Livestock Building

BK Web Works' Photo

December 16, 2013 - The Ag Power and Structures class at the Litton Agriculture Education Center are assisting in the construction of an improvement to the sheep/goat side of the livestock building at the Litton Agri-Science Learning Center. The new improvement is a concrete pad approximately 22' by 31' long, along with some new gates and fencing. At this time, the new gates and fencing are not yet constructed. In the future, the classes will be constructing the pens inside and out. The skills that the students are learning include concrete construction, welding, project planning, and work ethic. The skills learned will hopefully help them in some area around their own homes.

The Litton Agri-Science Learning Center was created for the Livingston County youth with an interest in livestock that did not have the facilities of their own. All of the individuals involved with the Litton Agri-Science Learning Center, and especially Mr. Black and his classes, would like to thank Dewayne McCauslin for assisting with the planning and construction and the Liz Boon Memorial for funding this project.
