Event Details

Swine projects are excellent for 4-H members because pigs are trainable and young people can work with them easily. 

Advantages of the swine project include:

1. small initial investment;

2. quick turnover of return;

3. small space requirements;

4. training in selection, feeding, management;

5. relatively inexpensive housing and equipment for the beginner;

6. possibliltiy of expanding the project into a profitable enterprise;

7. understanding of animal needs and welfare.

The PQA (Pork Quality Assurance) certification program is to help youth pork producers understand the role they play in the food supply continuum.  We discuss the importance of food safety, swine well-being, good production practices, diseases, violative drug residues just to mention a few.  We want to help the youth have not only an educational experience, but also a positive experience in raising their pigs. 

4-H is proud to welcome presenter Heather Christensen from the Utah Pork Producers (435) 773-3551.

There is no fee but registration is required to attend this 1 hour workshop.  Please bring your printed ticket with you.

This event is open to youth ages 8 and in 3rd grade or older as of January 1, 2013.  Parents are invited and encouraged to attend. :)
