On February 10th, Dr. Loni Lucherk, Assistant Professor of Animal Science, and
Dr. Kevin Williams, Associate Professor of Agricultural Education, took six graduate students and eight undergraduate students to the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo Skillathon Competion to help manage the swine Skillathon show. Eighty-three participants raned from 8 to 18 years old.
“The Swine Skillathon is a knowledge-based competition designed to enhance the educational experience of exhibiting swine by incorporating production and industry perspectives for the Texas 4-H and FFA exhibitors. Contestants will be challenged with questions, skill stations, and a public speaking component encompassing various facets of the swine industry. This contest is designed not only for those exhibitors who exhibit swine projects, but also those students who simply have a strong interest in the swine industry. Exhibitors compete in age divisions Junior, Intermediate, and Senior with the subject matter tailored for that age group.” Well done!
