The Utah State University Extension 4-H State Contests were held Monday, July 15, through Wednesday, July 17, on the USU campus. Nearly 300 Utah 4-Hers participated in a variety of competitions, and winners may receive an invitation to participate in the national competition at Western National Roundup in Denver, Colo., Jan. 9 to 12, 2014. In addition to competing, 4-H youth engaged in educational, social and service opportunities as they learned such skills as proper nutrition, rocketry, animal science and family science.

On Saturday, June 1 4-H and FFA members from around the county and surrounding areas gathered at the Morgan County Fairgrounds for the June Livestock Show. Students from grades 3 to 12 presented show steers and lambs to be judged in market and showmanship classes. In the market classes, the animals were put into groups based on their weight and were judged on their build and the quality of the animal. In the showmanship classes, students were divided by grade into senior, intermediate and junior showmanship groups. The students were then judged on their knowledge and ability to handle their animal and their animal’s appearance and behavior.

As Morgan County residents watch as the last patches of snow melt away, they often wish for better weather and the luxuries of summer.  Beautiful lawns, trees that are healthy enough to let children climb in while bearing delicious fruits, and vegetables overflowing onto our neighbors’ properties are often things people dream about but think they must wait until warm weather to prepare.  Now is the time to begin planning and preparing for your summer gardening and fall feast.

For over 100 years, 4-H has been giving kids useful skills and wholesome recreation.  The 4-H program in Morgan County, as well as many counties throughout the state, has been limited to children in the third grade and older.  The Utah State University Extension Office has been working on bringing a program called Cloverbuds to Morgan County that will involve students in Kindergarten through second grade.  These students will have the opportunity to “learn while doing.”

In September when most are getting adjusted to back to school schedules and gearing up for fall, the Morgan County Fair board will already be starting to plan next year’s fair. It is such a big undertaking that many do not even stop to think of the countless hours and service that the members of the fair board put in. Whether it be selling booths, weed whacking the grounds, figuring out garbage and disposal, making banners and signs, planning events or the many, many other things needed to get ready for the upcoming fair. For those walking around enjoying the fair, there is a tendency to take for granted all of the hard work that has been put in to create such a fun and inviting atmosphere.

Big Thanks to the Morgan County Fair Board
