Abstract

The Swine Teaching Farm provides swine and facilities for teaching support of over 15 courses each year. Students learn the entire breadth of the swine industry from breed identification in introductory classes to enterprise management and swine production systems. The farm hosts annually an extensive number of tours for local grade schools classes, 4-H and FFA clubs, and international groups. Hogs from the farm are shown and sold successfully in major national events.
