4-H has always involved animals; therefore animal welfare is an important part of the 4-H program.
Part of practicing good animal welfare is looking out for the welfare of all animals. If you visit the Warrick County 4-H fair this week, you will see countless examples of 4-H members practicing animal welfare.
With the high temperatures this week, 4-H members are taking precautions against the heat by ensuring their animals are staying cool and comfortable. Just as families take care of the elderly who might become sick during heat waves, 4-H members offer the best care they can for their animals. The responsibility 4-H members undertake with their animals allows them to grow into caring and responsible adults.
