Bucket Calf

A bucket calf is an orphan or newborn calf; male or female; dairy, beef, or cross; fed on bucket or bottle. This project encourages youth to learn about raising beef or dairy cattle. Members will learn about caring for and raising a calf and about related health issues. Emphasis in this project is placed on the 4-H'ers knowledge, not the quality of the animal.
