Placer County 4-H Sheep Coordinator Group

What is the Sheep Coordinator Group?

3

The Sheep Coordinator Group is a countywide group that’s goal is to bring together both youth and adults within 4-H and beyond to learn about lambs and sheep. From general care, showmanship, and preparation for the Placer County Fair or Gold Country Fair, all the way to learning about the sheep industry and care of a larger herd. Agricultural knowledge and education surrounding lambs and sheep is vast. The Sheep Coordinator Group strives to educate youth and adults in a well-rounded way to be fully prepared for showing sheep, but also understanding local livestock farming in the Sierra Nevada Foothills.
