The Maryland 4-H Animal Sciences Program

Resource Type



Youth in Animal Sciences Projects learn and practice life skills with an emphasis on decision making, acquiring knowledge and taking personal responsibility through participation in 4-H animal science opportunities such as project animal care, judging and bowl events. They develop competencies in animal science, including an understanding of animal sciences and animal management as well as an awareness of agricultural issues in society (e.g. a concern for animal well being and increasing public agricultural literacy.) Youth have the opportunity to learn about the parts of an animal, breeds, costs to raise animals and how to care for animals.
