Youth learning how to be responsible citizens

TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

South Georgia youngsters are learning to be responsible citizens by working with livestock.

A huge lamb and goat show kicked off tonight at the Tift County Extension. 4-H and F-F-A students are showing the animals they've raised. Organizers say it builds character, and the kids say it has a lot of benefits. 

"We're learning about livestock, it's part of our history, it's history, it's fun, it's sports, it gets you active, and it's not something that will bore you to death," said Buddy Alvis, participant.      

Students from 41 south and middle Georgia counties are taking part.The show continues Saturday.
