4-H Junior Livestock
Each year over 300 of Morgan County youth participate in the Junior Livestock Program raising market animals for the County Fair. The youth learn essential life skills like responsibility, compassion, and the humane treatment of animals. They learn cooperation, leadership and community service through participation in 4-H clubs or FFA.
The Junior Livestock program is for youth in grades 3-12, but not younger than 8 years as of October 1, of the current 4-H year. In order to provide for the safety and best interest of the participants, Cloverbud members (youth in K-2 grades) are not eligible to participate. Youth must be enrolled in 4-H or participating in the FFA program at Morgan High School. Registration deadline is March 31st of the 4-H year. No exceptions!
This program includes activites for those youth who own/have access to livestock. Activities can include everything from education and fun club meeting, livestock shows and the Morgan County Fair, service projects, judging contests and leadership opportunities.
**NEW THIS YEAR** Youth must "register for a livestock project" by "registering member in an event" through 4-H Online. Youth will then pay the $10 for a Livestock Project.
Enrollment & Payment is completed online through ut.4honline.com ($20.00 fee). Or pay in the 4-H office with a check.
