The Livestock Committee provides advice, program support, visibility, resource generation, and assists in upholding county, state, and national policies in support of the Arapahoe County 4-H Youth Development Program. They assist with coordination, promotion, and scheduling of events, activities, and shows in Arapahoe County with the CSU 4-H Livestock & Youth Development Extension agent as well as other responsibilities as outlined in committee bylaws.
