Jackson County 4-H Livestock Club Judging Teams – 2014 North Florida Fair
You can join a club and work in animal science related projects without owning animals. Participating on a judging team teaches you many skills and takes a lot of work and a commitment to practice, but it is a lot of fun too! Check with the 4-H office for information on 4-H clubs in Jackson County that are centered around animal science projects.
