Learn all about raising goats! Previous years, we built kid treatment boxes, tasted all kinds of goat products, learned how to give needles, toured interesting farms, identified pregnancy by ultrasound, did post mortems, and much more. In 2016, we will learn about breeding and reproduction, and show our project goats at Zurich and Seaforth Fairs. We have a building project idea, and hope to arrange a tour day and goat feast by the end of the club.

The Grey Township 4-H Club is based out of the Walton area. In the past we have tackled many different projects from Cooking to Judging to photography, and outdoor sports to small engines. We choose our projects from what our members are interested in and what the leaders skills are.
