The Hillsdale County 4-H Sheep Project is a great project for those wanting exposure to animal science. There are two main types of Sheep Projects that a Hillsdale County 4-H member may choose. A sheep breeding project is a long-term project while the market lamb project involves the 4-H member caring for the lamb through the growing phase.
Sheep projects provide youth with opportunities to expand their knowledge of the sheep industry, production and, more importantly, develop many life skills. As 4-H youth feed, train, show and care for sheep project animals, they learn about sheep breeds, selection, grooming, production, management, marketing, reproduction, health, and agribusiness careers.
