The Swine Project is an excellent way to learn about the pork industry. Through this project, you can learn about all aspects of the pork industry, either by directly caring for a hog or by learning about swine. At any level you may enroll in market pig or breeding pig. Youth wishing to enroll in Market Swine or Breeding Swine must also be enrolled in Level 1, 2, or 3.
If you enroll in the independent study, you are expected to have already completed the three levels of the swine project and to have set some learning goals for your independent work.
