Wyoming 4-H

Wyoming 4-H Herdsmanship Information

Herdsmanship is an opportunity for youth to be recognized for taking pride in representing themselves and their county 4-H program by creating an environment that is safe and clean for animals and the general public.


  • Participation is arranged by each County 4-H Educator.
  • Each county will be evaluated as a group for species they select.  Available options include beef, sheep, swine, and goats.
  • To meet the educational and safety goals of the Wyoming 4-H program, youth are encouraged to request help from fellow members, adult volunteers, friends, and family members if necessary.

Guidelines & Evaluation

  • The evaluation committee will consist of adult volunteers.
  • Committee members will complete their evaluations every day between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. and/or between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. 
  • If evaluators cannot find your county’s pens, your group will not be evaluated. 
  • Completed evaluation forms will be available in the County Educator’s mail box each day.
  • Review the evaluation form for specific criteria and the points associated with each.  If evaluated twice in one day, the higher score will be used.

          Evaluation Form


  • Counties with consistently acceptable conditions (minimum of 70 points) throughout State Fair will win an ice cream party on Saturday afternoon. 
  • Results will be announced on Saturday afternoon.
