Wortman Family Farm donating 4-H hog
VW independent/submitted information
Wortman Family Farm is donating one healthy, high quality market hog to one Van Wert County Junior Fair member.
The selected recipient will be required to raise the market hog and exhibit it at the Van Wert County Fair. Wortman Family Farm representatives will be available for help and guidance throughout the summer, but not financially responsible for the care of the animal. This program is designed to let interested youths learn and grow through raising a quality market livestock project.
Those interested should fill out an application and turn it in to the Ohio State University Extension-Van Wert County Office no later than Friday, April 8.
