All 4-H families, new and returning, are encouraged to log in and register to become an official 4-H member.
As you begin your registration for the year, here are some tips on using 4-H CONNECT: If you already have one, don’t create another one!
If you’ve lost your email and password, contact the county office so we can reset it for you.
Active membership will not be granted until the $25.00 participation fee has been paid on 4-H Connect!
You cannot register or participate in an event until your profile is active.
When you re-register in the year 2022-2023 4-H, please make sure your address, phone number, and email address are up to date.
For any youngsters joining 4-H in 2022-2023 for the first time as a third-year student, we ask that you do not register until September 1st. September 1st is the actual first day of the new 4-H year and what is used to calculate the degree/age. If a second grader enters grade three before September 1, he will be “marked” as a “clover kid,” will not charge an enrollment fee and lock him up as this year’s Clover Child.
If you are having problems trying to enroll in 4-H currently, we recommend that you wait until September 1st. The system has been updated and is currently having problems.
Don’t wait until the last minute to sign up because after October 31 the cost will go up to $30.
National 4-H week will be from October 2-8.
The 4-Hers will have the opportunity to meet with the Brown County Commissioners, Monday, October 3 at 8:30 a.m. to have them sign our announcement and visit about what the Brown County 4-Hers have accomplished. We would like to see as many 4-Hers out there as possible to show our thanks for the support Brown County has given us.
We’ll meet here at the extension office on Monday, October 3 at 8:30 a.m., so if you’re interested in participating, contact the extension office by Monday, September 26. You must be registered at 4-H to participate. We’ll send excused absence letters to your school if you’d like to participate.
It’s time to start preparing for the Brown County Youth Fair and major stock offerings. The most important step in doing this is to check the health of your animals. The lamb/goat health validation will take place October 22 from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. and the pig health validation will take place November 12 from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at Brown County Youth Fair Barns. There will be no compensatory day to validate the province. If you are planning to participate in the Brown County Youth Fair, you need to make sure your animal attends the validation day. If you requested status marks and did not pay for them, please come to the extension office as soon as possible. You must be registered for 4-H before the validation day.
If you are displaying a cow in a large stock fair that has not been previously validated or has changed owners, you will need to validate it. Heifers who only participate in the Brown County Youth Fair do not need to be validated.
Please make sure you have the registration papers on hand when validating. Every cow needs an identity, either a brand or a tattoo. Please make sure tattoos/brandings are ready and legible before validation.
