    My boys have showed poultry and llama. Hamilton County in Indiana has a great animal showing. There is a huge dog club and they have obedience and obstacle shows, but we don't have a dog. It is fun to watch the shows.

    I work very closely with our 4-h Horse events. I do hope when my son is old enough that he is involved in 4-h. It's a great program that no one takes advantadge of in our area.

    I'd like to join 4-H once we move to the country and can have some goats and more chickens. Could anyone tell me what is involved in joining?

    Quote:You just sign up and choose which areas of 4-h you are intersted in participating in. They will point you where to go from there.

    Does anyone have any information on how to find a local 4H club? How to get started? The only links that I have found seem to be set up to help people who are already familiar with 4H.​

    In Michigan, 4-H is ran through Michigan State University Extension. If you look up 4-H office in your phone book it may be there. Another thought is to look up 4-H in the internet

    You don't have to have animals to join 4-H. There are a lot of possibilites of project areas.

    We are involved in 4-H and love it. I grew up in 4-H and my kids are 4th generation 4-Her's.

    Try a google search for "4H Cooperative Extension Office" and "your location". This should pull up several leads. I think 4H starts in 3rd grade...but some places offer Junior 4H. Also, many 4H communities offer scholerships for 10-year members, etc. I THINK it is WAY better than boy scouts and/or girl scouts as far as club experience, involvement, and life lessons.

    Our "season" starts in September (signups) and the club meets monthly. There is a signup deadline...call your extension office to get all the details!
