4-H offers so many projects besides just livestock (pigs, beef, goats, etc.). You can look at projects in Food & Nutrition, Clothing & Textiles, Leadership or anything else you might be interested in.

If I can be of any help in anyway, please call the Extension Office 830-780-3906.

Please continue to let us know of things in your club! We would like to be of any assistance that we can!
