Showing livestock increases youth responsibility, integrity, record keeping and leadership skills. In addition to the basics of livestock husbandry, a study by Texas Tech University validated the perceived benefits of livestock exhibition. The most important life skill developed was social relations. Character development was a close second and responsibility, confidence and sportsmanship were other life skills that showing livestock can foster and cultivate in youth.
After a highly successful year, 307 Livestock Camp organizers are excited to see how the camp will grow and evolve over the next few years. Generous donations from local businesses helped to keep the cost low for attendees and contributed to the great success of the camp. The 2018 camp is scheduled in Crook County in early June. Please contact the Extension Office at 283-1192 with any questions about 4-H or how you can help with future camps.
