Sign up for 2018 Minnesota 4-H Livestock Day Camps!

Are you interested in learning more about your beef, meat goat, swine or rabbit project? If so, we have the perfect training opportunity for you! The Minnesota 4-H science of animals team, together with local staff and species experts, are offering livestock day camps in six different Minnesota locations.

The training agenda for all six camps will be the same. We will take an in-depth look at fitting and showmanship, animal health and hoof/foot care, nutrition and biosecurity in each of these species.

We are excited to have the University of Minnesota’s Biosecure Entry Education Trailer at each site! The trailer will be staffed by Extension’s poultry and swine teams, including Extension Poultry Educator Abby Neu, and Sarah Schieck and Diane DeWitt, Extension swine educators. They will work to help you better understand how diseases spread.

Youth must identify one animal type to learn about during the day. The camp is focused on youth in grades six and up, but younger 4-H members with a parent/chaperone will be accepted.

Camp will start with registration at 9:30 a.m. and program starting at 10:00 a.m. We will conclude the day at 4 p.m. Cost is $10 per person, and up to $40 per immediate family, which includes lunch and breaks.

  • June 11 — Beltrami County Fairgrounds, Bemidji.
