Smith County 4-H hosted its fourth annual livestock clinic on Monday, June 6, 2022.
We had 24 participants from Smith, Trousdale, Wilson, White, Macon and Clay Counties. Participants ranged from seasoned exhibitors to 4-H members just trying a new skill. Each participant was able to gain hands-on experience with their animal while furthering their showmanship skills. Participants also brushed up on skillathon and learned about fitting, grooming, and selecting their show animal. At the conclusion of the clinic, participants were able to put what they had learned to the test by competing in a showmanship class.
We are extremely proud of these 4-H’ers for the time and commitment that they put into their livestock projects. We are excited to follow their show career this year as they move on to show at the regional and state level.
We would like to especially thank Alanna Vaught, Abigayle Pollock, and Grace Powell who donated their time and expertise as clinicians.
