4-H is a pathway to the Future -- all across the Commonwealth, in every county, 4-H is teaching us valuable skills that will carry with us into adulthood.

For 2019, we are highlighting the Animal Science projects that are one of the many areas of interest within Pennsylvania 4-H. Much of the youth building activities will revolve around hands-on activities, demonstrations, or presentations about these projects.

4-H clubs who will be participating include:

Wednesday Featured Demonstrations

  • Pennsylvania State Rabbit Breeder's Association will have live rabbits and demonstrations on Wednesday

Week Long Exhibits

  • Pennsylvania 4-H - Learn about the state 4-H Program, participate in an animal science activity
  • Good Time 4-H Club - Embryology - See the process of hatching eggs through storyboards!
  • Critters Inc. Poultry 4-H Club - Exploring the 4-H Poultry Projects - Looking at poultry as a 4-H project? We will have chickens and ducks on display as well as explore state and national event opportunities.
