By participating in this program, youth are able to keep record of their involvement from year to year. There are opportunities to compete at a county level and go on to compete at state, as well as national. All clover kids and 4-Hers are eligible to complete a career portfolio. More Information Here

Diamond Clover - Due November 1, 2017

Throughout the 4-H year we have taken a multitude of pictures during 4-H Workshops and other events. There have been several requests for copies of the pictures, so we thought we would make them available to everyone. If you find a good one of your child that you want to download, please feel free. You may also use some of these pictures as you finish up your Career Porfolios.

We will try to maintain this photo link throughout the year so that you too may enjoy seeing what fun your kids are having at 4-H events.

A new online tool from Nebraska Extension aims to connect farmers and cattle producers to encourage mutually beneficial agreements to use crop residue for grazing. The Crop Residue Exchange tool provides a searchable database of cropland available for grazing.

After creating an account, farmers can list available cropland by drawing their plot on an interactive map and entering information on the type of residue, fencing, water availability and dates available.
