4-H Farm Program
Other important lessons are learned in the working 4-H Farm Program. Interacting with the animals teaches responsibility, consistency and a variety of work skills. The children work in teams and each commitment is about four months. There is a team for each type of animal:
Feeding, bathing and grooming the animals must be done, as well as cleaning the pens and sweeping and shoveling the stalls. The animals must be fed every day. If a child cannot be there on time, he or she finds a replacement because the animals have to eat. This program teaches persistence, commitment and follow-through.
