" [I :-- " - V - -- AS MUCH ,S 86% OF HOUSEHOLD I! g r00CAnBERECVCLE0!! !1 I I - ' i Extension report Carrie Olson, County Extension Educator CONFERENCE JUDGING The healthy youth development of young people is the first consideration in 4-H. The County Fair plays a major role in this development and therefore the 4-H year. Big Stone County's fair is scheduled for July 23-26 at the Fairgrounds in Clinton. This is often the time when the public gets to see 4-H in action! What is the meaning behind the various colored ribbons found on the exhibits? Each exhibit displayed at the County Fair has been judged with its respective 4-H member. This is usually done in some form of conference judging. Part of the project evaluation is on the exhibit and part of it on the knowledge of the exhibitor. The evaluation is achieved through individual contact between the judge and the exhibitor. This varies depending upon what type of exhibit it is, livestock or not. Judging is done according to quality standards; it should not be a matter of personal taste. The 4-H Project is a learning experieru and the 4-H member is expected to learn and know the principles taught in the project and the standards for the products or exhibits which they chose to exhibit. Judges are knowledgeable of and help teach principles of the 4- H project. 4-H uses the Danish system of ribbon awards. In this system, the ribbon placings are defined as follows: Purple - Champion. Best of all exhibits within the project or class. Lavender - Reserve Champion. Second best of all exhibits within the project. Blue. The exhibit meets most standards. The exhibitors can explain what, how, and why the exhibit was done, as well as having a thorough knowledge of the subject. The exhibit is well organized and well done. Red. It meets some standards. The exhibitor can somewhat explain what, how and why the exhibit was done and had a fair knowledge of the general subject. White. It meets fewer standards, and lacks the quality of other exhibits. The exhibitor can not adequately explain the what, how and why of the exhibit. Red/White/Blue - Participation. Quality exhibit in a project not eligible for competition judging. Hopefully, you can take some time off and come to the Big Stone County Fair this week. Have a piece of pie at the foodstand and enjoy the exhibits. And REMEMBER! That there is a whole year of work that goes behind. the scenes of what you see. Regardless of the ribbon, the ultimate goal is to help the 4-Her with smiles and big eyes and small fingers to work and say they could put a project together, they could show an animal in the show ring, they could really show that they care...and to help "adults keeping their smile, their touch and their care" for PEOPLE who are our most important product. 1998 South Dakota application deadlines RESIDENT NONRESIDENT PRONGHORN ANTELOPE Special East River Archery June 5 NA Archery Antelope No Deadline No Deadline Firearms Antelope Aug. 14 Aug. 14 |iven that an probate of the will, dated the application 'probating ' be filed in and the same er given that of Nancy C. rsen, whose St., #21, 319 Oak St., ly, treed decedent devisee or be entitled is personal ' object to the personal personal to fully after 30 of his encumber, estate, unless filed with the 524.3-607) Yen that ALL against said the same or to within four this notice or Is/Diana Sheistad Registrar Diana Sheistad rt Administrator DEER Special Buck May 29 May 29 Archery Antlerless Deer June 5 NA Waubay Refuge Archery Deer June 5 June 5 Custer Park Deer June 12 NA Youth Deer July 3 NA National Wildlife Refuge Deer July 10 July 10 Black Hills Deer July 10 July 10 Muzzleloader Antledess Deer July 17 NA West River Deer July 31 July 31 East River Deer Aug. 28 Oct. 16 Archery Deer No Deadline No Deadline ELK Custer Park Archery Elk Black Hills Archery Elk Custer Firearms Any Elk Custer Park Firearms Antledess Elk Black Hills Firearms Elk TURKEY Black Hills Fall Turkey Fall Prairie Turkey Custer Park Fall Turkey WATERFOWL Nonresident Waterfowl Tundra Swan Special Canada Goose OTHER Archery Paddlefish Custer Park Bighom Sheep Mountain Goat Paddlefish Snagging June 5 NA June 12 NA June 19 NA June 19 NA June 26 NA No Deadline July 3 July 3 NA July 17 July 17 June 12 June 19 June 26 Aug. 14 No Deadline July 3 NA July 17 July 17 NA June 12 NA NA Aug. 14 TEXAN