There were some great workshops and motivational speakers at the WA State 4-H Forum last weekend in Pasco. Unfortunately, I had other obligations and couldn't attend the whole weekend. Also - there were several different workshops that were held at the same time as a required staff training session or at the same time as other interesting workshops I attended. Randy Williams was able to attend one workshop but also had other commitments. Unfortunately, no Lincoln or (East) Adams volunteers were able to attend this year to help bring back information, tips, and "A-has" to share. :-{

Thanks to all who have submitted enrollment information to the 4hOnline system for this new 4-H year! MOST volunteers who were certified and enrolled last year are being accepted & enrolled as re-enrollments are submitted. If I have not received a leader & project list from the Club General (head) leader, your enrollment activation will be delayed till I receive. Also - there a couple of people who submitted applications last year and took training - but some certification requirements were not met. YOUTH member enrollments in the 4hOnline system will be accepted on December 1st providing they are confirmed by club enrollment managers and all New Year Club/Group requirements have been met.

There are SOME adults showing up in the 4hOnline system that were not previously enrolled and who do NOT have a 4-H Volunteer Application on file yet! It is VERY important that these adults submit an application ASAP and let us know whether you plan to attend one of the scheduled 4-H 101 Part 2 Leader Trainings. General leaders, be sure to communicate this to any of your potential new leaders! They may not receive this E-News! ALSO - be sure and provide a copy of this E-News letter to any leaders, potential leaders or families in your club who do NOT have email!

If you have ANY questions about 4-H enrollment status for individuals or Clubs/groups, be sure and contact me. My schedule will continue to flex around different obligations in November. I will get back to you as soon as possible if we miss connections.

New Antibiotic Rules Will Apply to Youth Livestock Exhibitors

From Article written by Marlys Miller,
Pork Checkoff Report Magazine Summer 2016

Even though the following article is directed to youth swine exhibitors, FDA’s Guidance 209 and the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) rule will apply to ALL large animal livestock; beef, sheep, swine, lamb and goats intended for food consumption.

For youth swine exhibitors, parents and project advisors, Jan. 1, 2017, will usher in major changes in accessing medicated feeds for show pigs. That’s when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will implement new rules, known as Guidance 209, for antibiotic use in all animals raised for food.
Antibiotics identified as medically important (to human health) will no longer be available for . . . See rest of article and a link to a video on understanding the use of medicated feeds on:
