Southeastern Alabama Pig Squeal Show and Auction

Are you looking for locally produced, well cared for hogs for the freezer? Do you enjoy seeing youth working with animals and learning to run a business? Would you like to support Alabama’s budding farmers and young entrepreneurs?  Come join us Saturday, May 14, at the Coffee County Farm Complex in New Brockton to do just that! The Southeastern Alabama Pig Squeal Show and Auction will showcase 27 4-H members from Barbour, Coffee, Covington, Dale and Geneva counties who have been working since January, raising market hogs, which will be available to purchase at the auction. There will be processors present at the auction; no person will need to take possession of a live pig. You will be able to arrange further details with the processor you choose. Our youth have worked very hard and we are excited to see their progress. Please come join us in supporting them!

The Hog Show will begin at 10 am, and youth will be judged on their showmanship skills including presentation and control of the animal. The auction will begin at 3 p.m.. The Coffee County Farm Center is located at 1055 McKinnon Street in New Brockton, AL.  For more information, please call the Extension office at 334-222-115, Covington County 4-H Agent, Catherine Estis at 334-343-4246 or Katie Lee, Regional 4-H Foundation Agent for Covington and Crenshaw counties at 334-368-1394.
