In this club youth learn about raising 4-H market steers and this type of agriculture.

Beef Cattle

Raising beef animals can help youth growth personally and learn skills that will help them become more responsible. The skills learned in raising livestock also carry over into other aspects of 4-H life.

In the 4-H Beef Program, you have the opportunity to develop skills in the following areas:

  • Animal Care and Ownership
  • Honesty and Sportsmanship
  • Animal Health and Biosecurity
  • Quality Assurance
  • Human Health
  • Ethics and Conduct

The skills learned in raising livestock also will carry over into other aspects of 4-H life. All youth ages 8-18 by January 1 of the current year are welcome to participate.  Join and learn about raising 4-H market steers. Steers are sold each year at Round-Up in September. The 4-H Beef Club meets the months of January to November.  Club meetings are held every 3rd Thursday at 7:00 PM at the Penn State Extension Office and various locations throughout the County.
