    Whether leading a club, chaperoning a group of youth at 4-H camp, teaching new skills or helping judge a speech or demonstration contest, adult volunteers are an essential and invaluable part of 4-H. In fact, many 4-H programs would not be possible without the help of caring, adult volunteers.

  • If you have a less-than-productive grass pasture or hayfield, following a few simple renovation techniques could increase the field’s productivity, according to Garry Lacefield, UK Extension forage Specialist.  Some things you can do include planting a legume such as red clover, controlling pests and adding lime and fertilizer. Be aware though, some techniques require you to start as early as the middle of February.
