The Utah 4-H Livestock Program is designed for those youth with interest in livestock and livestock events. Youth are given the opportunity to develop leadership, citizenship, self-esteem, social, and livestock skills. This program is for youth in grades 3-12, but not younger than 8. The Utah 4-H Livestock Program includes programs for those youth who own/have access to livestock and those who do not, but still want to learn about the science of livestock selection, care, and management. To find information about livestock clubs in your areas or to start your own club, contact your County Extension Office.
There are several options for livestock projects including participating in State Contests for Livestock Judging or Livestock Bowl, as well as creating Ag Demonstrations for your county and state fairs.
Utah Junior Livestock Association
One of the most popular project areas is junior livestock. Utah 4-H has a strong relationship with the Utah Junior LIvestock Association and supports several different state-sanctioned shows that welcome 4-H youth raising beef, goats, sheep, and hogs. Animals participating in these state shows must be tagged using state-tags by your local 4-H agent or FFA advisor.

Besides the State Shows, there are several counties that invite exhibitors across the state to participate. If you are a member of a livestock show and would like to be listed here, please contact the State 4-H Office (email below).
