4-H livestock and animal science programs have proven to be a highly effective aid in the development of youth into productive members of society. But this is just one of the benefits gained by participation in livestock and other animal science activities. A study conducted at Texas Tech University has identified several areas where youth have shown significant advancement in life skill acquisition. 

Increased levels of responsibility have typically been one of the key life skills identified in youth participating in local and state livestock programs. The Texas Tech study noted that there was also a significant growth in confidence, sportsmanship, compassion, commitment, leadership, knowledge, and care of animals, and social relationships and communications. Furthermore, a large percentage of participants stated that even though the project required hard work.
