Animal Science Survey

During 2020, many changes were made to the way the animal science portion of the Wayne County 4-H program was presented – we want to know which changes worked (or didn’t work) for you! Were Zoom meetings more convenient for you? Did you miss having in-person Skillathon? Let us know by completing the animal science survey at

Junior Fair Livestock Checks

Keep an eye on your mailbox in the coming days – the target date for mailing of Junior Fair livestock checks is October 26. In light of the financial impact of COVID-19, the Fair Board has voted to deduct an additional 2% from the livestock sale checks this year to help offset the expenses arising from this year’s fair.

All exhibitors who receive a trophy, plaque, or other award sponsored by a donor are expected to send a thank you note to the sponsor.  Thank you cards will be provided with your award – please turn in your unsealed card to the Junior Fair office by the end of the fair.  The name and address of the sponsor can be found on the award.  If you have trouble locating your award sponsor, please contact the Junior Fair office.
