Share

Want to visit a farm and get to pet baby beef calves? This is the session for you as we Bite into Beef for the next Kent 4-H Clover Kids program. This event will be on June 16th, 9:00 am to 11:00 am, at the Hill Haven Farm, Kennedyville.

Hill Haven family farm has a herd of beef cattle you can view and several beef calves that you visit and pet. We will learn how cattle are raised and how to take care of them, what they eat and the what adaptation makes them special (ruminents). We will also learn about large animal safety. We will of course eat some beef – beef jerky.

If this sounds like fun, sign up by Thursday June 14th. All youth ages 5-7 years are welcome with a parent or guardian. Program is limited to 15 youth.
