Livestock Program Reminders:
Beef Sheep & Swine (Ages 8-18 as of 1/1/22): Youth members DO NOT have to
participate in the livestock auction project to show beef, sheep, or pigs at
the fair during 4-H shows. We have non-auction showmanship, market
classes, and breeding animal classes for each of these species. They are
a great way to learn how to raise and show livestock before jumping into the
auction program. To exhibit beef, sheep or pigs, youth members must complete
one of the specified education events for the livestock program.
Pre-registration in the form of a fair entry is also required by July
15th. Watch the June 4-H News for information and deadlines on fair
entries. Youth do have an opportunity to exhibit at the NYS Fair.
We have project learning materials available in the 4-H office on request.
