On May 4, the Cape May County 4-H Youth Development Program‘s Livestock Committee hosted a Poultry Clinic. Nearly 40 members of the community and 4-Hers from as far away as Ocean County attended the educational event, held in the Lockwood 4-H Youth Center in Cape May Court House, NJ. Pictured above, senior 4-H members Cody Hanek, Kate Sugar and Susanna Allay demonstrate the basics and finer points of poultry showmanship.
Guest speaker Peter Brown, a poultry expert from Maryland, spoke about disease and parasites in poultry, and taught participants how to perform vaccinations on their own birds. 4-H members will now be honing their poultry showmanship skills for competition at the Cape May County 4-H Fair, scheduled for July 18-20 at the 4-H Fairgrounds in Cape May Court House.
