Cuyahoga Farm Bureau donates to local 4-H

The Cuyahoga County Farm Bureau board of trustees recently approved a donation of $1400 to the Cuyahoga 4-H Market Auction Committee to help with advertising and promotional expenses for the 2017 market auction to be held at the county fair in August.

“Today’s 4-H youth may be the next farmer raising your food and fiber and the future of agriculture. It is important that we support their efforts,” said County Farm Bureau President Kim Rassi-Gollin.

The 4-H Market Auction will be held at the county fair Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017.

Rassi-Gollin also indicated that the county Farm Bureau presents each 4-H participant with an animal in the market auction with a monetary reward for his or her individual efforts raising their animal.
