In the Barn

We are proud of Tollgate Farm 4-H Club's animal program. 

 

Our club members work with and learn about a variety of animals such as

goats, sheep, cattle, rabbits, horses, chickens, and ducks.

 

Club members are able to participate in animal care, earn funds for the animal program's expenses, take the animals to county and state fairs, and sell animal products including eggs, meat, and goat milk soap. Educational opportunities, such as animal ultrasounds and vet clinics are also offered to enhance members' knowledge of some of the species on the farm.

Field Trips

Our club goes on educational field trips to learn more about animal science. We often visit other farms to learn about their protocols. In this photo, three of our older club members are admiring lambs at a local sheep farm.

Educational Activities

Some of our weekly meetings are dedicated to education. In this photo, three club members are learning about proper feet and leg structure in cattle.

Our Animals

All of the animals at Tollgate serve a purpose, and we teach club members that the animals are meant for production. Our female goats produce milk, which we use to make soap. In this photo, our buck, Marius, is begging for an apple from the photographer.
