Clare County 4-H The 4-H Small Animal Showmanship Clinic is an opportunity for youth to learn, observe and prepare themselves and their project(s) for fair time.
Join other Michigan teens as they participate at 4-H Animal and Veterinary Science Camp this summer.
This goat showmanship clinic will explain how to show your goat. The program includes angora, dairy, meat and pygmy goats.
Join other Michigan youth to experience college life, learn new ideas, and build skills needed for future success. 200+ action-filled classroom & field trip sessions offered.
Michigan 4-H members have the opportunity to compete in showmanship and breed classes as well as pack, obstacle and driving.
This event includes contests in judging, quiz bowl, skillathon, creative writing and problem-solving.
Ever wonder why a goat has a beard?
Goats—dairy type, pygmy, Angora and Boer—make great 4-H projects. They are relatively easy to handle, interesting and inexpensive to keep. In addition to learning about traditional animal care in a 4-H goat project, you can explore the use of products that come from goats such as milk, meat and fiber. You also can participate in activities such as quiz bowl, skillathon and judging, that don’t require you to own a goat.
