4-H Raised Meat
As an avid supporter of our local 4-H kids we tend to buy too much meat and have excess amounts of meat that we can't consume in the year before the next sale. In turn, we offer up some of these meats to you, to help us continue supporting our local 4-H kids.
The 4-H participants raise and care for their animals with so much love and dedication.
What is 4-H you ask?
4-H is a youth development program for kids ages 8 to 18 that empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults.
4-H members participate in local 4-H clubs, 4-H school programs or 4-H outreach programs where they learn new skills, make new friends and have fun. Within community clubs, youth attend meetings, complete projects, practice public speaking and do community service.
Routt County 4-H has 300 youth members and 85 adult volunteers. We have 8 community clubs located in Hayden, South Routt, North Routt and Steamboat Springs. Our members are learning by doing is projects ranging from shooting sports to raising livestock, veterinary science to cooking and food preservation to heritage arts and much more.
What do they participate in 4-H?
Research shows that young people who participate in 4-H clubs:
Do better in school
Are more motivated to help others
Develop skills in leadership, public speaking, self-esteem, communication and planning
Make lasting friendships.
Through real-life situations, 4-H helps youth develop life skills such as: communication, citizenship, decision-making, leadership, interpersonal relations and community and global awareness. Youth learn these practical skills through hundreds of projects like cooking, wildlife, livestock, model rocketry, sewing, archery and shooting sports, art, photography, computers, leather craft, outdoor adventure and many more.
We thank these kids for their hard work and determination.
