Raising Poultry for Family & Markets

The following 4-H Youth Development and Agriculture and Natural Resources article printed in the 2018 Winter edition of the Oldham County Extension Newsletter and the 2018 Oldham County Extension Report to the People.

Raising Poultry for Family and Markets

In Oldham County, the sourcing and purchasing of local foods is a continuing trend. This has also spurred a growing number of people to seek information about raising their own food, and keeping poultry flocks is a very popular enterprise. Oldham County poultry and egg sales have continued to increase over the last two decades, according to the U.S. Census of Agriculture.

To meet the growing need for poultry production knowledge, the Oldham County Agriculture and 4-H Agents and the Shelby County Horticulture Assistant planned a two-part ‘Chickens 101’ program. The program was geared to both adults and youth interested in egg and meat chicken production.

This March 2018 program featured both classroom presentations and live poultry demonstrations. Sixty-six adults and youth attended one or both sessions of Chickens 101. Participants learned about breed selection, chick care, housing, predator control, flock health, and nutrition.

A post evaluation revealed that:

  • 100% of respondents learned new information relevant to raising chickens
  • 100% of respondents reported they would use information learned to raise chickens to produce eggs for their families
  • 36% reported that new knowledge would help them raise meat chickens for their families
  • 45% reported they will sell eggs to others
  • 23% reported they will sell processed/finished meat chickens to others

Based on evaluation response, classes on selling eggs and meat chickens – plus other production-oriented topics – are in demand and needed. The Oldham County Extension Service plans to host future poultry programs to provide continuing education to both youth and adults.

The success of the Chickens 101 series also led to the establishment of the Oldham County 4-H Poultry Club in the fall of 2018.

Oldham County Extension Leader of the Year

The following article printed in the 2018 Winter edition of the Oldham County Extension Newsletter and the 2018 Oldham County Extension Report to the People.

extension leader of the year

Extension Leader of the Year

Karen Horton is our Extension Leader of the Year! A Kentucky 4-H alumni herself, she has volunteered with Oldham County 4-H since 2012.

For five years, Karen led the Oldham County 4-H Cloverbuds Club which is geared towards youth ages six through eight. Her caring nature and fun attitude helped transform a loosely thrown-together program into a well-organized learning experience for all involved. Graduated Cloverbuds return as volunteers, sharing their hands-on skills and serving as role models for current members. Parents who used to simply drop off their children for club meetings now stay to learn and help. This special dynamic builds 4-H families.

Karen continues to support Oldham County’s youth in a variety of ways, including volunteering at 4-H summer camp, 4-H Reality Store, and 4-H Communications. She is also starting a new 4-H Photography Club in 2019.

Setting 4-H Camp Records

Having broken the county’s attendance record in 2017, Oldham County 4-H’s dream to have its own camp week became a reality in 2018.

The Oldham County 4-H Council raised over $12,510 to help support camp expenses, roughly twice the amount of donations received in 2017.

The 319 attendees included nine participants who have grown up in the program, experiencing life as a camper, teen leader, and now as an adult leader. In addition, the state employed three Oldham County 4-H alumni in 2018 as paid camp interns.
