Animal Science Day

Coming to Geneva on Sunday, April 2nd is a short animal science program (FREE) which will offer a livestock judging contest, a face to face Quality Assurance program, tips for your livestock projects and other fun hands-on animal science activities. This requires a lot of planning and assistance so if you are interested in participating, sign up by March 27th.  There must be a minimum of 25 youth in order for this program to occur; invite your friends from neighboring counties too! RSVP to the Fillmore County Extension office at 402-759-3712 or by email Brandy at brandy.vandewalle@unl.edu

This spring, Nebraska 4-H is asking alumni to raise their hands! We believe that every child deserves the chance to succeed. If you’re a 4-H alumni or know someone who is, we’re asking for your help in spreading the word. Together we can help 4-H provide the hands-on learning that empowers kids across America with the skills to handle what life throws at them.

Private Applicator Training for producers who apply presticides on their own farm.  May attend any of these locations or may also attend Crop Production Clinics.

4-H Online Enrollment is now open for 2017 4-H year.  This will be very much like enrollment last year.  After opening into the program select that you have a profile.

Keep up on all the different programs offered in and around our county such as Emerald Ash Borer and Youth Ag Safety Day.
