Abstract

In 2001, a pilot project was conducted that sold pigs from the Lauren Christian Swine Research and Demonstration Farm to area 4-H youth. Youth from six counties bought pigs that were farrowed at the farm in January and February. The objectives of making pigs available were:

  1. To help increase county fair swine numbers in selected counties.
  2. To increase the number of young people with swine projects in southwest Iowa.
  3. To help youth by providing a reliable, healthy, and high performing source of fairly priced pigs.
  4. To enhance education and project knowledge.
