4-H Animal Activity Night

  • Tuesday, May 7, 2024, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Tuesday, May 21, 2024, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

We all know good marketing strategies & techniques lead to higher product demand and higher product demand leads to higher sale prices. What are the marketing strategies and techniques 4-H’ers can use to increase the sale prices of their market animals? We will cover the strategies and techniques that will help members attain the highest sale price possible for their market animals:

  • Identifying potential bidders
  • Creating your personal animal project story
  • Developing a creative sales pitch
  • Writing an effective introductory letter
  • Making an impactful first impression
  • Maintaining an ongoing personal relationship

This is a two-session program. The first will be an interactive session learning/practicing strategies and techniques you can use to market your project animal to potential bidders. The second will be a meet and greet reception with community members and local business. 4-H’ers will have the opportunity to talk with potential bidders, make their sales pitch, tell their story and receive constructive feedback directly from those who you make your pitch too. Whether you are brand new to the 4-H market animal program or this is your third year, these evenings will give you the tools you need to successfully market your market animal.

  • First Session - RSVP by May 5th to Jenn at jls669@cornell.edu
  • Second Session - RSVP by May 10th to Jenn at jls669@cornell.edu
