Osage County Weigh-in/Tagging Dates
** PLEASE NOTE **
Janae McNally, Frontier District 4-H Agent, announced 4/30/19:
Due to the occurrence of the Swine PED outbreak across the United States, we have decided to forgo the swine weigh-in for Anderson County/Osage County. Consequently, there will be no swine rate of gain contest this year at the fair. Youth enrolled in the swine project will still be expected to bring all market swine (market and breeding for OS CO) to be tagged, which will occur in the member’s trailer. Anyone needing to have swine tagged for KJLS or the State Fair may also bring swine to this tagging or wait until the “last call” tagging on June 12th (see Newsletter, page 6, for more information).
The final ownership/tagging deadline for Market Beef is April 1. The final ownership/tagging deadline for all breeding animals, Market Sheep, Market Swine, Market Goat and Bucket Calf (not tagged) is May 15. A bucket calf must have been born January 1-May 1 of the current 4-H year. The ownership deadline for all Rabbits and Fowl is June 15.
Add/Drop Project Deadline
Frontier District 4-H Members have the ability to change personal information or add/drop projects at any time by logging on to 4-H Online. Members do not need to contact the Extension Office to have information changed. Adding or dropping projects must be done by May 1 in order for the member to enter in the 4-H Divisions of the Fair. Members will not be able to change project information after the deadline.
In honor of Deloris Schoepflin and Joyce Casten and to continue their commitment to 4-H, the Schoepflin and Casten families will offer scholarships for Osage County 4-H members to go to 4-H Camp or Discovery Days. Members are only allowed to receive each family scholarship once. Completed applications should be submitted to the Lyndon Extension Office by March 15. Winners will be notified by the end of March with instructions on how to register. The application is available at the link above or at the Extension Office.
