Farm Forum



The Dakota Sharpshooters met May 6 at the Northern Electric Building.

Colin Sprinkel led the American Pledge and Grace Malsam led the 4-H Pledge. Our club members will be participating in the Dairy Promotion in June. May 23rd will be the final enrollment for all 4-H members. They will need to enroll online what projects that they will be in. At this meeting Megan Malsam and Grace Malsam gave a talk. Megan’s talk was about a horse’s digestive system. Grace’s talk was about the top 18 horse breeds in the United States. The club was discussing how they could raise some money for the new 4-H Exhibit building in Huron. If any club members come up with a good fundraiser idea, they should contact one of the leaders with their ideas.

The next meeting will be June 3, 7:00, at the Sharp’s Dairy Farm.
