Regional FFA Swine Proficiency finalists took part in a Minnesota Pork Board hosted Swine Indus- try Study tour earlier this summer. The tour stops included Newport Laboratorie s , Worthington; Chan- dler Feed and Grain, Chandler; Pipestone Systems, Pipestone; and John Morrell packing facilities in Sioux Falls, S.D. Tour participants were Jared Krieger of Kerkhoven, Kerkhoven- Murdock-Sunburg FFA Chapter; Molly Frank of Dexter, Spring Val- ley-Wykoff FFA Chapter; Adam ]ans of Fulda, Fulda FFA Chapter; Dan Larson of Medford, Medford FFA Chapter; Jay Staloch of Wells, United South Central FFA Chap- ter; and Erin Wicker of Kimball, Kimball FFA Chapter. Each participant earned a $250 scholarship for use towards their FFA swine project or post- high school education by submit- ting an essay on what they gained from the tour and how it applied to their swine proficiency area. To be accepted on the tour, the Regional FFA Swine Proficiency finalists submitted a letter of reference and completed an application. At Newport Laboratories, the FFA members learned about autogenous swine vaccines, which researchers formulate to meet health challenges of specific swine herds. The work at Newport Labo- ratories encompasses customiz- ing vaccines and combining sepa- rate vaccines into a single dose. The Chandler Grain and Feed tour included discussions on grain marketing and the science required to prepare feed rations for swine and other livestock farmers. Tour participants found the complexity and variations in feed rations an interesting aspect of swine production. While touring Pipestone Sys- tems, the FFAers learned about its unique business structure that allows hog farmers in Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota to remain independent by jointly owning sow facilities to assure a steady supply of high-health feeder pigs for their individual farms, in addi- tion to how they share services such as herd health and nutri- tional management. At John Morrell, the group learned about animal welfare practices incorporated into the delivering and unloading of hogs at the plant, the carbon dioxide euthanasia process, as well as the making of bacon and hams, prod- uct storage, shipment and food safety inspections throughout the process. Common amongst all partici- . pants' essays was an appreciation to meet other young people with an interest in swine production and the opportunity to learn more about the pork industry. 12 Week Weight Loss Competition ,WIN CASH!
