Bell County 4-H - Texas A&M AgriLife Extension


Hello 4H Peeps! Does anyone need a meat pen (5 rabbits) for upcoming Travis County Youth Show?

I have a friend who has some very nice rabbits!

Validation this Saturday!
Tomorrow is sale day. Come out and get a great pig. Go to my personal page for the info.
Where can I get some more information on Clover kids?
I sent an email on August 13th and I haven't heard a response, I also went on and registered myself as a volunteer and my son and I'm pretty sure I did it backwards and I don't know how to fix it it won't allow me to edit it.
I found a rabbit in West Temple, and I think it might be someone’s 4-H rabbit because it has a tattoo. Is anyone missing a brown Mini Rex?
Can someone tell me when I can bring my kids in for a meet? They want to do 4H so I want to bring them in to see if they like it, I know they are to late to show an animal but would still like to bring them
