Swift County is fortunate to have strong livestock people and programs - please consider sharing your knowledge and talents with other youth/families!
The Swift County livestock board is seeking individuals, groups and/or families interested in hosting a workshop for a livestock species they are knowledgeable. The goal of this workshop is to cover topics:
- Daily feeding and care regimen
- Grooming, clipping and fitting
*Follow up workshops and mentors are strongly encouraged.
Interested in hosting? You set the date, amount of time, and schedule for the workshop (contact Becca). This can look anyway the host wants. One example could be, 4-H club tour meets, livestock demonstration. How do I know how many people to expect? The Extension office will handle registration and promotion. Have expenses or want to serve a meal? Let the 4-H Federation help! Have questions? Call or email Becca.
Our goal is to hold workshops for all of our livestock species throughout the 2022-2023 program year (beef, sheep, dairy goat, meat goat, swine, rabbit, dairy, rabbit, poultry).
Thanks for considering!
