Feb. 27 Market Beef Weigh-Ins – The market beef weigh-ins will not be required and there will no longer be a rate of gain minimum to be first or second in any class at the Buffalo County Fair.  To be eligible for the Rate of Gain contest, the market beef will need to be weighed at an official 4-H weigh in which can be at any other county 4-H weigh in day.  Buffalo County 4-H weigh in date is set for Saturday, February 27 from 10 a.m.

The Special Garden Project is a way to offer 4-H members the chance to grow unusual and fun projects in their gardens. The 2021 Special Garden Project is focused on the tasty Hakurei Turnip. These are not your grandmother’s turnips. Hakurei is a white salad turnip that is smooth, round and at its best when harvested under 2”. The roots can be eaten raw or cooked and the tops can also be cooked.
