Swine Show

This show is one of the largest youth swine shows in Florida. The swine project teaches participants proper methods of selecting, feeding, and raising a project animal for the purpose of marketing that animal for sale.

Learning activities focus on these major concepts: selection, management, nutrition, meats, exhibiting, health, quality assurance, swine industry, environment, and careers.

Record keeping is an important part of the Swine Project and the swine business. Records are kept on the average daily gain,feed to gain ratio and type and amount of feed fed. Vaccinations and other herd health practices are noted.

As with all the animal projects in the SRF, a completed record book or summary sheet and show sponsor thank you letter must be turned in for an exhibitor to show his or her animal.
