Livestock Project registration deadline and meeting

Friday, Jan. 29 at 4 p.m. is the deadline for signing up for any 4-H livestock project for 2010. You must declare any and all livestock projects to the 4-H Coordinator at 264-5931. Members will be able to drop any livestock project after this date.

If the Extension office does not have your enrollment form, enrollment fees and livestock project/s entered, you will not be able to take this project, thus you will not be able to show at the 2010 Archuleta County Fair.

All 4-H Livestock members are required to attend the mandatory Livestock Meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 1. There are no exceptions to this rule.

4-H Handbooks for new members

 If you are new to 4-H and have not received a 4-H Handbook, please call Sandy at 264-5931. Many 4-H families received this book at the new family orientation. We want to make sure all new members are prepared for this 4-H year.

Poisonous plants

Protect your investment and keep your animals safe! Register now to attend a Breeze Workshop concerning Poisonous Plants and New Developments in Rangeland Grasses.

The class will be held 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2, at the Archuleta County Extension Office.

The workshop fee is $10 per person and includes workshop materials and lunch if registration is received (not postmarked) by Jan. 28. If received after this date, there will be a $5 fee added.

This workshop is appropriate for producers, private landowners, land management agency personnel and veterinarians. The session will highlight the most recent research and management alternatives for western rangelands.
