Some 4-H clubs may have additional club dues. These are due to the club and not to the Extension Office.

Due to the inclement weather being predicted for Saturday, the Custer County Market Beef Weigh-in is being POSTPONED until February 27th.

If February 27th does not work for you, surrounding counties will also be conducting weigh-ins.

March 7 - Valley County’s weigh-in at the Valley County Fairgrounds in Ord, 1:00-2:00 p.m. March 13 - Dawson County’s weigh-in at Darr North Feedlot, 8:00-10:30 a.m.

As in the past, if you choose to weigh-in at another county, your animal will not be eligible for the rate-of-gain award at County Fair.  Also, before you weigh-in at another county, be sure to call them to make sure it is still being held.
