What is 4-H School Enrichment?

Cooperation between schools and Nebraska Extension has existed for many years in Wayne County, complementing the educational goals of both organizations.  The 4-H School Enrichment Program uses materials that are research-based and produced by specialists from the University of Nebraska—Lincoln, the National 4-H Council and various universities and organizations throughout the United States.

4-H School Enrichment resources include teacher guides, student manuals, multi-media tools, teaching kits, and staff presentations. The Nebraska Extension in Wayne County staff can teach the project to the students in the classroom or provide the materials to the teacher to use.

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).
