4-H

  • Thank you Volunteers!
    April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month.  We would like to say thank you to all the volunteers who make Wright County 4-H possible.  Volunteers put in countless hours in a variety of roles throughout our county.  Without you, many events & activities would not be possible.  Thank you for your dedication to the Wright County 4-H program. 
  • Sign up for the Wright-Hennepin Fundraiser
    Wright County 4-H has been invited to host the Wright-Hennepin shareholders’ annual dinner.  This is a great fundraiser for our 4-H Exchange and Federation, and we need your help!  Remember: All 4-H’ers involved in State Fair, Citizenship Washington Focus, or Exchange especially should participate in this fundraiser. 
  • Summer Kick-Off Night
    Open house to highlight some of our upcoming summer programs - Science Camp, Day Camps, Residence Camp, Shooting Sports Training, Horse Judging and Clinics, Engineering Design Challenge and more!  There will be hands-on activities and lots of opportunities to ask questions.  New 4-H Families are invited to attend the New 4-H Family Night at 6:30pm
  • LQA&E Training
    All youth participating as a state fair livestock exhibitor in beef, dairy, sheep, swine, poultry, rabbit, meat and dairy goat and lama must have completed a Livestock Quality Assurance and Ethics workshop. Certification is good for three fair seasons. The level of training required is determined by the grade of the youth at the time the training takes place. An email will be sent to all youth signed up for livestock that are due to take the training soon. 
  • Animal ID’s Due May 15
    All of the information you will need for ID’ing your animal project for this year can be found in the information letter below.  If you have any questions about animal ID’s, please don’t hesitate to contact the Extension office for help!

  • MN Land Rental Rates
    This publication provides a historical perspective on rental rates paid by a group of Minnesota farmers and trends in those rental rates over the past five years. This information is meant as a guide and starting point. The information and data is not meant to establish, determine, set, fix, or even hint at what actual rents should be. It is simply a reporting of historical land rental rates in Minnesota.
  • FINBIN Report on MN Farm Finances
    The 2,306 Minnesota farms included in the FINBIN database represent a broad cross-section of Minnesota production agriculture. While there is no “typical” Minnesota farm, these farms include a large enough sample to provide a good barometer of commercial farming in Minnesota. FINBIN data is provided by farms that participate in Minnesota State Farm Business Management Education programs and the Southwestern Minnesota Farm Business Management Association. These farms represent about 3 percent of the farms in the state and 14% of commercial farms with sales of over $250,000.
