Students from the Ag Science I and Animal Science classes at the Litton Agriculture Education Center were having a hands-on learning experience at the Litton Agri-Science Learning Center on February 13, 2013.  The students were learning about animal reproduction in class and then were getting to experience the real thing in person.  While at the Litton Center, the students watched the newborn baby pigs get an iron shot, ear notching, clipping tails, and cutting needle teeth.  The students during first semester were in charge of charting the heat cycle, expected pregnancy date, name of sire, and day of artificial insemination for some of the sows housed at the Litton Agri-Science Learning Center.
