Yes, our lovely animals may have some tag-a-longs and it is up to you to know about it. Below is a great resource to help teach your 4-H club about bio security and keeping animals healthy.


Winter is a great time to brush up on information, so that you can be ready in the spring to introduce your new market animal to your home.


This animal science lesson can be used across 4-H animal project areas to develop an understanding of microorganisms, or “germs” -and how they are transmitted, and to promote animal health with safe cleaning methods and good management plans.    If you have any questions about teaching the lesson or training your volunteers to use it in a club setting contact
