The Morgan County Jr. Livestock program is designed for those youth with interest in livestock and livestock events. The focus is to provide experiences that help these youth develop leadership, citizenship, self-esteem, social skills and to become contributing members of society, as well as becoming better livestock men and women.
The Jr. Livestock program is for youth in grades 3-12, but not younger than 8 years old as of October 1, of the current 4-H year. In order to provide for the safety and best interests of the participants, Clover Bud enrollment (youth in K-2 grades) are not eligible to participate in the Jr. Livestock Program. Enthusiastic 4-H volunteers with expertise and interests in livestock and working with youth help to deliver and manage the program and its objectives.
The Jr. Livestock program includes activities for those youth who own/have access to livestock. Activities can include everything from education and fun club meetings, livestock shows and the Morgan County Fair, service projects, judging contests and leadership opportunities.
