Join us for a workshop on Saturday, March 10th, 2018 from 4-6pm at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center.  4-H members will rotate through stations learning about nutrition, feeding programs, daily care, management, and animal health.  All 4-H members showing livestock at the county fair must attend a Youth for the Quality Care of Animals training, complete an online course, or test out.  This training will meet that yearly requirement.  Cost is $3 and can be paid by a prepaid coupon.  Contact the Extension Office for a $3

It's time to sell KNEB 4-H Radio Days Ads for 2018 ! KNEB generously donates air time to the Scotts Bluff County 4-H program so we can tell the community about 4-H. Each pre-scripted 30-second 4-H promotional ad, recorded by Junior Leaders, will name the sponsoring business. KNEB runs the ads on their AM and FM stations during the month of March. 4-H members sell the ads to businesses and individuals. Ads are $10 each. Sponsor information and payment are due to the Extension Office by march 9 so that the ads can be recorded and on the air by March 15.
