About this Program Area

Kentucky 4-H agriculture and animal science programs provide young people an opportunity to find their spark through hands-on learning experiences. A variety of projects and activities are offered in the areas of animal, food, plant, and soil sciences, including but not limited to livestock, horse, rabbit, dog, and gardening clubs, country ham projects, agriculture field days, embryology in the classroom projects, and garden school enrichment programs. Through these programs, young people connect with other youth members and adult leaders who share similar interests and learn invaluable life skills such as responsibility, teamwork, communication, and critical thinking.
