Throughout April, Laura Beyenhof, Lyon County K-12 Program Assistant with ISU Extension and Outreach, and her 77 Clover Kids spent a lot of time with “Dot and Dash,” robots who teach youth to code all while they play. These 12 interactive robots, along with their compatible tablets and accessories, were made possible thanks to a matching fund grant received from the Lyon County Riverboat Foundation.

     The 4-H Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA) program will again be in place for the current 4-H year. FSQA stands for Food Safety Quality Assurance. This program helps 4-H producers understand their role in producing food, and help them make wise, ethical decisions related to food production. If you exhibit the following livestock are required to be FSQA certified: Beef, Bottle/Bucket Calf, Dairy, Goat, Swine, Sheep, Rabbit (if it is not a pet project), and Poultry. You MUST become FSQA certified to exhibit your animals at the County Fair and/or Iowa State Fair.
