The Wastach County Junior 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 Junior Livestock program is for youth in grades
3-12, but not younger than 8 years old as of January
1st of the current 4-H year. In order to provide for the
safety and best interests of the participants, Cloverbud
enrollment (youth in K-2nd 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.
