Extension Swine Programs in Alabama

The Alabama swine industry has three major parts: commercial and contract; small scale and niche; and youth related projects. Each component is an integral part of the Alabama swine industry and sustainable Alabama agriculture. Commercial and contract production helps maintain important infrastructure. Small scale and niche production provides locally raised products and opportunities for small acreage farms. Swine projects provide Alabama youth with learning opportunities in production, food quality and safety, environmental stewardship, animal care and well-being, livestock evaluation and life in general.

Information for all aspects of production is available from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System.
