4H livestock club kids holding baby chickens

Do you have a youth interested in animals but don’t know where to begin to help them pursue their interests? Check out the Intro to Livestock 4-H special interest club. This group will meet several times throughout the months of January and February with a series of meetings and hands-on workshops.

Kids ages 8-13 will get the chance to work with animals, such as goats, horses, and chickens, as well as learn about proper care and handling, breeds, equipment, and much more. This club is for those who don’t have much livestock experience or knowledge and serves as a great starting point before branching out into other livestock activities or just as a chance to learn more about animals.

Meetings will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6–7:30 p.m. at the Ag Center, located at 3230 Presson Rd. Monroe, NC 28112. The first meeting is on Jan. 14, 2020. Workshop dates are to be announced but will be held during the day, either on a Saturday or a teacher’s workday.

For more information, contact Rachel Owens, Livestock Agent, at 704-283-3739 or Please register online by Jan. 10.
