Green County youth find state conference ‘never disappoints’ Isabella Carnes, Jackie Nusbaum, Katie Nusbaum, Lorelei Pagett, and Royce Brauer, all from Green County, joined hundreds of 4-H youth attending the 98th annual 4-H & Youth Conference at the UW-Madison campus June 25-28. Green County’s group of outstanding individuals numbered with about 400 other young people representing UW-Extension’s 4-H Youth Development program in celebrating the 98th anniversary. Isabella Carnes, a 3-time Youth Conference delegate, said this about her experience: “Conference never disappoints. The message that comes from the speakers or even the other youth is truly amazing. I was so happy to be able to spend conference with some great other kids from Green County. Remember, ‘We are better together.’” The annual four-day conference gives youth a chance to learn about a variety of 4-H and other youth programs, experience hands-on learning in a university campus atmosphere and strengthen life skills such as communication and leadership. Participants also gain knowledge to share back home, and have the opportunity to exchange ideas and form friendships with youth from around the state. The delegates attended workshops and assemblies developed around the theme “Leadership…the Road Less Traveled” which highlighted leadership, individual responsibility, goal setting, healthy living, and living up to

potential. Workshop topics included everything from communication arts to building leadership skills, healthy living, STEM topics, youth citizenship, and a host of other exciting subjects. Students also participated in a variety of community service projects designed to stimulate interest in replicating similar projects in their own communities. Additionally, Royce Brauer took advantage of the opportunity to participate in the Wisconsin 4-H Drama Company and performed in a production that the whole conference delegation attended. In order to participate in Wisconsin 4-H Drama Company, Royce had to go through an application process this past winter. Wisconsin 4-H Foundation provided financial support for this conference.

4-H dairy judging teams excel at area contest Green County youth participated June 29 in the Southwest District Area Animal Science Day Contest at Lafayette County Fairgrounds in Darlington. This event culminated more than 3 months of weekly practices at different farms around Green County. These dairy project youth learned to evaluate dairy cows and heifers using the PDCA (Purebred Dairy Cattle Association) Dairy Cow Unified Scorecard and to place classes using this methodology to rank animals in the four major categories – frame, dairy strength, udder and rear feet and legs. In addition, juniors (youth under 14 years of age) learned to answer Type Analysis Questions (TAQs) on each class. Seniors (youth 14 years and over) learned to give oral reasons on how they placed a particular class. At the district contest, each individual had eight classes to judge. Each class had four animals to place. Juniors also had to answer 10 TAQs for two of the classes and write reasons as a team for one class. Seniors had to present oral reasons individually on three of the classes.

Both junior and senior teams performed well. The senior team did tremendously well and placed 1st overall in both reasons and judging. They will be heading to the state contest later this summer. Out of 36 youth, the senior team individual overall placing and members are as follows: Cole Mahlkuch - 2nd (Juda Jolly Juniors), Brian McCullough - 3rd (Juda Jolly Juniors), Clayton Mahlkuch - 6th (Juda Jolly Juniors), Rachel McCullough - 8th (Juda Jolly Juniors), and Marissa Vosberg - 11th (Young Americans). The Junior team also did well, with Deven Gilson placing 3rd overall (York), with teammates Emma Hendrickson (Dayton Dairylanders), Ava Hendrickson (Dayton Dairylanders), Grace Gold (Next Generation), Taylor Svendson (Dougherty Creek), and Ellie Modaff (Jolly Mixers) completing the team. Coaching this year for the junior team was Rachel Gilson. Senior team coaches were Ryan Smith and Mike Marean. Thank you to everyone who helped support the youth this year, including the host farms, parents, coaches and UW- Extension staff. Congratulations to all the youth who

Meat animal project participation promotes ideals and importance of livestock improvement. It provides 4-H and FFA members with an opportunity to sell meat animals at the County Fair. Many 4-H and FFA members use their financial incentives to fulfill dreams of receiving a college education or obtaining foundation stock for a future farming operation. Exhibitors are recognized for selecting, feeding, fitting, and showing of project animals. Anyone interested in supporting the youth of Green County can buy an animal at the auction. Your business may benefit from valuable exposure and advertising with your purchase. If you enjoy and appreciate quality meat from quality animals, plan to attend and participate.
