Randy Williams

Lincoln-Adams Co.
4-H Program Coordinator

My name is Randy Williams and I became the Lincoln/Adams 4-H Program Coordinator in November, 2015.

I am originally from the Reardan/Davenport area where I was raised on a wheat and cattle operation. I graduated high school from Reardan and received my Bachelors Degree in Agricultural Education and Masters Degree in Animal Science from WSU where I conducted meat animal research, taught the Advanced Livestock Selection course and coached the Collegiate Livestock Judging team. My teaching career has spanned over 34 years at Ephrata, Mead and Medical Lake High Schools. I served as Ag teacher and FFA Advisor and am honored to have positively influenced the lives of thousands of kids during my professional career. I also have and continue to serve as Beef Cattle Judge at many county and regional shows across the northwest and California.

My 4-H Program Coordinator responsibilities:

  • Provide oversight and leadership.
  • Manage the 90+ volunteer leaders for the 12+ 4-H clubs and over 230 members with a focus on Animal Science.
  • Develop, promote and facilitate 4-H youth development education programs such as clinics, shows and competitions.

I am excited and look forward to the opportunity to serve YOU!

Market Livestock Affidavit & Health Records

If you are raising a Market Beef, Sheep, Swine, or Goat you are required to complete a Market Health Form (Quality Assurance) for that animal and turn it in when you arrive at Fair.  You should take your Market Health Form with you when you PURCHASE your animal so you can get the animal I.D. information from the producer.  The forms are a means of tracking any medication or medicated feeds fed to market animals and the withdrawal dates for the medication or food.  Keep and update as needed till fair time.

Market Livestock Health Forms

If You Have a Question:

  • About your 4-H project or policy – ask your leader or refer to the
    WA State 4-H Policy and Procedures
  • About the health of your animal – ask your veterinarian
  • About Fair entry/animal management requirements- contact the specific Fair. (Fairs/sales may have livestock management period requirements longer than the minimum required in the WA State 4-H Policy)
