Making champions

... in and outside of the ring.

Swingin‘ S Farm is a faith-based nonprofit that provides free agricultural education to the youth of Helotes, Texas, and the surrounding areas.
Swingin‘ S Farms offers both monetary support and land to assist youth that would otherwise not have the ability to join these programs.

Swingin S‘ Farm hosts clinics with expert goat showman to teach participants how to bathe, groom, feed, brace, and show goats. Youth commit to feeding their animals daily and learn how to treat their goats if they come down with an illness, including how to administer vaccines, measure medications, etc. Swingin‘ S provides transport to and from shows, and makes prayer part of all clinics and shows.

The final show is Walter Gerlach Livestock Show in late January, and both the Grand Champion Commercial Goat 2020 and Reserve Champion Commercial Goat 2021 came from Swingin‘ S kids. Also, all Swingin‘ S exhibitors and their goats have placed at auction, resulting in great winnings for the youth.

Agriculture programs are a common way of life in Texas. Programs like 4H, Boy Scouts, and FFA are the building blocks that teach kids how to be responsible, patient, and set long-term goals. Ag programs teach youth to care for animals, groom them, feed them and exercise them. It teaches them to put in daily work for a future goal and save their money to prepare for the following year.

But often there is an initial investment to get started in these programs, not just monetarily, but also in the form of physical room and board for these animals. Yet, all children should be able to reap the rewards and benefits that Agriculture programs offer them, and this is where Swingin' S Farm steps in!
