The SWCC agricultural department held the 2013 Breeder’s Classic Sale on Sun., November 10, 2013. There were almost 200 people in attendance selling 26 head with an average of $1,646. Bred females averaged $2,340. There were more than 20 local consignors represented with over 50 area businesses and individuals sponsoring the event.
SWCC Ag Instructor Erika Blair said the sale provides great hands-on experiences for students, where they gain communication and marketing skills. "During the event, our students learn about everyday handling of the animals and gain tremendous exposure to the business side of agriculture," Blair explained. "It gives them opportunities to hone their communication skills with consignors and learn husbandry skills with the animals."
