Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to discover any trend developing in youth participation in junior livestock shows in Utah and to identify the factors which affect youth participation. Junior livestock show records and 4-H enrollment figures from Cache and Box Elder Counties and the State of Utah, were studied to obtain necessary statistical information. A survey was constructed and issued to former and present 4-H members. Economic theory was employed in order to compare the survey data and participation statistics. The paper is divided into three major parts: similarities and differences between the Cache and Box Elder County Fair Junior Livestock Shows, age group comparisons, and other comparisons, in that order.
