Local youth rack up ribbons in District livestock show

The Northeast District Livestock Show was held January 31st-Febuary 3rd in Delhi. Union Parish 4-H Exhibitors represented the parish well with bringing home several awards.
The Union Parish 4-H Livestock Program is a unique opportunity to use animals and educational projects to enhance youth development. The main objectives of the program deal with the young people, not the animals. Participants learn about agriculture and livestock production, and they develop an appreciation for the livestock industry; the main objectives, however, are to teach life skills and help 4-H’ers become productive citizens of our society.
The experience of children owning and working with animals; being responsible for their care, health, and growth; and exhibiting them in a competitive environment is a tremendous character-building process. Young people participate in the major animal science projects of beef, dairy, sheep, swine, horse, dairy goats, meat goats, rabbits, poultry, and meat science. In addition to the animal projects.
