The Evangeline Parish 4-H and FFA Jr. Livestock Show was held on Thursday, January 19 through Saturday, January 21, 2012, at the Chauncey Pitre Memorial Building.

More than 90 Evangeline Parish 4-Her’s participated in this year’s Jr. Livestock Show. These 4-H'ers exhibited 31 market hogs, 22 market lambs, 42 market goats, 19 broiler pens, four head of dairy cattle, 40 head of breeding cattle, eight head of breeding goats, 12 commercial heifers and three head of breeding sheep. The livestock show is a venue in which 4-H'ers exhibit their animal projects after months of preparation. The preparation includes selection, nutrition, health care, training and grooming of their animals. These responsibilities teach 4-H’ers life skills such as communication, discipline, leadership and finance management. The life skills gained through their animal project are values that will benefit them into adulthood and ultimately into their careers.

The 4-H and FFA livestock program is sponsored by the LSU AgCenter. The 4-H program is open to all youth between the ages of 9 and 19. Children can join 4-H in schools in Evangeline Parish at the beginning of the school year.

It is the policy of the LSU AgCenter that no person shall be subjected to discrimination on the grounds of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, veteran status, or disability.

A special thanks to the parents, volunteers, junior leaders and local business for their continued support of the 4-H program.
