Poultry Show and Sale Sept. 7
The Annual 4-H Poultry Show and Sale will be held Saturday, Sept. 7th at 8:30 A.M. The Show will be held at the 4-H Show-barn in Benton. Thirty-four 4-H members from across Polk County started their poultry project last Spring when they received 12 baby chicks provided by the Polk County 4-H Clubs. The 4-H members have been responsible for the care of the chicks and will bring 3 pullets to the show and compete for Grand Champion 4-H pullet. Other awards will also be given. After the show the 90 pullets will be auctioned off with the money going to the 4-H Clubs. 4-H members in the project have worked hard this past summer raising their pullets for this Saturday’s Show. The pullets which are back sex link pullets are good layers and will produce high quality farm fresh eggs for many years. The Polk County 4-H Office encourages everyone interested in purchasing pullets to come to the show and sale on Sept. 7th at 8:30 A.M. Pictured are Sanders and Becky Whaley who will serve as Judges for this year’s Show. The Polk County 4-H Program is open at all youth ages 9 - 19.
