2021 Fillmore County 4-H/FFA Beef Weigh In

We are hoping to still have beef weigh in for the 4-H/FFA market beef exhibitors, but it will not be business as usual as you may have guessed. If Fillmore County or Nebraska as a state are in the red on the DHHS dial on January 9th, 2021, beef weigh in will be postponed. In order to follow DHM’s and limit contact the following measures will be followed:

The Farmers & Ranchers College was formed in January 2000 with the purpose of providing high quality, dynamic, up to date educational workshops for area agricultural producers in south central Nebraska through a collaborative effort between business, industry and higher education leaders. Furthermore, the Farmers & Ranchers College will provide the tools necessary so that agricultural producers will be able to respond positively to these changes using a profitable decision-making process.
