NPPA-Sponsored Douglas-Sarpy County Lottery Pig Program Wraps Up

The Nebraska Pork Producers Association is proud to have sponsored the 2019 Douglas-Sarpy County Lottery Pig Program. The NPPA helped purchase pigs for urban youth 4-H exhibitors in the Papillion area. The program was designed to foster interest and increase youth involvement in the pork industry. Throughout the summer, the program included four educational meetings where the youth learned about nutrition and diseases in pigs, the importance of biosecurity, how to cook with pork, and the many different careers in the pork industry. They wrapped up the program at the County Fair where they got to show their pigs and celebrate their success.
