Many wonderful memories have been made during the 2018-2019 4-H year. The Green and Gold Awards program collected over $8000 to purchase awards. The kids had a busy year as they spent countless hours getting their projects ready to be exhibited at the fair. This year we had 50 market steers, 6 breeding beef projects, 14 dairy goats, 15 dogs, 7 cats, 18 horses, 10 market goats, 6 breeding meat goat projects, 5 pens of market poultry, 21 breeding/pet chicken projects, 2 pens of market rabbits, 40 breeding/pet rabbits, 92 market swine, 6 breeding swine projects, 40 market lambs, 12 breeding sheep, 15 cloverbuds, 5 dutch oven/cooking projects, 4 cake decorating and 12 teen leadership projects!! With 24 Belt Buckles and a multitude of other prizes awarded, and 127 Market animals sold through the livestock sale. Thank you to all of our awards sponsors, 4-H volunteers, and families for all that you did to make this year successful for our kids!
