Cedar County 4-H

Online Livestock Judging - During this unusual time, it is extremely difficult for youth to have the opportunity to practice livestock judging and prepare for future contests.  Now you can practice livestock judging from home! Start by sorting through the class and working on your reasons.

Looking for learning opportunities you can do from home? Nebraska 4-H is now offering a variety of virtual learning experiences, such as Living Room Learning (Tuesdays & Thursdays) and Boredom Buster Challenges (Mondays & Wednesdays).

The northeast district counties participate in this trip every three years. Registration and down payment is due May 1, 2020 to the Wayne County Extension Office.

On March 13, 2019 northeast Nebraska was struck with one of the worst floods in over 50 years. Many people were effected, and much damage was done. The Cedar County Fair grounds took on the most damage it has ever received in its 100 plus year history. For two days the grounds were under water damaging buildings, destroying roads and fences, and destroying a 56 stall livestock building.
