All Things Animal Science Informational Workshop

— Written By and last updated by

There are a number of benefits gained by participating in youth 4-H Animal Science activities. To list just a few, youth participants learn responsibility, decision-making skills, animal care, communication, financial management, record keeping, and improve their overall self confidence. They can also earn medals, ribbons, trophies, and sometimes even monetary awards all while having loads of fun!

Because of this, Currituck County 4-H and Camden County 4-H are joining forces on November 21, 2016 at the Camden County Senior Center located at 117 NC Hwy 343 N, Camden, NC to present an informational workshop covering all things to know about “4-H Animal Science”. We will explore the world of 4-H animal science from horses, sheep, and pigs to chickens, turkeys, and rabbits, and everything in between! There are many different opportunities for participation in the animal science program including: livestock shows, skillathon, animal judging, and animal photography to only name a  few.

One of the main focuses of this workshop will be the 2017 Albemarle Area 4-H Livestock Show and Sale being held April 25-26, 2017 in Elizabeth City, NC. Activities include the show and sale of market lambs, goats, hogs, and steers, as well as, a youth livestock judging competition. We will also cover rules, requirement, and deadlines for the show during this upcoming information session. If you are interested in your child participating in the 4-H Livestock Show and Sale or any other animal science project, please consider joining us to at this workshop to learn all about it! Register online.
