A Note from Miss Amber

Dear Lincoln, Logan & McPherson County 4-H Families,

We are heading into a busy spring and summer here at the Extension Office with School Enrichment, SPIN Clubs, and Summer Workshops being planned. If you are interested in teaching and/or helping with a workshop (or you just have a great idea for a workshop) please reach out to me. I would love to hear what the 4-H families would like to see for workshops.

Beef EID Tags

Currently, we do not have any Beef EID tags available at the Extension Office. We will announce it on Facebook and in this Newsletter when they arrive. We did receive the Swine EID tags and have them available for sale at the Extension Office for $3 each.

4-H Market Animal Production Classes

The purpose of 4-H record keeping is to teach youth how to keep records, which is an important life skill. Record keeping is an ongoing process that does not end when 4-H ends. It teaches youth how to set goals, how to make plans for action, and the end result.

You may enter 1 market animal per species in a production class. The specific animal must be selected at pre-fair entry. The production champion per species will be the youth with the highest total score from the live show, rate of gain and record book. Record books will need be turned in by September 15th.

Watch the newsletter for the specific date. Refer to the Fairbook for more information on Production Classes.

Animal Project Record sheets can be found at:
