Electronic Field Trip to a Pig Farm

Learn about the swine industry without leaving your classroom. Students whose experience with pigs might consist of watching the movie Babe might be curious to learn what life is like on a pig farm. At BLT Farm in Hardin County, students learn what makes Kentucky so good for raising pigs and other livestock, what a typical day on a pig farm is like, how a veterinarian clips needle teeth, pig’s intelligence and behavior, and a little about the life cycle of swine. Collaboratively developed by KET, University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, and the Kentucky Farm Bureau.
