4-H Youth Development - Animal Science

Animal Science

Youth can enjoy animal-related projects that enhance knowledge and skills in animal science.  These projects also encourage personal development and increase life skills. The 4-H program has active programs for youth interested in dogs, rabbits & cavies, dairy & beef, sheep, goats, swine, poultry, and horses. There are many possibilities and opportunities for youth interested in Animal Science.  These opportunities are for everyone, whether you own an animal or not! Some of the events Madison County 4-H members may participate in are:

  • Dairy Bowl
  • Horse Bowl
  • Farmer's Museum Jr. Livestock Show
  • Poultry Science
  • Goat Knowledge
  • Hippology
  • Obedience classes and Judging 
  • Clinics for each species
  • County & State Fair Livestock Shows

The 4-H animal science program has the opportunity to be expanded to other species as the interest arises.

Livestock ID Forms and other required records (see species ID forms) are due to the office June 1st of EACH YEAR in order to compete at the Madison County Fair or the State Fair. Please see the Madison County 4-H Rules/Regulations Book for other specific requirements.
