Scotts Bluff & Morrill 4-H

You Are Invited to Get Groovy at the

Far Out, Funky 4-H Achievement Fandango!

This will be a celebration of all of our fine 4-H achievements this year and the fabulous decade of the 70’s.  So don your finest polyester leisure suit and platform shoes and enjoy an afternoon of awesome awards and some groovy goodies.

A limited number of 4-H members have the opportunity to catch a calf each January during the National Western Stock Show held in Denver.

Successful catchers will receive their calf in May 2018 to begin feeding the calf to market finish.  Youth must show and sell their calf at the 2019 National Western Stock Show. The calves used for this contest are bought with money donated by business sponsors.

The Nebraska Association of Fair Managers will award a $500 scholarship to one qualifying 4-H male and a $500 scholarship to one qualifying 4-H female who are graduating seniors in the State of Nebraska and who plan to continue with post high school education.

The word contest (or competition) stirs an enormous amount of emotion. Some relish the excitement, while others want to avoid it at all costs. However you feel about competition, it is a fact of life.

Youth compete in speech, DECA, music, sports, and of course, 4-H. But competition does not end with graduation. Youth also compete for scholarships and college acceptance, while adults are in competition for jobs, promotions, marketing and sales.

Effective January 1, 2017, all livestock producers that use antibiotic medicated feeds to prevent, treat or control animal health issues will be required to get a written order or Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) from a Veterinarian to purchase and feed these feeds.  The regulation will only affect antibiotics administered in feed or water for livestock.
