Lamb School

New Mexico State 4-H Lamb School

When: June 10-June 13, 2014

Where: New Mexico State Fairgrounds; Albuquerque, New Mexico

Must be currently enrolled as a 4-H or FFA member, agent, AG teacher, leader, or parent to attend.



Lamb School is a valuable experience for youth, leaders, and agents of all skill levels. There are three days of very intense instruction with as much hands-on learning as possible. Participants bring at least one lamb, but they are allowed to bring two. In order to keep the groups small, the number of applications is limited to the first 75, on a "first come, first served" basis.

Attendees must be in compliance with the 2014 New Mexico Livestock Board Guidelines for Livestock Exhibitors.

The subjects covered are:

  • Selection
  • Nutrition
  • Grooming
  • Showmanship and sportsmanship
  • Ethics
  • Preparing for a fair
  • Care during a fair
  • Exercise

Registration is done online. Contact your local County Extension Office.
