Farmers bring animals to Summit Park for 4H Youth Agriculture Show

Harrison

The WVU Extension Program met with local farmers and young enthusiasts Saturday Morning for the ‘Harrison County 4H Youth Agriculture Show’.  

Summit Park was filled with livestock and other animals for educational purposes focusing on agriculture and environmental science.

“Animals will be judged on what their purpose is basically. So, if they are breeding, are they going to make a good breeding animal in the future, and then the participants will actually participate in what we call showmanship. So it’s basically how do they present that animal when they show them in the ring.” said Samantha Cogle from WVU Extension.

The winner of the judging contest received a variety of prizes that went toward the wellness and maintenance of the animals.
