Jr. Livestock


Jr. Livestock

The Utah 4-H Livestock Program is designed for those youth with interest in livestock and livestock events. The focus is to provide experiences that help these youth develop leadership, citizenship, self esteem, social skills and to become contributing members of society, as well as becoming better livestock men and women. The 4-H Livestock is an EDUCATIONAL, ACTIVITY-ORIENTED, AND FUN program for those who become involved.

The 4-H Livestock Program is for youth in grades 3-12, but not younger than 8 years old. This program is one of only a few 4-H Programs that does not include mini-4-H enrollment (younger than third grade) in order to provide for the safety and best interests of the participants. Enthusiastic 4-H Volunteers with expertise and interests in livestock and working with youth help to deliver and manage the program and its objectives.

The 4-H Livestock Program includes programs for those youth who own/have access to livestock and those who do not, but still want to learn about the science of livestock selection, care, and management. Activities can include everything from educational and fun club meetings, livestock shows and County Fairs, service projects, judging contests, and leadership opportunities. Club members hold club offices, give public speeches and demonstrations, do service projects, and spend time with their favorite friends, animal or human.

The Utah 4-H Livestock program is governed by the Utah State Junior Livestock Shows Association. All State sponsored shows are members of this association and help determine the rules and regulations to make this program work. These rules, as well as the show deadlines, locations, and schedules can all be accessed on this web site. We encourage all of you to get involved with this program as well as our other 4-H opportunities and programs by contacting your County 4-H Extension offices, or your local County Fair or Stock Show representatives.
