Empowering Youth with skills to lead for a lifetime...

April 28, 2022 

In 4-H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. We are America's largest youth development organization - empowering nearly six million young people across the United States and 140,000 across Nebraska with the skills to lead for a lifetime. We do this through clubs, camps, school enrichment, afterschool, special interest, and clover kid programs. 

Camps

4-H camps provide recreational, educational, and career exploration opportunities for all youth ages 5-18.

Since 1991, Bruce Anderson, a now retired Extension Forage Specialist, has been making is way across the air waves with his Hay and Forage Minute. When first starting out, he was broadcasted on three different stations, but more recently it has aired across as many as 50 Nebraska radio stations. Though Bruce is no longer producing these segments, the program has not gone away. Through the foundation and following that Bruce had built, the program will continue on as Pasture and Forage Minutes. With the help of Nebraska Extension specialists and educators, the program, three Pasture and Forage Minute programs will be produced per week. The voices behind the new program are Daren Redfearn (Forage Specialist), Jerry Volesky (Forage Specialist), Megan Taylor (Cropping Educator), Brad Schick (Beef Educator), and Ben Beckman (Beef Educator).
