Livestock production program for 4-H to be developed

Amy Powell

Amy Powell was recently hired to help develop an online curriculum to teach youth in 4-H about raising livestock. The new Extension and Outreach position will work with Department of Animal Science professors to ensure the information is scientifically sound.

This new position complements the governor’s STEM Initiative to boost youths’ knowledge and skills. The online curriculum also will be available to youth outside of 4-H, such as FFA and others who want to learn about animals and the science involved in their production.
