Youth Livestock Ambassadors (YLA) Leadership Group

The Junior Livestock Committee is a group of 11th and 12th graders, with representatives from 4-H and FFA, who work to help run the three livestock auctions at Spring Fair and the Summer County Fair. They run exhibitor meetings, paint-brand livestock before the auctions, spot buyers and organize runners, and provide general support. It is a wonderful opportunity to develop leadership skills and network within the 4-H community while also looking excellent on a resume to future employers and scholarship committees. Committee members must be nominated by a 4-H leader and go through an interview process, starting mid-January. If you have questions, please call Hillary Walkup, Phoenix High School, Agriculture Science and Technology Teacher, P.O. Box 697, Phoenix, OR 97535, 541-535-1526 ext. 3042
