FOND DU LAC

Fond du Lac County 4-Hers celebrated the 100th birthday of 4-H with a variety of activities around the fair last week including reciting the 4-h pledge before every judging event, hosting a 4-h Family Feud game that focused on trivia about the history of 4-H, and displays by clubs and the 4-H centennial committee.

The Family Feud, 4-H Style, featured questions to competing teams, made up of 4-H clubs in the county. Fond du Lac County includes 700 4-Hers and hundreds of volunteers that keep the program going.

Rae Nell Halbur, a volunteer with the Fond du lac County 4-H, served as MC for the 4-H Centennial celebration 4-H version of Family Feud.

Competing teams were from various clubs in the county answered trivia questions as a means of letting the audience know more about 4-H. They revealed things like: photography is the number one project in Fond du lac County 4-H; In the 1940's farm safety was the state 4-H special emphasis; In 1929 the first three 4-H clubs were formally established in Fond du lac County; 4-Hers around the country grew victory gardens during the World War II years.

The fair also included the second annual Agromatic Ag Birthing Center, back by popular demand following a very successful year in 2013.

This popular attraction opened each day of the fair and featured live cattle births as well as baby chicks, piglets, ducklings, lambs and baby goats (kids). The area also highlighted the sheep, goat and equine births.

As another part of its continuing education effort to bring education, entertainment and affordable family fun to the community, the Fond du Lac County Fair again featured an Ag Venture Center which included educational exhibits on the agriculture industry in Wisconsin. Subjects featured in the Ag Venture Center included dairy cattle, goats, swine, honey, maple syrup, cranberries, wheat, apples and cherries among other commodities from Wisconsin's agriculture industry.
