The mission of the Teton County Livestock Committee will ethically guide the integrity of 4-H members to be successful in their animal projects and will conduct the Teton County 4-H show and sale in the same manner.  We will be true, honest, and forthright in all dealings in our community. We will set a positive example and encourage camaraderie among all those involved in the Teton County 4-H program.
