LIVESTOCK AUCTION PROJECTS
The 4-H Livestock Auction Project area includes meat goats, sheep, swine, and beef. Beef projects must be registered by January 4 and all the others at our mandatory weigh-in and tagging in June. Most of these projects end at the Delaware County Fair when the livestock auction is held.
Please call for more information or look under program registration/forms on this website to get an auction record form.
Did you know that people who do not live on a farm or do not have registered stock can still have a 4-H animal project? A program called "4-H Project Animal"; allows youngsters the chance to care for an animal and show it just as their own. Some restrictions do apply: a dairy animal has to be non-milking (any 4-Her who already owns purebred stock is not eligible). A 4-Her may designate only one non-owned animal as their project animal. 4-Hers are limited to showing this one animal in 4-H shows and classes. Request a "Non-Ownership Certification" from the 4-H office and sign up a new exhibitor. Project animals can be dairy, dairy goat, horse, sheep, beef, swine, and dog. For more information on this program, please call John at 865-6531.
