Food Preservation Information Cards

These are Food Preservation Information Cards for 4-H’ers to use as a guide to the information that needs to be included with the exhibit. It is not required that they use THIS card, but they do need to include this information in their supporting information and recipe for all Food Preservation exhibits for this fair season!  Links to the document are listed below in several versions as well as on the 4-H Forms page.

Spring Fever? Spring Chores!

Improve Pastures NOW!

            You’re probably a month or more away before you think about using pastures for grazing unless you stockpiled some forage, or left extra grass ungrazed last fall. Usually the first thing you do to improve your pastures is to fertilize them in the spring, but fertilizer is becoming more expensive. What if there was a way to improve your pastures without the cost of commercial fertilizers?
