Putnam County 4-H Special Lamb Program
The Special Lamb Program is in its 26th year of operation!
The Special Lamb Project for Putnam County pairs youth with disabilities with a 4-H’er experienced in raising livestock. Together, this pair shares the duty of feeding and caring for a lamb, and showing it and selling it at the Putnam County Fair in July. Each member of the team receives part of the proceeds from the sale of the lamb.
This program is unique in that it offers realistic experiences to youth with disabilities, with the goal of developing their physical and mental potentials. For the non-disabled 4-H member, this program will establish a greater understanding of persons with disabilities and establish a friendship bond that will last for a lifetime.
We are now taking in applications for youth interested in participating in the 2015 Special Lamb Program. Please select the appropriate application below and have it mailed to the Putnam County WVU Extension Service Office by the posted deadline.
Applications are due by February 20, 2015!
