Horse updates…

  • RESCHEDULED Wyoming County 4-H Summer Horse Show: Due to inclement weather, the summer horse show has been rescheduled for Saturday September 18th. If you already have pre-registered for this event, entry and payment will be held for the rescheduled date. If you would like a refund, please contact the 4-H office. The entry form is still available online, and if you did not register but would like to attend the rescheduled show, you can still enter!

meat animal auction exhibitors…

  • Holly will be sending out an email update to exhibitor families this weekend in regard to submitting pictures of projects for online bidding through Kent’s Auction website. Watch your email for details!

Rabbit, cavy & poultry exhibitors…

  • Watch for an email from the 4-H office next week as to how we will be handling the large amount of entries we have received. There is a very good chance that clover bud members will be asked to bring their project animals for just the day of the show and then take home the same day. Stay tuned as we finalize our counts…
