Hello, my name is Owen Bird. I am writing this to tell you a little bit about myself and my pig “Don,” Don is a Berkshire. This is my first year showing any animal and I am very excited to be showing my pigs. Raising and showing pigs is something I never would have seen myself doing. Thanks to Southern FFA I was introduced to the possibilities to expand my experience in a whole new work area. I have learned a lot about myself through FFA. It has been a very interesting 7 months with Don. He has had his ups and downs just as any animal would. It’s been hard to get him where he is today because he can be very temperamental . Though thanks to that I have worked harder than I ever thought I would. It’s been a learning experience and I have learned so much about taking care of pigs. Raising pigs is a lot of work and Don has come a long way.
