Washington County youth wishing to exhibit swine or feeder calves at the Ak-Sar-Ben Livestock Exhibition this year are due next week. Amy Green, Washington County 4‑H/Youth Coordinator says DNA samples, waivers and payments are due to her office by next Friday the 15th. She says youth will not be able to nominate through the Iowa State Fair process.
The Ak-Sar-Ben show is taking place in Omaha, Nebraska in September. To get DNA collection envelopes and forms, contact Amy Green at the Washington County Extension.
