The Earn-a-Friend Program is designed to assist deserving young 4-Hers with their desire to own and raise small livestock. Youth may apply for the opportunity to receive a lamb, goat, or pig with their parent’s consent. The youth sign an agreement to care for and show the animal at the Boonville Oneida County Fair. When the animal is of age it will be bred and the resulting offspring will be given to another deserving 4-H’er. Thus, the program is perpetuated and a revolving supply of small livestock is available to youth who are interested in raising them.
