4-H Club ready for junior fair
Submitted by Kaiden Wolcott, 10, Alpha Omega Academy Online
The Geauga Beef and Swine 4-H Club met outside on Aug. 16 at the county fairgrounds in Burton. Members shared reports on their projects about chicken washing, poultry diseases and poultry showmanship. The club’s safety topic was about power outages and food safety. This year, the Great Geauga County Fair will be a junior fair only, and the Senior Fair Board has gone above and beyond to plan to make the junior fair great for kids during this time, members said. Buyers will get to decide if they want to bid online or in person for the sale that will be held on Sept. 5 with small animals starting at 2:30 p.m. in the arena. The Beef and Swine club has 14 hog projects and seven beef projects going through the sale along with many turkeys and pens of chickens. Animals will be sold by the head rather than per pound, which is a change for this year. To stay up to date on the Geauga County Junior Fair Livestock sale, visit wwww.geaugafair.com.
