Washington County Share-a-Calf applications available
The Washington County Cattlemen’s Association is planning a Share-A-Calf program again this year. This is a unique opportunity that allows 4-H’ers to partner with a Washington County cattleman to get a calf in December that will be shown against other Share-a-calves at the Washington County Fair. The cattlemen serve as great references to breed, feed and grooming questions.
Another advantage of the program is that the 4-H’er or FFA member does not have to pay for the calf until it is sold after the county fair. All Washington County 4-H’ers and FFA members are eligible to apply. Applications are due by Nov. 15, to the Washington County Extension Office. They are available from the Washington County Extension Office or the Web site at <http://www.extension.iastate.edu/washington/news/apply-4-h-share-calf-november-15>.
