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 Cattlemen to get a calf in December that is shown against other Share-a-calves at the 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. Interested youth should contact the Extension Office, 319-653-4811, for an application.
