After a tremendous year of livestock education and youth leadership, we are continuing our youth livestock leadership program to ensure that youth voice is driving the learning and development of our livestock projects. Read this article for more information on how to join!

All 4-H members and volunteers are encouraged to attend the Federation Meeting on Thursday, October 5 at 7:15 pm at the Extension Office. There is our 4-H Open House that same evening from 5:30 pm to 7 pm that help is needed at as well. All Club Leaders, Livestock Superintendents, and Ambassadors are strongly encouraged to attend.

Calling all youth in grades 6th and up! Are you eager to make change in your community alongside your peers? Do you love paying it forward? Would you like to be a role model for younger kids? We think you’d be a great addition to the Waseca County 4-H Ambassador team!


Each day, 33 children are injured in an agricultural related incident and every 3 days, a child dies in such an incident. University of Minnesota Extension is offering a Youth Farm Safety Day to educate youth about farm hazards and how to prevent farm accidents from happening.


Do you hope to exhibit with 4-H at the Minnesota State Fair? All 4-H livestock exhibitors must complete livestock quality assurance training. Youth in 3-5 grades who exhibit in the swine project are also asked to complete this training.
