Hello!

As I write this, Krystal is getting candy ready for all the kids that will be in costumes, most likely under their heavy coats, for the Halloween parade. 

After cold few days, and the office being closed Wednesday, it is good to see some moisture. I know it isn't in the ideal form, but it is still good, nonetheless. 

It has been a busy fall with many meetings and planning events for 4-H youth.

Hello folks! As the month of July turned into August, the Extension Service, 4-H members, and youth have been sweating to get ready for fairs across the state. The last week in July, I traveled to Springfield to judge leathercraft at the Baca County Fair. That Friday I attended the Cheyenne County Fair to judge the Round Robin show. As a new agent, this was a great experience for me, as I got to see how other counties work and the vast number and variety of projects out there.

So, you joined 4-H and you bought yourself your first animal to show at the county fair this year. But now what? What do I feed? How do I clip? What should I do in the show ring? These are all thoughts that have run through every showman's minds at one point in their career.

This year Prowers County 4-H held their first ever mini livestock boot camps. These were held June 11- 13 with each night being a different pairing of species all the way from rabbits to market cattle.  

4-H Helping Hands Spread Holiday Cheer to Prowers County Nursing Homes 

PROMO 4-h


In the spirit of giving, Prowers County 4-H members participated in a community service put on by the 4-H county council officer. This year 4-H members assisted in putting together twenty-four fleece blankets for Lamar and Holly nursing home residents. The members also designed Christmas cards to give to each resident who received a blanket. The blankets were completed in record time by nine members, so there was even time for holiday games.
