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 two (2) non-owned animals as their project animal, but can only show ONE non-owned animal at the fair. Request a "Non-Ownership Certification" form from the Extension office and sign up a new exhibitor. Project animals can be dairy cattle, beef cattle, dairy goat, meat goat, sheep, swine, horse, and dog.
For more information on this program, contact John Hannum at 865-6531 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
