2019 Osceola County 4-H/ FFA Market Animal Show and Sale Dates

It’s that time of year again! Fair time! The Osceola County Fair is a great place to come out and support Osceola County 4-H and FFA members who raise and show market animals. The goal is for the members to raise a market steer, hog, lamb, or goat to place at the top of their class at the fair to yield the best carcass for the consumer market. UF/IFAS Extension Osceola County has a strong 4-H Animal Science program with 86 youth market steer participants, 129 market hog participants, and 43 market lamb and goat participants. The 4-H members involved range from 8-18 years old. The market animal program will assist youth in learning about animal production and management, health and nutrition, personal safety, and record keeping. The 4-H Animal Science program allows member to save the money they earn from selling their market animal for various purposes, such as college, to buy a new car, or to put money away to help purchase their future market animals.
