YOUTH THRIVE SURVEY
This fall, Wisconsin 4-H will be encouraging members (ages 13-18) to complete a survey about their 4-H experience. The survey will help
Wisconsin 4-H to learn about the quality of our programs. The survey will be sent to all Wisconsin 4-H members by e-mail in the first week of November. Youth who complete the survey will be entered into a raffle to win a $25 gift card!
For more information on the 4-H Thriving Model, visit https://4h.extension.wisc.edu/…/4-h…/4-h-thriving-model/
Please keep an eye out for messages and more information about this important survey.
FREE MEAT ANIMAL PROJECT BOX AVAILABLE!
Do you want to learn more about cooking with meat from one of the following market animal projects: beef, swine, sheep, goat, poultry, or rabbit?
By participating in this distance learning project, youth will learn the following:
• The safe way to cook, store, freeze and thaw meat of the different project species.
• How to find the correct internal temperature of the cuts of meat.
• Try different recipes, helping them learn different ways to flavor and cook meat.
We encourage youth to learn to cook with the animal species they may be raising, but also to try others to learn some differences and other skills. There will be a Zoom meeting hosted by Bernie O’Rourke, Extension Livestock Specialist, to lead youth through a cooking lesson, using the information in the Cooking with Meat box.
Registration closes on December 15th.
You can go to https://uwmadison.co1.qualtrics.com/…/SV_6EhBdFnA5Os81Ey to register.
Included in the box:
• meat probe
• cutting board
• bamboo skewers
• internal temp magnet
• cooking with meat book
• Access to virtual cooking session in Jan or Feb 2024
Thank you to Conteva AgriScience and the WI 4-H Foundation for helping to provide funds for this opportunity for youth. Also, a special thank you to the WI Beef Council and the WI Pork Association for assisting with dissemination of information for the purpose of this project box.
