Reported by Amy Burgess

This year’s Northeast Alabama 4-H Pig Squeal Show and Auction was held Saturday, April 20, 2013 at the Sand Rock Livestock Pavillion.  Twenty two 4-H members from Cherokee and Etowah Counties received two fifty pound pigs in December and have been raising them since that time.  The program was designed for them to learn producJohnQuinn.jpgtion management techniques, fiscal responsibility and time management skills.  The project culminated on Saturday with the 4-H members bringing their best pig to the show and then to have it auctioned off for processing.  The average weight per pig was 298 pounds and the average price per pound received for the pigs was $1.33.  Below are the results of the show.  We would like to thank all of the auction buyers and supporters of this program.  Also, please join us in congratulating these hard working 4-H members:
