Thank you to all the 2020 4-H Livestock Buyers and Supporters. We appreciate all those who helped the youth get through this unprecedented year. The community support has been amazing and the 4-Hers have been overwhelmed with all those who have reached out to help.

What is 4-H?

4-H provides learn-by-doing educational opportunities for youth that will enable them to become the leaders of tomorrow.  4-H is the youth arm of the University of Maryland Extension, a joint venture with U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Charles County government.  4-H is in every state, D.C. and in military bases around the world.
