From Kathy Grau
Are you tired of mediocre quality meat? Want a fun place to bring the family? Do you need a business write off while getting advertisement?
Come to the Washtenaw County 4-H fair. There is no entry fee, which makes it the cheapest petting farm around! There are education exhibits posted throughout the barns, so you can learn about the animals. The 4-H participants are also happy to answer questions about their animals. If you like to watch the kids show their animals here is the schedule: Poultry is at 10am on Tuesday; Feeder calves and beef are at 4pm on Tuesday; Swine are at 8am on Wednesday; Rabbits are at 9am on Wednesday; Sheep are at 6pm on Wednesday; Goats are at 8:30am on Thursday; Dairy is at 9:30am on Thursday.
Thursday, July 25h at 6:30 is the livestock auction. This is where you can buy homegrown quality meat raised by the 4-H youth. There will be assistance to help with processing. You can enjoy the meat for yourself or donate it to shelters and get a tax write off for your business. The kids work very hard and purchasing animals from the 4-H livestock auction is a great way to support the youth in our communities.
4-H Livestock is top quality- the kids work hard to raise their animals to be the best that they can be. Purchasing from 4-H members helps promote the principles of 4-H.
