    21. 21. • ALL producers are affected by negative publicity concerning our food supply • Product safety can be compromised at any time in the food supply continuum Responsibility Citizenship Our Role in Food Supply Continuum
    22. 22. Our Role in Food Supply Continuum • Past failures in food safety process – Recalls, scares, contamination • Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) plans and monitoring now required by every packing plant, regardless of size - PREVENTION Responsibility Citizenship Trustworthiness
    23. 23. Our Role in Food Supply Continuum • Role of producer in providing packer with safe product – “On-farm HACCP” – Certain hazards occur before product reaches packer – Notify packer of potential hazards • Importance of record keeping – Medication use and storage Responsibility Citizenship Trustworthiness
    24. 24. ACTIVITY
    25. 25. The Impact of 4-H and FFA Projects • Reveal impact of 76,000 market projects
    26. 26. ACTIVITY 4 – What’s under that hide? Orange and Tin Foil
    27. 27. How many pounds of carcass are there? • Terms & Calculations: (1) Live Weight, (2) Dressing Percent, and (3) Carcass Weight Citizenship
    28. 28. Total Entry Numbers Market Swine: 32,617 Meat Goats: 32,821 Market Lamb: 11,438 Market Steers: 8,438 TOTAL: 76,225 Responsibility
    29. 29. What is Dressing Percentage? • Dressing Percentage = The percentage of the live animal that ends up as carcass (Carcass Weight / Live Weight X 100) – Pork: 73% – Market Lambs: 53% (shorn) – Meat Goats: 55% – Beef Cattle: 62% Responsibility
    30. 30. Dressing Percentage is Affected by: • Gut fill – The more gut fill at the time the live weight is taken, the lower the dressing percentage will be. • Muscling – A heavier muscled animal will have a higher dressing percentage than a light muscled animal. • Fatness – A fatter animal will have a higher dressing percentage than a lean animal. • Mud – Cattle with a lot of mud attached to their hide will have a lower dressing percentage than clean cattle. • Wool – Lambs with long wool will have a lower dressing percentage than recently-shorn lambs • Skin – In market swine, the skin is left on. • Stomach Type – Market swine are monogastics, cattle, sheep and goats are ruminants.
