What does it cost to raise a market animal? How can raising a market animal teach positive financial management? What does learning how to present and market have to do with an animal project?

Most young people in 4-H market animal projects are focused on basic animal science, care and management. But market animal projects also have the potential to teach youth valuable life skills.

Through this curriculum, youth will gain knowledge about marketing and advertising their products. Participants will also explore and practice production, management and distribution skills. In addition, it provides a venue to explore what it takes to be successful in business and view the world of animal science and agribusiness as a viable career option.

Intended for 12-19 year olds, the Youth Business Guide to Success (YBGS) curriculum is very adaptable to 4-H and non-4-H audiences working with animals. 

This training includes a copy of the YBGS curriculum (a $40 value).

Registration fee - $35 (includes lunch)
