New Hampshire 4-H Working Steer Project
The New Hampshire 4-H Working Steer Project is long-term project that allows youth the opportunity to train a pair of steers (castrated male bovines) to work together as a team. This project is growing in popularity due to the numerous classes that a youth and their team can participate in at fairs and competitions. You don’t have to have your own working steer pair to participate in the New Hampshire 4-H Working Steer Project. You can lease an animal and/or participate in a variety of the activities and events that the New Hampshire 4-H Working Steer Project has to offer. Click on the links below for more information.
