The slogan of 4-H is “learn by doing” and that is the essence of 4-H. Youth are mentored and encouraged with the help of volunteers and peers to Learn by Doing in all their projects! The Barnyard Bandits 4-H Club is no exception! 4-H’ers in the Barnyard Bandits had a great time showing their animals at the Mountain State Fair, Haywood Fair, McDowell Fair, and in the days ahead, the NC State Fair!

The Barnyard Bandits 4-H Club is one of our largest and most active 4-H Clubs with over 60 youth members. With eight different animal groups represented, pig, goat, llama, sheep, chicken, cow, horse, and rabbit, youth learn how to care for, raise, and show a livestock animal throughout the duration of the year.

4-H’ers from Henderson County Barnyard Bandits were certainly noted during fair awards this year. While it does not capture all of our 4-H’ers and 4-H volunteers who make the program possible, we invite you to spot someone you know from the pictures below!

Yes, the 4-H youth absolutely loved working with their animals and gained an appreciation for agriculture. However, working with livestock in 4-H, youth also learned responsibility, work ethic, good sportsmanship, critical thinking skills, decision-making skills, public speaking skills, and social skills, and we see an increase in their confidence and their ability to put good knowledge to work!
