KEYSER - The annual Mineral  FFA Chapter Ham and Bacon and Egg Auction is a way to showcase FFA member’s agricultural enterprises and provide an opportunity for students to produce a value-added agricultural product auctioned off to consumers.
With  support from the start, the event has flourished and has become an extensive event for the FFA students and the community
FFA members involved with the event see the entire process all the way through. The students purchase feeder pigs and provide the animal with feed and water until they reach the ideal market weight. The market hogs are then slaughtered at an inspected facility and students receive the carcasses back to process at the Mineral County Technical Center into retail cuts. The hams and bacons are cured with a dry cure mix, trimmed, and smoked and sold to the highest bidder.
Upon request, purchased hams and bacons are sliced and vacuum packaged for the buyer as well in the school's meat processing facility.
The mission of FFA is to provide premier leadership, personal growth, and career success.
