We wanted to make everyone aware of a new camp coming up this summer sponsored by the Texas Lamb and Goat Validation. This will be a week full of opportunities for youth who are particularly interested in the sheep and goat side of the agricultural industry.
We will introduce and expose the students to the business and entrepreneurial spirit engrained in the production and commercial aspects of our trade, provide insight into the Sheep Skillathon, which offers Scholarship opportunities to students throughout the year, such as the $10,000 scholarship awarded at the San Antonio Livestock Show Sheep Skillathon, and offer a chance for students to get involved in and exposed to additional 4-H and FFA competitions such as Food Challenge; and that’s just to name a few!
There will be endless hands-on activities and chances to engage with a multitude of industry professionals who are both passionate in the sheep and goat industry and our youth, not to mention it will be a week full of fun!
The application is online at https://sheepandgoatvalidation.tamu.edu/texas-sheep-and-goat-youth-ranchers-round-up/ and the deadline is April 17th.
