Description

The Agricultural Science Program engages 4-H members in a variety of hands-on activities and experiences that cultivate an increased understanding and appreciation for agriculture. Projects and activities are offered in the areas of beef cattle, sheep, swine, goats, dairy, equine, food science, and plant and soil science.  

Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  This program fosters mastery by learning about plant and soil sciences, animal science, food science, and sustainable agricultural practices, belonging by interacting and connecting with adults and youth with similar interests, independence by practicing leadership skills and independent thinking, and generosity by participating in community service and citizenship activities.  Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
