Mildred Litton 4-H/FFA Community Center

  • Classroom - 36x24
  • Community Room - 42x100


The Litton Agri-Science Learning Center was designed for the youth of Livingston County to learn more about agriculture as well as house their 4-H and FFA projects. In exchange for housing their projects there, the youth assist in the care and maintenance of the Litton Ag Campus. Local youth sign a contract that states they will provide care for their animal and help maintain the Litton Ag Campus grounds. In exchange, they are allowed to use the facilities and livestock equipment.

Livestock Building

The Ag Power and Structures class at the Litton Agriculture Education Center assisted in the construction of the improvement to the sheep/goat side of the livestock building at the Litton Agri-Science Learning Center. The improvement was a concrete pad approximately 22' by 31' long, along with new gates and fencing. Classes constructed 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 who did not have the facilities of their own. All of the individuals involved with the Litton Agri-Science Learning Center would like to thank Dewayne McCauslin for assisting with the planning and construction and the Liz Boon Memorial for funding this project.

First grade students from Chillicothe Elementary School received a little assistance from the Litton Crusaders at the Litton Ag Campus and the Livingston County Farm Bureau on March 28, 2019. The students learned about plants in class and were given the opportunity to get their hands a little dirty by planting marigold seeds.

The students learn about habitats and animals with assistance from the Litton Crusaders program.


Members raised $1000 during their December chapter meeting to make blankets and give a monetary donation to Children's Mercy Hospital. Students made 53 fleece blankets during class for patients at the hospital.
