Minimum Add-on amount is $100.00
Hi! My name is Anna Higginbotham and this is my pig, Ezmae. This is my first year raising an animal in FFA. I have been an animal lover all my life and I chose a pig because I thought it would be easy. I was wrong! Ezmae is smart, stubborn and has an attitude almost bigger than mine.
I chose this crossbreed because I felt she had potential from the moment I spotted her. I found out from my breeder that Ezmae’s dad was a show pig valued at $8,000.
I knew that FFA would be a challenge and that sacrifices would be made. No one prepared me for the cold barn and bathing a pig in the winter with cold water. Everyday has been a new challenge; from the heat lamp not working, and a water pipe busting in the pen. Learning to have patience and using communication helped a lot. I have learned that not everything goes by my plans and that’s ok.
The profit I make from Ezmae will go to my next FFA animal and savings for college. I will continue to increase my knowledge to help me in my future career as a Livestock Veterinarian.
