4-H Clover
March 26, 2020

The global pandemic COVID-19 is changing our world daily and even hourly. The number one priority for Iowa 4-H is the safety of our staff, 4-H volunteers, 4-H families, and partners.  For this reason all weigh-ins across the state are cancelled and Livestock ID for State Fair will be adjusted.
