Does your child like animals, but you aren’t ready to start your own livestock projects at home? The Yancey County 4-H Livestock Club has a great new opportunity for youth to learn more about livestock species, without having to own an animal! Join us on Monday, April 24th at 4:00 p.m. for an interest meeting about this club.

Livestock skillathon provides youth opportunities to learn about multiple livestock species and work with animals, but not have the large time commitment of owning and caring for an animal. Youth will compete as a team on a variety of livestock related topics. Some of these topics include anatomy and breeds of an animal, feed used in an animal diet, wholesale and retail cuts of meat derived from an animal, and production and management of animals. Livestock species studied include swine, sheep, goats and beef.

1st & 3rd Mondays of each month from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. @ N.C. Cooperative Extension, Yancey County Center. Additional farm days, clinics and competitions as announced!

Open to youth ages 8 and up!
