San Antonio Stock Show School Tour Guides!

The School Tours program gives young students and their teachers the opportunity to learn about past and present methods of agriculture. School Tours are offered to students in Kindergarten through third grade attending public, private and home schools. High School aged students of 4-H, FFA and FCCLA organizations from South Texas are invited each year to serve as Tour Guides for this committee. Tour Guides assist in educating the students about agriculture and its valued importance, while sharpening their leadership and responsibility skills. Each tour lasts 2 to 2-1/2 hours.

During the tour, students will visit a number of areas where they can view exhibits and demonstrations. Animal Adventures and the Horse Center are just a couple of the areas students will visit to learn more about agriculture through interactive hands-on displays and view live farm animals that include cattle, swine, sheep, goats, poultry and horses. The tours also visit the Family Fair area of the grounds. This area has additional exhibits, live entertainment and petting zoos. Some of these school children think their milk only comes from the store – what an impact you can have on them!

The dates we have available to guide tours this year are:
-         - Monday, February 13, 2017
-        - Tuesday, February 14, 2017
-        - Wednesday, February 15, 2017
-        - Thursday, February 16, 2017
-        - Friday, February 17, 2017
-        - Monday, February 20, 2017
-        - Tuesday, February 21, 2017
-        - Wednesday, February 22, 2017
-       NO TOURS Feb 23-24

This is a FIRM COMMITMENT on your part – you are expected to be at the stock show at 7:30 in the morning and won’t be done until 3 p.m. that day. You may lead more than one tour that day and you generally work with another tour guide.

If you are interested in guiding school tours through the San Antonio Livestock Show, please contact Janet at jlsweet@ag.tamu.edu to sign up. Be sure to specify the exact date you want to guide tours. (Feb. 20 is a school holiday, if that helps you make up your mind!)


Deadline to sign up is November 11. School tours will be held on the dates established regardless of the weather, so dress appropriately! Remember, you are representing Comal County 4-H!

Swine Tags Due September 26th!

REMINDER: Today's the deadline!

Swine Validation Tags are $12 each and must be purchased by Monday, September 26th.

To those who are new to showing hogs, there is a state-wide validation process, which begins with you ordering a tag for each of the hogs you might show for the 2016-2017 show season. You order the tags now and pay for them, then take your hogs to validation in November to have them tagged. A parent MUST go to validation or have signed a waiver before validation. Youth do not have to attend validation with their parent(s).

Come to the Extension office (325 Resource Drive, behind the Rural Recycling Center on Hwy 46W) Monday through Friday, 8-12 and 1-5, to purchase your tags. We must have EXACT CHANGE or a check made payable to Comal 4-H Council for your purchase. (We don't have petty cash, so we are unable to give you change.)

Validating your hogs or purchasing validation tags does NOT enter you in any stock shows! All stock show entries will be taken the week of November 7-10, with Fort Worth entries due November 1st.

REMEMBER: ALL 4-H'ers must be ACTIVE on 4-H Connect (www.4honline.com) by November 1st in order to show an animal! Enrollment will be checked!

Broiler Orders for ALL SHOWS!

New rule for this year for broilers purchased for MAJOR LIVESTOCK SHOWS (San Antonio, Houston/Austin, State Fair) - Families with multiple exhibitors in the same household will now be allowed to share an order of broilers when selecting birds to bring to the major livestock shows. If you need clarification of this rule, click here.


Broiler Orders: Due October 1, 2016 - There will be one order for the Houston and Austin stock shows, and one order for the San Antonio and County birds. COUNTY BIRDS must still be ordered by exhibitor (we encourage exhibitors to order 50 birds each for county, and 75 birds each, if going to San Antonio, as well). Cost is $1.25 per chick. Payment in full must accompany order. Pickup date will be sometime mid-January, 2017. 

Bring exact change or checks made payable to Comal 4-H Council to pay for your chicks.

Please remember that ORDERING BIRDS does NOT enter you in any livestock shows. Livestock show entries are usually taken in early November. Watch your email, the newsletter and the blog for more info!

Gruene Kountry's first meeting of the year!

Gruene Kountry 4-H Club held their first meeting of the year on Sunday, September 11th at Mission Valley Community Center. There were 62 people in attendance: 36 members, 25 adults, and 1 guest.  It was great to see everyone again!
This year our theme will be “Field to Freezer” and we will learn about food production, processing, inspection, storage, etc.  Our guest speaker this month was Stacy Haugen, a Sanitarian II with the Texas Department of State Health Services.  Mrs. Haugen gave an overview of her job and how she goes into food processing facilities and completes safety inspections. The members of the club were very intrigued by her presentation and asked many questions. 
For our recreation, Sarah Syamken led us in playing the game Green Glass Door.   We then enjoyed refreshments and played on the grounds.
The adults met with Mrs. Kreusler and covered the new 4-H Eligibility Policy and the Vet Feed Directive, along with our plans for the year.
Our next meeting will be our One Day 4-H project on Sunday, October 9th, at the SOS Food Bank.  Going along with our theme, we will donate food items and work sorting food.  We will also learn about the Food Bank with a presentation by a volunteer.

ONE DAY 4-H - October 8, 2016

Eight years ago the Texas 4-H Youth Development Program created a day of service for 4-H members across Texas. One Day 4-H has reached hundreds of thousands of Texas residents as well as involved more than 125,000 4-H youth and volunteers in service projects during those years.  Countless funds and resources have been raised and donated - enriching the lives of many Texans and instilling community pride and citizenship into the 4-H members. 

T-SHIRTS
The 2016 One Day 4-H event will officially take place on Saturday, October 8th.  Once again, the event is being sponsored state-wide by TransCanada.  Their sponsorship goes to help provide t-shirts for a minimum cost to the participants.  This year the t-shirts feature a new logo and can be purchased through the Texas A&M AgriLife Bookstore (http://www.agrilifebookstore.org – in search box type “One Day”).  All shirts are $6.00 per shirt and shipping is free!   In order to have all the t-shirts in the hands of the 4-H members/adults/groups by Saturday, October 1st when some projects will be occurring we have set the deadline for t-shirt orders as September 9th. This date allows for all orders to be processed, t-shirts printed and mailed.  Please help us in promoting the t-shirts and encouraging early ordering. Adult sizes available ONLY.

RESOURCES
A resource tool is available for those 4-H clubs/groups needing guidance and assistance in organizing and planning a community service project.  The resource is available on the One Day 4-H website at:  http://texas4-h.tamu.edu/events/oneday/.  

SIGN UP PROJECTS
The Texas 4-H Program does ask that each county/club please register their One Day 4-H project(s) so we can provide information statewide to media outlets as well as be able to identify unique and creative projects that maybe featured projects for interpretation. The link to the sign up site can be found at:  http://texas4-h.tamu.edu/events/oneday/

PHOTOS
As your county/clubs groups start to plan please have them take some great candid and action shots of their project.  These photos are priceless interpretation pieces for 4-H and Extension to highlight the impact that our 4-H youth and volunteers are engaged in.
Photos can be uploaded through the reporting site located on the One Day 4-H website.

Thanks again for helping Texas 4-H Promote this excellent service opportunity for our youth and program to give back and make a difference in one day.
