th year that either the grand champion or reserve champion market hog has been shown by one of the Jordans, and sometimes both titles.

This is also the fourth consecutive year for the Jordan siblings to sweep both the showmanship and market categories.

In 2017, Jacob Jordan held both grand champion titles, with Jenna Jordan as the reserve champion in both.

In 2016, it was Jenna Jordan who took top honors in both categories, with Jaycie Jordan being named reserve champion market hog showman and Jacob Jordan showing the reserve champion market hog.

For 2015, Jenna Jordan was named the grand champion showman, with oldest sibling Jackie Jordan being named the reserve champion showman. In the market hog category, it was Jackie Jordan being named grand champion and Jaycie Jordan being named reserve champion.
