The Annual 4-H Poultry Show and Sale will be held Sept. 7 at 8:30 a.m. The Show will be held at the 4-H Show-barn in Benton. Thirty-four 4-H members from across Polk County started their poultry project last spring when they received 12 baby chicks provided by the Polk County 4-H Clubs. The 4-H members have been responsible for the care of the chicks and will bring three pullets to the show and compete for Grand Champion 4-H pullet. Other awards will also be given. After the show the 90 pullets will be auctioned off with the money going to the 4-H Clubs. 4-H members in the project have worked hard this past summer raising their pullets for this Saturday’s Show. The pullets which are back sex link pullets are good layers and will produce high quality farm fresh eggs for many years. The Polk County 4-H Office encourages everyone interested in purchasing pullets to come to the show and sale. Sanders and Becky Whaley will serve as judges for this year’s show. The Polk County 4-H Program is open at all youth ages 9 through 19.
