The 2020 4-H Fair did Happen for our Youth. As our 4-H Family by Family Livestock Shows were closed to the public, only immediate household members could attend, we are excited to provide this streaming option. Please share our YouTube Channel - "Live Streaming of 4-H Livestock Shows" - with those that would enjoy seeing the show as it happened. 4-H results are also posted.

Attention all 12 to 15 year olds who are interested in learning more about Nebraska agriculture.  This is the second year for youth in Adams County to 1) learn more about modern agriculture production practices, 2) develop communication skills allowing them to confidently advocate for production agriculture, 3) recognize the diversity of Nebraska agriculture, and 4) given the opportunity to tour a wide variety of operations and gain knowledge from producers across the state.  To apply to be part of the second Adams/Webster BRAG Class in 2020, complete and submit the application by Friday, January 3, 2020 to the Extension Office.  The application may be found below.
