Check out the sign in the photo. It's hanging proudly in the livestock barn in Beauregard Parish. Great message! Great challenge for the youth who are wandering around the barn, hanging out with friends, making decisions about their behavior!
What a great opportunity to stop and realize that every conversation, action, behavior, and attitude is being watched by little ones. The 4-H livestock program is well known for being a family project. Several generations are involved in bringing a 4-H member to a barn along with their animals. Grandpas, grandmas, and grandchildren can be found around bales of hay and beach chairs. Talking and laughing with each other and the family next to them in the barn.
From the sign -"You owe it to them to be the BEST you can be":
My family is a livestock family. My parents were so excited to have grandchildren to start the cycle over once again. When we stepped into the barn they were greeted by friends and it was "old home week" for them.
