One of the most popular of all 4-H livestock projects, swine (pigs) are intelligent, versatile farm animals.

  • In these projects become familiar with and apply the recommended principles of swine animal science. 
  • Gain knowledge of sound breeding, feeding and management practices. 
  • Develop integrity, sportsmanship, decision-making capabilities and public speaking skills by participation in demonstrations, tours and exhibits.

Breeding Swine

Own and care for one or more sows or gilts for at least 90 days before exhibiting.

Market Swine

Raise one or more barrows or gilts for market, exhibiting and selling at the fair.

Non-Animal Swine

Benefit from many aspects of a livestock project without actually owning the animal.

Some counties may have additional requirements. Contact your 4-H leader or UI Extension county office to learn more.
