Scotts Bluff County 4-H

Year End Update

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We would like to "Thank" all of our 4-H Family for a fantastic year! Our program is amazing, because of the outstanding youth, volunteers, and families that are involved. We hope everyone takes time to enjoy this special time of year. The Nebraska Extension office will be closed from December 24 through January 2. We will be back in the office on January 5.

Saturday, January 31 from 1 pm to 3 pm @ the UNL Feedlot (snow date Feb 14)


Saturday, February 28 from 1 pm to 3 pm @ the UNL Feedlot (Snow date Mar 7)

Market Beef exhibitors will need to attend one of these weigh-ins.

The UNL Feedlot is located north of Scottsbluff off of Experiment Farm Road. Call 632-1480 if you need directions! Tags are $1 each and we will have all the paperwork needed. If you are interested in showing Market Beef at Ak-Sar-Ben or State Fair, you MUST submit a DNA kit for these animals. DNA Kits will be available at the weigh-in for $6 each and are due to the UNL Extension Office by April 1.

4-H Planning Retreat

Thank you for being a part of 4-H in 2014! To make sure we get started on the right foot in 2015, we would like host a 4-H Planning Retreat on Monday, January 5 from 6-9pm at the UNL Extension Office. A meal will be served so please RSVP by emailing by January 4. Anyone (adults or youth) with an interest in the 4-H program is welcome to attend.

Here are the goals of this event:

· Set yearly goals for the program and council

· Schedule events(or at least put on the calendar already scheduled) such as 4-H Expo, Fair, Record books, Achievement Celebration

· Put district/state events on calendar – Great way to get us all more aware of these events

· Give input and plan new programs; workshops, guest speakers, contests, etc. – I see this as the most important part of the planning meeting.
