Bull’s Eye 4-H Club Supports Food Pantries

Bull’s-Eye 4-H Club supported two food pantries for their fall session’s community service project. Canned goods donated by families were given to the Beverly-Waterford Food Pantry.

Livestock Sale Checks – Reminders

If you participated in selling market livestock at Waterford, County or Barlow – Just a reminder to cash/deposit your Livestock Sale checks so the boards/committees can close our their books for the year.

It’s always good to think about how that money will be handled too. Good financial practices include:

  • Save some in a savings account or investment
  • Set aside some for 2022 livestock projects
  • Support a local cause like a charity or your church
  • Spend some on something you need
