 NDA ADVISES POULTRY OWNERS TO WATCH FOR AVIAN INFLUENZA

Nebraska 4-H is seeking three teens to lead the Ag Innovators Experience statewide. An additional 20+ teen facilitators are also needed to help present and promote the program. The challenge for 2022 is “Unlock Ag Innovations”. It will be a visually engaging, hands-on, and culturally relevant instructive escape room challenge for youth to learn about agricultural technologies.  

Jesse Fulton, Director of Nebraska Beef Quality Assurance (BQA), will be presenting the latest on the Nebraska BQA program and certifying producers in BQA and BQA Transportation (BQAT).

 These will be the last in-person BQA & BQAT certification trainings until the Spring of 2022. Nebraska BQA will resume In-Person BQA & BQAT Certifications meetings in March/April 2022.

For those senior, high school 4-H’ers who are considering moving on to secondary education Cass County 4-H Council and Clubs have several scholarships available. Nebraska 4-H Foundation also has several scholarships that are available for you to apply.   For more information on how to apply, please click on the link below.

We love our volunteers and all that you have to offer Cass County 4-H! 

Nebraska 4-H has updated the volunteer application process within the last two years. This process was developed to provide protection for our youth and volunteers. Volunteers are identified as direct or indirect.

Direct leaders include staff, faculty, club leaders, lead teachers/presenters, studen workers, summer interns, chaperones, and any other adults and teens acting as direct supervisors or mentors to youth in a paid, unpaid or volunteer status, as part of a youth activity. Volunteers who enroll in ne.4honline.com every year complete this process as a part of the enrollment.
