4-H Market Steer Project

funday2012.jpgYouth ages 9-19 can raise a market steer in the 4-H Market Steer Project. Youth will nominate their own project animal in the spring.   Steers will be weighed in the first week in June. Youth will learn how to feed and care for the animal, keep detailed records of expenses and weight gains, and prepare the steer for showing at local county shows and the South Carolina State Fair Market Steer Show and Sale.  This is a terminal show with steers being sold after the show.
