Kansas 4-H Cloverbuds and Spring Shows

By Pam Van Horn

When 4-H and/or Extension plans, organizes and facilitates a livestock, small animal, horse or pre or post-fair activity, please double check that 4-H Policies are being followed. An area of concern is 4-H Cloverbuds; the program was designed for 5-and 6-year-olds. Cloverbuds is activity-focused, rather than project–focused. Furthermore, 4-H Cloverbuds members may not participate in any competitive 4-H events. 4-H Cloverbuds members may showcase their exhibits at fairs and public events. 4-H Cloverbuds may not own and/or show 4-H livestock.

For more information referring to 4-H Cloverbuds, please check the Kansas Department of 4-H Youth Development Policy Guide, section D3 4-H Cloverbuds, page 8 or Kansas 4-H Cloverbuds pages 19 – 22.
