• I believe that participation in the 4-H Livestock Program should demonstrate my own knowledge, ability, and skill as a feeder and exhibitor of livestock.
  • I will do my own work to the fullest extent I am capable and otherwise will only accept help and support from others.
  • I will not use abusive, fraudulent, illegal, deceptive, or questionable practices in the feeding, fitting, and showing of my animal(s), nor will I allow my parents, my supervisor, or any other individual to employ such practices with my animal(s).
  • I will read, understand, and follow the rules without exception, of all livestock shows in which I am a participant, and ask that my parents and the supervisor of my project to do the same.
  • I wish for my livestock project to be an example of how to accept what life has to offer, both good and bad, and how to live with the outcome.
  • I realize that I am responsible for:
    • The proper care and safe, humane treatment of my animals
    • The production of high quality, safe, and wholesome food, and
    • Demonstrating strong moral character as an example to others by upholding the 4-H Code of Conduct
