#socialdistancing: Create Physical Distance but Stay in TouchIt may be easier to stay six feet from the nearest person but that doesn’t mean that farmers and ranchers aren’t having to cope with uncertainty. Learning to recognize your stressors and how to manage stress can help you personally and those around you. If you recognize someone in distress, use a caring approach in listening to them, and then connect them to resources.
Virtual Cedar County Livestock Judging Contest - Due to changes in the fair this year to address the COVID-19 pandemic, our livestock judging contest has moved online. The overall purpose of this activity is for youth to learn the process of good decision-making as well as learn to select high quality livestock. We encourage our 4-H members to give it a try. It is open for all ages including adults. Contest will end July 22.
