Schley 4-H Club learns importance of agriculture
Schley County 4-H Club members have learned how important agriculture is to Schley County and to Georgia’s economy.
As a part of learning about healthy lifestyles, the 4-H’ers were able to take turns making butter and testing what they had made.
Students learned the difference in the makeup of beef and dairy cattle and what they are used for.
All commodities were discussed from blueberries to watermelons and how they are grown and affect us on a daily basis.
Schley County 4-H salutes our local farmers and agribusiness.
For more information about 4-H contact Brenda Welch at 229-937-1108 or visit the court house downtown Ellaville.
