This video is intended as a fun take on how to dress properly when handling pesticides. Please note that the characters depicted are preparing for a non-specific pesticide application in order to demonstrate the minimum protective clothing and equipment that should be worn. In real life, you should read the label of the specific product you intend to use. The label will tell you exactly what you should wear when handling that product. At a minimum, when you handle pesticides you should wear socks, closed-toe shoes, long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, and chemical-resistant gloves.

4-H youth show their dairy and pygmy goats. This year, the 4-H/FFA Dairy Cattle Show is combined with the Dairy/Pygmy Goat. In the showmanship classes, 4-H’ers are judged on their ability to handle and present their animal. Showmen are divided into classes based on age. In breed classes, the animals are evaluated on their conformation (skeletal and muscular structures) desirable for their breed. Four major categories when judging dairy cattle include frame score, dairy breed strength, feet and legs, and soundness of the udder.  The Lancaster County Super Fair is brought to you by Lancaster County Agricultural Society, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that promotes agriculture, youth and community.

In obedience, exhibitors are judged on how well their dog responds to commands. Classes range from beginning level (in which dogs must be shown on leash) up to advanced levels (in which dogs are shown without a leash). There are also team obedience classes. In showmanship, youth are judged on their dog handling abilities. 4-H'ers are divided into classes based on age, plus a class for handlers and dogs who have previously won a purple in senior showmanship.  The Lancaster County Super Fair is brought to you by Lancaster County Agricultural Society, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that promotes agriculture, youth and community.
