Livestock Club: What Should I Know?

What Do We Do?

  • Introduce members to the full scope of livestock educational opportunities.
  • Provide youth with opportunities to expand their current skills through livestock-related learning, teaching, leadership, community service, mentoring and competition.
  • Introduce novice 4-H youth to the fun and rewards of livestock projects.
  • Employ livestock as a means to help youth grow in the personal traits of integrity, teamwork, sportsmanship, patience and responsibility

What Will I Need? 

Animal ownership is not required. Members are encouraged to share their interests with others and participate in hands on learning experiences. The Livestock Club investigates animal health and nutrition, natural livestock care, practices dairy judging and evaluation and participates in numerous showing activities per year.

Time Commintment?

The club usually meets once a month on the first Tuesday of each month. Regularly attending meetings and attending one judging event & skillathon is a requirement to be a club member. Members can choose to participate in showing at district shows/KY State Fair each with specific time requirements.

 

What Should Parents Know?

Club meeting locations will vary. Some months the club will meet at the County Extension office and others at various farms for hands on experience with animals. Youth must be enrolled in Grayson County 4-H by January 31st to be eligible for livestock events.
