The University of Wisconsin-Madison Saddle and Sirloin Club is once again offering up to five awards of $100 each to first or second year swine project members.

The Swine Project Awards were introduced to help beginning 4-H or FFA members get started in the swine industry. To be eligible, an applicant must be a first or second year swine project member, be between 9-18 years old and a Wisconsin resident. The completed application is due postmarked on or before April 19.

The awards may be used for any expenses related to the recipient's swine project including the cost of pigs, feed, supplies, equipment, and facility maintenance. A member of the Saddle and Sirloin Club may contact the winners to monitor the progress of their swine projects. Winners may also be asked to supply a photo of themselves and their pigs for the Saddle & Sirloin Club's Annual Scrapbook.

The Saddle and Sirloin Club is comprised of University of Wisconsin-Madison students interested in the livestock industry. The primary activities of the Saddle and Sirloin Club are the Badger Kick-Off Classic Steer and Heifer Show, The Badger Bonanza Lamb Show, the Little International Horse Show, and Bucky's Spectacular Pig Show.
