UW sets market hog, lamb sale

4-Hers and FFA members have opportunities to buy market hogs and market lambs at the UW Pig and Lamb Sale on April 20.

The sale, through the Laramie Research and Extension Center, is 1 p.m. at the Cliff and Martha Hansen Teaching Arena approximately three miles west of Laramie on Highway 230.

About 75 market hogs and 15 market lambs are expected. All are University of Wyoming animals.

“The sale is an opportunity for 4-H and FFA members locally and regionally to buy pigs and lambs at an affordable price,” said Doug Zalesky, LREC director. “There are not a lot of places locally or even regionally to buy pigs and lambs for projects. We hold the sale to provide an option to the kids who want to have a quality project at an affordable price.”

Most of the proceeds go back into the LREC livestock account used to buy semen and boars or rams used to produce next year’s animals, he said.

Some of the proceeds are provided to student organizations or teams that assist in sale preparations. The Block and Bridle Club in the Department of Animal Science is assisting this year.
