Commodity Carnival

The Commodity Carnival was set up in the 4-H booth building Friday afternoon. Laura Rohlf, 4-H Extension educator for Henry County, explained the booth is intended to promote people learning about what’s involved in raising an animal, including investment, health and nutrition, production and resources and energy. Participants get an egg which represents a steer and they put feed into it, see costs that go into it and have a weigh-in, as well as play game where different risk factors can occur which will affect the finished rate for the “animal.” The carnival will be set up again Sunday from 1-3 p.m. and Tuesday from 4-6 p.m.
