Animal Science Virtual Summer Programming

Animal science ad with goats

Down on the 4-H Farm

This program will provide an overview of 8 different animal science categories:

  • cattle (beef & dairy)
  • companion animals
  • horse
  • poultry
  • small ruminants (sheep & goats)
  • swine

This is a fun learning experience allowing youth to learn about animals even if they aren’t raised on a farm. Youth will learn about where their food and byproducts come from. Youth will also learn about the companion animals that you can find in houses that aren’t on the farm.

Ages: 9-14, but will be a great fit for any youth with a beginner to intermediate level knowledge of animal science.
