Impact & Accomplishments
Born in Tipton County, Indiana, William G. Nash was one of the nation’s top breeders of Hampshire and Yorkshire hogs.
He was either the sole owner or partner in three Specific Pathogen Free sow herds of Hampshires, Yorkshires, Landrace, and F1 gilts. In business with his sons, the Nashes also bred Dorset sheep and Standardbred horses in Sharpsville.
Nash judged swine and sheep, served on the board of directors of the Hampshire Swine Registry, and devoted time to many other livestock organizations.
