This is such a year for the record books. Years from now, we will talk about 2020 and hopefully be reminded of things we learned and how we coped. As our state is consumed with decisions on fairs and tempers are high, it’s important to discuss why Iowa youth participate in 4-H and emphasize the educational benefits of what a 4-H livestock project provides.
