4-H lamb project begins June 11

Rowan County Cooperative Extension is providing an opportunity for youth interested in completing a 4-H lamb project.
This special youth project, made possible by a grant from the Blanche and Julian Robertson Family Foundation, targets youth who have a special interest in raising lambs.
This project is open to youth ages 5-18, as of Jan. 1. Participating youth will be provided with a lamb and pen to keep the lamb. Participants will be responsible the primary care of the lamb, including the feeding, watering, grooming and health of their animal.
Cooperative Extension will conduct workshops to educate participants on nutrition, health and showmanship in preparation for the county fair. The youth will show and sell their lambs at the Rowan County Fair in September.
Participating youth are also responsible for obtaining sponsors for selling their lamb during the Market Lamb Sale. All participants must also complete a project summary of the program.
Livestock agent Thomas Cobb and 4-H agent Sara Drake will lead the project. Space is limited. If you are interested in participating, please contact Brooke Peeler at the Extension office at 704-216-8970 to register.
The first meeting that all participants will be required to attend will be June 11 at 7 p.m. at the Rowan County Agriculture Center, 2727 Old Concord Road.
