RBC I This year’s Beef Feeder Show was held recently at the Meeker Fairgrounds with 17 4-H members participating from Rio Blanco County.

RBC I 4-H is a community of young people learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. Studies show 4-Hers say they are better decision makers, problem solvers, public speakers and record keepers because of 4-H. They also credit 4-H with helping them develop leadership skills and commitment to their communities. In short, 4-H builds life skills.
Spring has sprung and summer is on its way in Rio Blanco County! Local 4-H members are diligently working on various projects from scrap booking to steer projects, eagerly awaiting the first week of August for the County Fair.
