The Walker County 4-H Program is currently making plans for the 2010 Lamb Project. Any local youth interested in showing a lamb this summer should contact the extension office to get all the details about this 4-H livestock project.
The project is available to students in the 1st – 12th grades. The participants in this 4-H project are required to purchase a lamb and take care of it at their home throughout the summer. While they are caring for their lamb, they get the opportunity to work with the lamb to get it prepared for the show ring. The participants will get the chance to show their lambs at a number of local shows in the late summer/early fall months before the show season ends with the state show at the Georgia National Fair in October.
The 4-H Lamb Project is a family-oriented activity where the 4-H members and their families get to spend time together working with and showing their lamb. Those considering getting involved in this project should contact the County Extension Office at 638-2548 to get more information about this upcoming 4-H livestock project.
