The adolescent students, ten in all, raised hogs, lambs and goats, to participate in this livestock event. It is the culmination of many months of hard work. The students learn first hand how to raise an animal, including feeding and health maintenance, while keeping detailed records of cost, rates of gain, etc. They also have to go out and market the animals, inviting their buyers to bid on their animal at the live auction. I am so proud of these students for their hard work and commitment. They won many ribbons: Grand Champion, Reserve Champion, as well as many Blue and Red ribbons. Well done Mountainside Livestock club!
