Pacifica 4-H prepares for county fair

The Pacifica 4-H Club is delighted to participate in the 2021 San Mateo County Fair, taking place in person from June 5 to June 13 at the San Mateo County Event Center.

Youth members are busy preparing their chickens, turkeys, goats and sheep for market judging and auction sale at this annual event. These shows are the culmination of the 4-H animal project year and bring together 4-H members from across the county.

Animals will be shown to professional judges in competitions open to fair attendees, and they are ranked based on weight, finish, stature and comparison. Youth in the goats and lambs competitions are also open to showmanship awards.

The 2020 fair was virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

4-H is a national organization for kids ages 5 to 19 that teaches young people about leadership, community and life skills, and all are welcome to learn more about what 4-H has to offer.
