My name is Ethan Scofield and I am 16 and a Junior at Southern High School. This is my second year showing market hogs with the Southern FFA chapter. I am raising two cross burrows (castrated males) who are litter mates, one I have named Napoleon and the other is named Neapolitan. So far though my FFA experience I have learned the importance of communication and community outreach, I have also learned and realized how proud it can make someone to raise livestock naturally without any added hormones, steroids, or unnecessary antibiotics. I raise my pigs at the Rockhold Barn on Sudley road in West River, Maryland. I feed them Sunglo feed rations with varying levels of protein depending on the stage of life the pigs are in throughout their entire life.
This year I got to experience shows outside of the county and the opportunity to attend a showmanship clinic.
When I am not tending to my pigs, I am working on my Eagle rank in boy scouts, practicing for the agricultural mechanics competition at the national FFA convention, or practicing for the various other events I participate in . I also enjoy hiking and camping as well as reading books and watching classic films and creating art of all mediums.
Additionally i would like to thank my Family and fellow club members and peers from school who have supported me endlessly and answered all my innocent, ridiculous, and frustrated questions.
