On April 23, 2016, Conecuh County 4-H hosted the Pig Squeal Show and Auction at Hillcrest High School in Evergreen, Ala. This was the first time for the event in Conecuh County. Thirteen participants received two 60-day-old feeder pigs in January and raised them for 120 days. Participants had the opportunity to develop swine management skills and an awareness of business management and learned how to raise a healthy animal for meat production. The day of the show and auction, participants competed in showmanship and weight class divisions.
The Alabama Master Naturalist program is a new statewide program whose goal is to help promote awareness, understanding, and respect of Alabama’s natural world among Alabama’s citizens and visitors. In addition, the AMN program will also develop a statewide corps of well-informed volunteers providing education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities.

Agri-tourism can take many forms. Roadside stands and farmers’ markets offer farm-fresh produce and interaction with growers. Farms may open to the public for wildlife watching and hunting. Ag tours, on farm bed-and-breakfasts, and dude ranches give tourists the fresh air, open space, and relaxation of country life.
U-pick operations, pumpkin patches, Christmas tree farms, hay mazes, farm-animal petting zoos, wine tasting, ag heritage museums, festivals, and fairs all attract visitors.
