4-H Cloverbuds Planning
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. The 4-H Cloverbuds member is allowed to showcase a pet from the approved list in accordance with 4-H Cloverbuds pet policies. The 4-H Cloverbuds member may not own and/or show 4-H livestock.
