It is hard to believe that it is time to get enrolled in Union County 4-H already. Adventures await for all Union County Youth. Kindergarten - 3rd Grade have a great Clover Kids program available while those grades 4th - 12th have traditional and specialized clubs available.

Page County Extension is offering Women Managing Cattle on November 6, 13, and 20. This successful program has been held in Red Oak, Oskaloosa, and Coon Rapids. The participants have been women who run large and small cattle operators, women thinking about starting a cow-calf herd, and women who want to know more to help their husbands. I am glad we can offer the course in southwest Iowa.
