4-H’ers’ preparations well underway for fair

Jun 21, 2018

4-H students purchase chicks, raise them for the fair.

The chicks are here which means fair is near.

The Washington County Extension Office housed 204 chicks the afternoon of May 30 for the standardized production broiler class.

4-H’ers enrolled in this class purchase and raise a dozen chicks and then bring the three most similar and best in weight to compete at the fair in July.

These chicks were hatched and delivered to 4-H’ers withen a 24 hour time frame.

Washington County 4-H’ers, club leaders, volunteers and Extension staff are busy preparing for the Washington County Fair with project preparations, livestock workouts, and registration deadlines.
