Taylor County faculty and trained support staff provide educational programs as well as a number of ag testings  services to the citizens of Taylor County.   Our Ag agent provides unbiased, research-based info that helps clients make critical decisions.  Extension recommendations focus on maximizing production and profit, while minimizing environmental impacts.  Our 4-H Program Assistant creates and organizes youth educational programs including competitive events which will assist young people to develop citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills through experiential learning. We also provide information to help citizens live healthier lives through home food preservation, and assistance with diets for seniors and diabetics.  

UGA Extension operates through a unique partnership with Taylor County, the University of Georgia, the State of Georgia and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  Backed up by specialists and a network of resources, Extension Agents have been on the job in Georgia since 1914.

  • Apr 20 - Apr 21 Georgia 4-H Area Poultry Judging Contest-Tifton Poultry judging is an evaluation event in which students learn and understand standards used in poultry and egg production and marketing, and to apply the standards in a realistic decision-making situation. During the contest, participants judge both live specimens and market poultry, identify parts of birds already prepared for market, and evaluate eggs as to their quality and readiness for market. For at least one class, typically a live production class, participants are asked to justify their placing decisions through a set of oral reasons. Participants compare their opinion of an animal against the ideal as specified by industry experts, and learn organizational skills as they compose their thoughts into a cohesive set of reasons justifying their decisions. The skills of decision making, critical thinking, and problem solving are acquired throughout the process.
