Allamakee County 4-H’ers expand their knowledge in the swine project area ...

The Iowa 4-H Youth Development Program provides opportunities for youth to develop skills that they can use now and throughout their lives. Iowa 4-H builds upon a century of experience as it fosters positive youth development that is based on the needs and strengths of youth, their families, and communities. With the Allamakee County 4-H/FFA Swine Weigh-In scheduled for April 6, youth are working to select their swine projects for the 2019 Allamakee County Fair. 36 youth and parents recently participated in a Swine Workshop, pictured above, to learn more about the project area. The workshop was held Monday, March 25 at the Allamakee County Extension Office. The goal of the event was to provide exhibitors education on swine selection, swine nutrition, daily care and management, pre-show preparation, showmanship, and judging. AJ and Kim Lewis of Center Point presented on these topics. Ellingson Elevator sponsored the workshop and provided supper.
