Thursday we will meet at Wilkerson’s feedlot on Co. Rd. 17 around the corner from Henry Pig (Co. Rd. K). No practice the next Monday the 18th. We will meet at the Extension Office on Thursday 6/21 to work on reasons.
The following week is 4-H Camp and there will be no formal practice. However, the Putnam Co. Fair is that week and if available I encourage the youth to travel down to Ottawa and watch either the swine, sheep, or goat shows.
We will pick things back up on July 2nd.

I apologize for the late notice however we will have to push our practice at Fedderke’s back to Thursday at 6:00. The Fedderke family had an event come up and will be unavailable this evening. We will meet in the office instead at 6:00 today.
Remember no practice next Monday on Memorial Day.
Due to the hard rains there will not be livestock judging practice this evening. We were scheduled to meet at Time Brinkman’s in Holgate but it is too muddy to have a good place to evaluate the cattle. We will reschedule practice at Brinkman’s later in the summer.
We will meet at the Extension office on Thursday to keep working on reasons. Next Monday we will be at Fedderke’s to evaluate beef cattle.
As we move to evaluating livestock on farm we move practice back to 6:00 p.m. as it will take some travel time to get to where the livestock are.
