It was a beautiful day with a great turn out for the sheep workshop. 4-Hers learned about getting their lamb ready for a show, common health concerns, showmanship, equipment and more!

We can’t wait to see all these 4-Hers showing their lambs at the 125th Carroll County 4-H & FFA Fair this summer!!

It's #NewFoodFriday! Radishes are an early spring vegetable that is often overlooked. Try making this Rockin’ Radish Salad with your kids. How do the radishes taste? Zingy? Spicy? Crispy?
