International Night Results
The 2018 Saline County 4-H International Night was held at the Harrisburg First Church of God on April 30, 2018. A large crowd attended International Night to see our talented 4-H youth give presentations on their chosen countries, to view the displays, and to sample the fun international foods. The Saline County 4-H Federation sponsors the prizes for this annual event.
The Clover Explorers 4-H club, led by Cindy Jean, placed first and received a blue ribbon and a State Fair Ribbon, and a certificate for Best Table Display for their presentation of Israel. A travel guide interviewed potential guides who informed the audience about the country of Israel.

Breeding and Market Livestock Registration Forms
The Saline County 4-H Livestock Registration Forms, for members recording livestock for exhibition, are due in to the Extension Office by May 15, 2018. Members must fill out a Livestock Registration form for market animals as well as for breeding animals, including cattle, dairy, swine, sheep, goats (meat and dairy), and rabbits. The form has a place to record the following information: Species, Breed and Registration Number if animal is a registered purebred, Birth Date of Animal, Sex of Animal, and Tattoo or Tag Number.
Members must declare a breed on the form to show in purebred classes and are asked to fill out a separate form for Breeding Livestock and for Market Livestock. This includes any market animals already recorded at the Beef, Swine, Sheep and/or Meat Goat Weigh-ins.
There is a place on the form for members to declare an address where their animal(s) will be housed. A copy of the Livestock Registration form was included in the April 4-H Newsletter. Additional copies are available at the Extension office.
