Livestock Premium Sale: Saturday, August 3 at 2 pm

Every year the office contacts past and potential individuals and businesses to come to the Livestock 4-H Premium Sale, but it is more meaningful if the request comes from a 4-H'er themselves. A good place to start is reaching out to business which your family does business with throughout the year and asking them to attend. The office has created a sample letter which families could take when visiting with individuals or businesses.
