Montana: 4-H Horse and Livestock Leaders Forum is Jan. 28-30

The Montana 4-H Horse and Livestock Leaders Forum is scheduled for Helena, MT, Jan. 28-30. The broad range of timely topics gives the state’s volunteer leadership and ag professionals current technical information to enhance programs in the 56 counties.

Hosted by the Lewis and Clark County Extension Office, the forum will address a dozen topics that serve as the base of educational and hands-on programs for the youth enrolled in equine and livestock programs across the state.

“The horse and livestock projects are among the largest in the state’s 4-H program, so we wanted to give leaders and other volunteers the skills and techniques that will help them provide current material for them to use when working with 4-H members across the state,” stated 4-H/Youth Development Extension Agent Allison Flynn. “Leaders come from all over, and it gives them the opportunity come to together to learn new material and to exchange ideas and to network with each other.”

The forum, held every other year, has been held in Billings and Bozeman in the past.

Flynn said the target audience is 4-H leaders, but county agents and others in the ag and livestock business are welcome as well. She expects between 100-150 participants.

Flynn and the other Lewis and Clark extension personnel have put together a roster of speakers that reads like a “who’s who” of Montana State University (MSU) specialists.

On Friday, Jan. 28, between 4 and 5 p.m., and on Saturday, Jan. 29, between 7:30-8 a.m., registration is available at the Red Lion Colonel Inn in Helena.

The dinner and evening program is scheduled for the Bill Hamilton 4-H Building at the Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds. Following the dinner, a demonstration on Yoga on Horseback and Dog Agility and herding is planned at the fairgrounds.

Here is the schedule and the speakers for the two-day program:
