Reporter Report from 4-H Council April 2021 Meeting:
Each year Colorado 4-H members participate in a variety of events, learning opportunities, and contests across the state and within their counties. Does 4-H make a difference after these members become adults?
Please join us, Sunday, April 18, 2021, at the Kiowa County Community Building. We will be hosting a Livestock Show Animal Selection Workshop lead by Yuma County Extension Agent Travis Taylor. Taylor was the Junior Livestock Show Judge for the 2020 Kiowa County Fair.
Taylor will be discussing the ins and outs of selecting livestock for show season.
The workshop should last about an hour with a question and answer session. Estimated start time is 3:30 pm following the Prairie Queen 4-H Meeting.
Prairie Queen Cloverbuds
The Prairie Queen Cloverbuds meet Sunday March 21, 2021 at the Eads Community Building to learn about plants.
The Cloverbuds were shown many different samples of soil and asked it the plants would grow. There was potting soil, clay, sticks, rocks, cotton and plastic gloves. It was determined that the rocks would not work well because the seeds just stayed on the top.
Kiowa County 4-H Council Report from February 2021 Meeting:
Hello, Kiowa County!
I hope that you all are doing well. I know that we have all been wishing we could just get back to normal. Unfortunately, we do not know when this will happen.

As everyone knows many events and activities have looked different in these strange times of dealing with Coivd-19. Kiowa county was fortune enough to have interview judging for exhibit day. I was extremely glad that we could at least do this, as I think it is one of the most important parts of project completion.
This process helps members to be more confident with judging and answering questions that concern a project that they have made themselves.
