Mississippi youth have a variety of educational poultry opportunities to enjoy! No matter your age or interest, there is a program for you. Activities include poultry production of all types, poultry and poultry products judging, preparing foods using poultry products, and public presentations on the many topics within the poultry program. 4-H’ers can compete in activities at the county, district, state, and national levels. Rewards include an increased appreciation of the influence of the poultry industry on our lives and recognition in the form of awards, prizes, trips, and even scholarships!
Farm supply stores are full of cute chicks in the spring, and the sight of the fluffy baby birds, combined with future dreams of fresh eggs, prompts many people to impulsively start a backyard flock.
The 4-H Poultry Chain Project regularly receives generous donations from organizations across the state, but the project has never received a donation quite like Southern AgCredit’s pledge of $25,000 over 5 years.
When FARMtastic makes its rounds over South Mississippi, residents, businesses, schools, and community organizations come together to ensure that participants have a great time.
