Pee Dee workshop on March 22 to give 4-H families a head start on livestock projects

The more you know, the better you'll do. That's the idea behind the 4-H Pee Dee Region Livestock Project Day at the Eastern Carolina Agricultural Fairgrounds on Saturday, March 22.
"We're inviting parents, 4-H'ers, and potential members to a special one-day workshop to go over the basics of livestock projects," said Faith Lawrimore Truesdale, a 4-H and Youth Development Agent with the Clemson University Extension Service in Florence. "Livestock projects are a great educational opportunity for children," Truesdale said. "We want to provide parents and 4-H'ers a little head start with information they'll need for all the animal projects: goats, rabbits, swine and chickens. It will help parents choose a project that is right for their child." The free meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. and continues until 2:30 p.m. A pizza lunch will be served. Advance registration is required. You do not have to be a current 4-H member to attend.
Registration information is available from the Florence Clemson Extension Office, Suite K, 2685 South Irby Street in Florence, 843-661-4800,
The workshop will include information on animal care and the facilities needed for livestock projects, tips on showmanship, estimates of the costs for each project, and information on fairs and shows.
"It helps to have a little background before you get started," Truesdale said. "We're hoping this will help 4-H'ers get off to a great start with their livestock projects this year."
