The 4-H-ers will grow out the pigs and compete with them at the Pike County Fair in October.

To do so, the 4-H’er will spend a lot of training time with their animal.Rolling said when the Pig Pen Project is completed in October, the 4-H’ers will have the option of keeping their pigs, dining on them or selling them. Published 3:00 am Wednesday, June 1, 2016 “We have a list of buyers who will buy the project pigs,” she said. “We are not requiring the 4-H’ers to sell their pigs. We don’t want to hurt the feelings of the those who want to keep their pigs as pets.”Emma and Ella Baker were overjoyed at the arrival of their pigs. Emma said she could hardly wait to get her pig home and begin a longtime friendship.William Morgan, Crenshaw County, picks up a pig for his sister Emily Ann Morgan who is participating in the Pig Pen program.“I love pigs and I’m so happy to have one of my own,” she said.Abby Garrett’s pig was bigger than she thought and not as cuddly but there was a nice, clean pen awaiting Waddles when he got home.But, a nice clean pen was not what Waddles had in mind. He bumped over his pan of water, made him a hog waller and he wallered.Abby said, at first, Waddle wouldn’t eat his feed. He would only graze. But now, he’s eating and wallering and, by all indications, Waddles is in hog heaven.Rolling said she expects all 4-H’ers to be successful with their Pig Pen Projects.“It’s going to be a good learning experience for all of them,” she said.The pigs arrived on Friday so there’s a good possibility the learning has already begun. Pike County Extension Coordinator Heath Wesley and Crenshaw County Coordinator Derek Bryan delivered 21 pigs to Cattleman Park Friday afternoon for pickup by 16 4-H’ers who will participate in the Pig Pen Project through the first week in October. Emma Baker and her pig formed an immediate friendship. The 4-H’ers are challenged with growing out their pigs while teaching their animals showmanship. The 4-H-ers will compete in the pig show during the Pike County Fair. Above, Emily Ann Morgan is participating in 4-H Pig Pen Project in a big way. She is raising two pigs rather than one. She is calling the pigs 1620 and 1611. She hopes that by giving her pigs numbers rather than letters, they will not have a tendency to “pen break.” Emily’s brother, William, will be her Man Friday on the project.As of Friday, the pig population in and around Pike County has increased by 21 Or, perhaps, the pig population of the local area is now 21. Either way, there are more pigs around these parts than there have been in several years, thanks to the 4-H Pig Pen Project.The pigs,  all 1,260 pounds of them, were delivered to Cattleman Park Friday after to a group of excited 4-H’ers from Pike and Crenshaw counties.Emily Rolling, Pike County 4-H foundation agent, said the pigs were delivered in good condition and given into the care of a group of very capable 4-H’ers.
