Geauga Dairymen

The Geauga Dairymen 4-H Club attended Dairy Palooza on May 3 at the Wayne County Fairgrounds. Older members attended quality assurance that was specific to dairy. The younger kids attended sessions, which talked about handling animals, learning about total mix rations while making trail mix and making beautiful paintings.

The club shared lunch with 150 or more attendants. In the afternoon, club members attended more sessions to learn about clipping and blending top-lines. They also learned tips about showmanship from a local judge and made ice cream with liquid nitrogen at the end of the day.

The next meeting is on May 24 when the club will participate in the Geauga County Department on Aging’s spring cleanup event. The members will clean up an elderly neighbor’s yard. (Submitted by Emma Niehus, news reporter)

Geauga Beef and Swine

Geauga Beef and Swine’s last meeting was April 6. Members did their pledges and went over minutes, treasurer’s report, and the livestock sale report. They reviewed old business, which was about getting candy bars to sell.

The group also went over new business, which was that quality assurance is May 10 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Geauga County Fairgrounds.

At the next meeting, a 4-H ambassador will come and talk about becoming an ambassador and getting involved. The next meeting is May 18. (Submitted by Haley Frank, news reporter)
