press play to hear from Washington County 4-H Youth Coordinator Kati Peiffer

Poultry minded youth are being encouraged to get involved in the 4-H Market Broiler project. It’s for 4-Hers grades 5-12. Washington County Youth Coordinator Katie Peiffer says competitors receive the birds on the same date, and raise them until the fair, where their projects will be judged in a variety of categories. Peiffer says the birds will be shipped to members’ homes in early July. Each participant then exhibits one pen of five broilers at the state fair. Entry forms are available at the Extension Office and are due June 1st.
