The Georgia 4-H Livestock Program offers extraordinary educational opportunities in programs that  challenged 4-Hers with real-life issues as they learn responsibility through raising, showing and judging livestock. Livestock projects give students the opportunity to practice and acquire new knowledge in the fields of animal science, business, time management and leadership.  Other animal science projects explore the care of companion and specialty animal feeding, handling, grooming, training and veterinary care and address wildlife and marine science animals.
