Today's Features

  • Raising small poultry flocks on the farm or in the backyard has become very popular.  During the last few years, we have been tickled to see several 4-H families get involved in raising poultry and showing their prized birds at the county fair.

    Hous-ing is very important when it comes to raising poultry.  The most important things to remember when choosing the type of housing are provisions for adequate shelter from weather, adequate ventilation, and protection from predators.

  • Because of the overwhelming drug problem that is affecting our county, state and nation today, both youth and adults need an opportunity to learn more about the physical, emotional, financial and legal consequences of getting involved with prescription and illicit drugs. 

    To assist in this endeavor, Truth and Consequences: The Choice is Yours is a Cooperative Extension enrichment activity designed to show students the impact of getting involved with illicit and legal substances.
