4-H'ers Gather for Annual Achievement Days

Posted: Updated:

Members of 4-H are excited to show off their hard work at the annual Burleigh County 4-H Achievement Days.

4-H'ers, young and old, take part in several events including a livestock show.

Brita Feland and her family have been a part of 4-H for many years.

Together, they raise four goats.

A lot goes into preparing these animals for a show.

"We have to train them and make sure like they get set up and everything and feed them the right show feed and everything and hopefully they turn out good," says Brita Feland, 4-H'er.

Those who work with the organization are passionate about the knowledge and life skills youth gain by being a part of 4-H.

"It's always about the kids. And we wouldn't come back here day after day after day if we didn't see growth in children and see them learning and see them promoting agriculture in their communities. That's what it's all about," says Cathy Palczewski, Extension Agent, Burleigh County.

The 4-H Achievement Days runs through July 13.

For additional information on the events, contact the Burleigh County Extension office at 701-221-6865.
