Osage City Fair - Junior Superintendents

It takes several people to make a fair run successfully and hopefully you will take advantage of this opportunity. Junior superintendents, ages 10+, are needed for the Osage City Fair. This is a great leadership/citizenship opportunity within your project area.   If you are interested, please contact Kara Thompson at kara.thompson1977@gmail.com by April 17.  
Duties of a Junior Superintendent include but are not limited to assisting the superintendent at the fair, project check-in, helping with the flow of judging projects, write comments for judges and placing ribbons on projects.  Please direct all questions to Kara.

Osage County Beef Tagging

OS Co Beef Tagging April Date

Since the onset of the COVID-19, things have been fluid for us here in the 4-H world. With that being said, since the first original information regarding the cancellation of weigh-ins, KSRE and Kansas 4-H have now said that we CAN have tag in dates as long as we are using the recommended "social distancing". With this being said, we feel that we can now offer two dates to TAG ONLY.

The next date for OS Co Beef Tagging ONLY will be  Wednesday, April 15th at the Osage County Extension office from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

We ask that you have your animals tied in the trailer and you will have someone with you that can go in and tag your own animal/s. We will take all precautions necessary to disinfect our tagger and use social distancing so we ask that you please do the same and not get out of your vehicle until it is your turn to be tagged. 

We will also have available all state paperwork and DNA envelopes available for those of you planning to go on to KJLS or State fair. Again, things in the 4-H world are ever-changing so we ask for your patience as we all work through all of this together. 
Lastly, if you have any questions or concerns please email Janae at jmcnally@ksu.edu.

OS Co 4-H Ambassadors

A 4-H Ambassador promotes the 4-H program to youth, parents, potential leaders, donors, and the general public.  The best spokesperson for this job is teen 4-H members and nothing promotes the program better than those members sharing their experiences so others can see and hear what has been accomplished.  The Osage County Ambassador Team is for 4-H members, 9th grade and older, and who have completed at least two years of 4-H club work.  This program will replace the selection of King and Queen.  The team will be selected this spring.  Contact the Osage County Extension Office for more information or questions.
