Swine Showmanship (Part I)
by Randy Williams,
Lincoln/East Adams 4-H Program Coordinator

I am definitely a beef cattle judge, however, I have judged and witnessed many swine shows and judging classes over the years to know that even though, watching hogs being driven from outside the ring looks easy, it can be challenging from inside the ring as a showman.

There are certain basics in showing swine that even the youngest showman can work to achieve. While these ideas may seem to be very detailed, they are the keys to making the showmanship experience as positive as it can be. Always keep in mind while you prepare for your . . . Complete Article
Saturday April 2nd the Birds of Play and Cool Threads 4-H clubs invite you to join them at the Ritzville, WA Park Gazebo at 10 AM for a photography program presented by Barbara Heimbigner.  Bring a camera.

Lunch on your own or bring a lunch.

Meet at the Ritzville, WA Park Gazebo at 1PM we will have an afternoon of geo-caching If you have a hand held GPS please bring it.  If you want to take something out of a standard geo-cache you need to bring something a similar value to put in the cache.
(key rings, jewlery, travel bugs, lapel pins, miniatures, sports pins, organization pins,patches etc.)
