Duplin County 4-H

Duplin County 4-H 4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is about having fun, learning, exploring and discovering.
(1)

In 4-H, young people make new friends, develop new skills, become leaders and help shape their communities. More than 208,000 youth get involved in 4-H through community or project clubs, special interest programs, school enrichment programs, in after school programs, and through our Operation Military Kids program. These youth live in cities, suburbs, small towns and rural communities. 4-H gives youth a chance to explore their own interests - from photography to computers, from building rockets to raising animals. A list of 4-H projects is available online by visiting our 4-H Curriculum webpage. They go places from district retreats to camp, to state and national conferences. They learn to be outstanding citizens and excellent leaders. In 4-H, youth learn life skills such as public speaking, decision-making, organizational/planning, leadership, teamwork, record keeping and communications skills.

This heifer (girl) was about 80# at birth.
She will nurse from her mom & eat grass/hay for about 6 months.
At that point she will be weaned and likely eat a balanced feed ration & continue with forages.
Productive heifers have their first calf by 2 years of age, and are then called a cow.
Do you have questions about cows? Feel free to ask below or follow us in the weeks to come for more fun facts!
