Smith County 4-H is excited to host our annual Livestock Clinic for sheep, cattle, and goat exhibitors!  It will be on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, at the Smith County Ag Center. We will have clinicians specialized in each species to work hands on with the 4-H’ers. 

4-H’ers do not have to own a show animal to participate! Anyone interested is welcome to come, watch, and learn, but for those who do have animals, please feel free to bring them. 

We will cover topics like fitting and grooming, skillathon, and showmanship. We will provide lunch to those who participate.

This is a great opportunity for youth who think they might be interested in showing livestock in the future. 

The clinic is open to grades 4-12. 

To register call the Smith County Extension Office at 735-2900 by May 28.
