The content in this curriculum is designed to introduce youth to swine behavior, needs and care. Additional emphases include life skills and positive youth development. This is not a guide to raising swine for market or exhibition.
Target audience: Youth ages 9–11 with an interest in learning about swine but who may have limited or no experience raising livestock. Many of these youth may be new to 4-H and/or live in urban or suburban areas. It is not necessary for the youth to own a project animal to participate in this curriculum; however, the activities provide a broad introduction to the care of swine that would be appropriate for any youth interested in raising a swine as part of an animal science project.
