Nebraska Extension in Webster County is pleased and excited to welcome Lindsay Waechter - Mead as the new Livestock Systems Educator for the region. Please see a message below from Lindsay.
Hello! I’m mixed animal veterinarian by trade, but I hold a great deal of pride being a 4th generation Nebraska cattlewoman, raising the 5th generation of my family on the same soil as the first. Growing up in Webster County, my family farm consisted of row crops, commercial cow/calf, farrow to finish hog production and a small commercial sheep flock. Throw in a few dozen laying hens and too many barn cats and we filled the gamut of diversified agriculture. I saw veterinary medicine as my opportunity to raise my family in the place I had always called home.
February is Nebraska 4-H Month
Nebraska 4-H Month, traditionally held during February each year, is an opportunity to celebrate 4-H locally, recruit new members and volunteers, and have fun! In 2022, it will also be a time to celebrate all the ways in which 4-H helps young people find a sense of belonging. You’ll see the phrase “I BELONG” as a nod to our theme and intentions this year. There are many ways to celebrate Nebraska 4-H Month either individually or with your club or county! Below is a list of ways to get involved during the month of February.
