The 4-H meat goat educational program and related activities (such as workshops, tours) provide youth a fun and hands-on learning experience which develops both goat subject skills (such as nutrition, housing, and health care) and life skills (such as responsibility, decision-making, nurturing, and communications) under the direction of caring adults.

  • Each 4-H member needs to turn in a record sheet and worksheet to complete the Meat Goat project for the year.
  • Grade is based on the grade you were in when you enrolled in 4-H for the 2016 year.
  • Answers to the worksheet are found in the Goat Resource Manual (Ohio State). One resource manual is provided per family the first year a family member takes a Goat Project.
