Youth interested in dogs, cats, rabbits, cavies, poultry, birds, and other small companion animals can participate in 4-H Small Animal projects and learn about animal health, anatomy, nutrition, showing, pet care, and more.
Please Note: All poultry (except waterfowl) being exhibited at a fair must test negative for Pullorum within 90 days of the fair or originate from a US Pullorum Typhoid clean flock or a flock which has had a negative official test in the previous two years. Documentation must be presented to the volunteer veterinarian. Waterfowl do not require any testing/certification. Contact the CCE Office if your bird needs to be tested.
Small Animal Showmanship PPT Presentations:
Due to website limitations, we can only post the .pdf version of the presentation. If you would like to receive the .ppt file by email, please contact Mark Wittmeyer.
