4-H in Rosebud & Treasure Counties

Dating back to 1912, the beginnings of the 4-H organization took form as a way to educate rural families on the current and new technologies in both agricultural practices as well as homemaker skills.  The novel concept was based on the premise of teaching youth who would then in turn assimilate these practices into the home and family farms and ranches.

What started as a basic method of educating youth on the important agricultural and home improvements of the time has now, over 100 years later, evolved into one of the premier youth development programs all over the world. Of course the program still offers the traditional livestock projects, but through 4-H youth can learn more about such topics like robotics, theatre arts, and shooting sports. 

4-H has strong roots in Rosebud and Treasure Counties. The current program includes over 150 youth members and adult volunteers who participate in one of the seven active community clubs found within the two counties.  Livestock projects remain the most active, along with shooting sports.  

The Rosebud-Treasure County Fair continues to be one of the most important events of the 4-H year as it provides the members with the opportunity to showcase their projects, compete, and probably most importantly, get together and have fun.
