Junior Livestock Exhibitor Seminar
Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 5:00 pm is our Junior Livestock Educational Seminar presented by the Show Feed Specialists at Farmers Warehouse Co. The seminar will feature hands on swine, sheep and cattle selection, nutrition, fitting, showmanship and project management. It will be a great opportunity to get all your questions answered and win free bags of feed, supplements and more! If you are planning on showing an animal this year for FFA or 4-H you won’t want to miss this.
On Saturday, February 15, 2020 we will have a “fencing event” put on by our friends at Bekaert Fencing. They will be demonstrating the installation of non-climb, field fence, smooth and barbed wire fencing. We will have more details (time etc.) as the events get closer. If you have some fencing projects in the near future you won’t want to miss this!
In conjunction with “chick season, we will be hosting a “Chick Chat” on March 5, 2020 from 5:00pm—8:00pm. Twine Lockhart with Nutrena Feed will be here for a free interactive poultry seminar and to answer all you poultry questions.
Did you know....
January was named after the Roman god Janus. Janus is also the Roman word for door. The god Janus had two faces which allowed him to look forwards into the coming year and backwards into the past year.
The original Roman calendar only had 10 months with the start of the new year beginning in March. January and February were added later.
February was added to the Roman calendar in 713 BC. The length of the month changed over time and, at one time, it had as few as 23 days. When Julius Caesar remade the Roman calendar, the month was assigned 28 days during normal years and 29 days during leap years which occurred every four years.
