    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 April 1, 2019 of the 4-H year.  No exceptions!

    This program includes activities 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.

     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.
