Junior Sheep & Goat Skillathon
A skillathon provides youth with the opportunity to blend knowledge and skills acquired in livestock judging, demonstrations, and care and exhibition of animals into a single activity. It consists of a series of stations where youth are tested on their knowledge and abilities related to livestock. Station topics may include identification (breeds, parts, equipment, meat, wool, or feed), evaluation/judging (fleeces, live animals, hay), or miscellaneous stations. All of the stations will pertain to sheep and goats and their products.
The Junior Sheep & Goat Skillathon is open to any youth between the ages of 8 and 18. Youth will compete according to their age on January 1, 2023 (4-H age). Individuals from any county, state, or province may compete. Pre-registration is required. Participants should bring clipboards and pencils to use during the contest. There is a $5.00 registration fee to enter the skillathon. The fee will help to defray the cost of refreshments, awards, and supplies.
