  • Participating in livestock programs are one of the most recognized aspects of 4-H, but along with learning about animals young people can develop positive character traits to become the leaders of tomorrow.
    Livestock projects allow 4-H’ers to get firsthand experience in raising and caring for an animal. Caring for an animal teaches youth responsibility. As the animal grows, young people can take pride in knowing they helped the animal develop and mature.

  • My horse is Biscuit. His color is called dun. This means he is a very light tan and he has a dark stripe running down his back. He also has zebra striping on his legs and his ears are edged with black. I’ve often heard it said that the pretty ones are crazy. Biscuit, while not crazy, is mildly neurotic. This horse has never met anything useful that wasn’t scary. He spooks at the smell of fly spray, hoof dressing, de-wormer, and anything else that he considers strange and unusual.

  • Are you getting ready to put away your canning equipment for the winter?  Take some time now to ensure that everything will be in good shape and ready to go when summer comes again.
    Before storing your pressure canner, clean the vent and safety valve, following the manufacturer’s instructions. If your canner has a gasket or sealing ring in the lid, clean and check it as well. If it is hard or cracked, it should be replaced before next canning season. If needed, a new gasket can be ordered from the manufacturer or found at a local hardware store.