SNOWBIRDS who winter at Casa Del Sol park in Donna, TX, thered last week at Lakeshore RV Park and Fruit Farm north of Ortonville. Nearly 1OO people gathered for the reunion. Texans hold reunion here for 5th straight year Winter residents from Casa del Sol Park in Donna, TX, spent time in our area last week as they held their annu- al summer reunion on July 13-14-15. This is the 5th year they have cho- sen Ortonville for their summer reunion. A total of 21 RVs headquartered at Lakeshore RV Park and Fruit Farm. The rest of the out-of-town guests stayed at the EconoLodge. On Monday evening festivities opened with a pot luck he!d at the rec hall in the campground. Carol and Dennis Dragt were guests of the group as they honored them with a gift of cash for their 40th anniversary: Visiting and card playing followed.the supper. Tuesday morning, 34 Casa golfers, had a tournament at the local golf course. Prizes were given for the highest team score, lowest man's and lady's score, longest drive for man's and lady's and longest man's and lady's putt. Tuesday noon 83 enjoyed a noon lunch at the Senior Citizen Center. They were very impressed with the quick service given them. A few resi- dents were here by noon on Monday and joined the local group then also. The afternoon was spent at the RV Rec Hall with more visiting and card playing. Everyone was delighted with the buffet served to us at Pizza Ranch. After our meal 89 of the group drove over to Milbank for a ride on the Whetstone Valley Express train. Our return trip from Corona, SD, was made all the more memorable with the gorgeous "lightning show" the skies provided for us and the rain with scat- tered hail stones. Wednesday morning, Gayle Boehnke presented "Creative Memories" to the group in the rec hall. The noon meal at Club 7-75 was most enjoyable and it was nice to add some more names to our guest book bringing the total to 103 who attended the festivities. After the meal gifts were given to the group from business places in Texas and locally. The group enjoyed all the festivi- ties so much they voted to return for the 6th time to Ortonville for their 1999 reunion. Guests came from Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota and Canada. Herb Streich and Wendell Paulson were in charge of the golf tournament and Marilyn Streich and Merla Freng were chairpersons in charge of all other arrangements. UM seeks pork producers who use alternative systems The University of Minnesota is looking for a few good pork producers interested in alternative systems for raising hogs. Such systems might involve hoop structures, deep bed- ding, or pasture production. "The University is developing a research and educational program on Alternative Swine Production Systems," says Julie Tranquilla, asso- ciate director of the program. "The intent of this program is to gain a bet- ter understanding of these production systems in Minnesota conditions. Developing educational tools for use by pork producers interested in using these systems is also a goal." As the program develops, Tranquilla is looking for input from interested producers. "If you are using hoop structures, deep-bedded sys- tems, pasture farrowing, or some other pork production system that you consider to require relatively low cap- ital investment, please send us your name and a little information about yourself," she says. "We'd also like to hear from you if you're simply inter- ested in finding out more about these systems. We'd like to know that ques- tions you have and what kind of research projects would interest you. In addition, we're looking for produc- ers to participate in on-farm research focusing on pig production and eco- nomic viability." Tranquilla says those joining the mailing list for Alternative Swine Production Systems will receive information about publications, field days, and conferences concerning these production techniques. To join the list, write down your name, address, and phone number and indicate if you are currently using pas- ture for hogs, deep-bedded housing, hoop structures, or some other system. Also indicate any pork production challenges relating to your system with whichyou would like help. Send the information to Julie Tranquilla, 385 Animal Science/Vet Med, University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN 55108, or call her at (612) 625- 6224.
