Washington County 4-H members participated in Ak-Sar-Ben livestock competitions recently in Omaha, Nebraska.  Amy Green, Washington County 4-H Youth Coordinator says Ak‑Sar‑Ben is a livestock competition where any youth can participate.  This year breeding beef, feeder calves, market beef and swine was shown.
