Herdsmanship Info

We are reaching out with a change to this year’s Herdsmanship program at fair. We would like to start by giving June Castillo and her team a huge thank you for all the work they have put into Herdsmanship over the last several years. Unfortunately, this year June has decided to step back from leading it up, and we have not been able to find anyone else that would like to pick up the torch./p>

Both 4-H and the Livestock committee feel Herdsmanship is too important just to let go of it so we sat down last night to brainstorm how we can make it a vibrant program this year at fair. The plan we settled on is as follows:

Herdsmanship is going to transition from a club award to individual awards. Superintendents of each animal species will monitor the barn throughout the day and take note of youth that are going above and beyond to maintain their animal’s well being, helping other 4-Her’s, and keeping the barn clean. Each evening superintendents will select one 4-H member from Each animal species (Beef, Swine, Sheep, and Goats) to win that day’s award. The award will be hung on the youths’ pens for them to find the next day and the results will be shared out on the barn board.

We know this is a big change, but we also think it will be an exciting way to shake up Herdsmanship and highlight youth that work their tails off throughout the fair week.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the extension office and finish up those fair projects.
