                Announcements from the Extension Office this week:

                We will have a small field day to sweep for Leafy Spurge Flea Beetles on Tuesday, July 2nd.  Please call the Extension Office at 797-3312 to let us know you will be attending.  We will meet at the Courthouse at 1 pm on Tuesday and drive out to the site.  What you sweep, is what you go home with.  Please bring a cooler and ice packs to transport your beetles home.  Nets will be provided for sweeping.

                Producers that have sprayed their noxious weeds (including Leafy Spurge) and plan to submit chemical cost for reimbursement to the county, must do so by July 9th.   Please visit with the Extension Office on filling out the forms for reimbursements.  This pertains to chemical purchases and applications made prior to July 1, 2018.

                The 4-H Horse Show was postponed from last week due to wet conditions of the arena to this Monday, July 2nd.  You are invited to watch the show at the horse arena on the Griggs County Fairgrounds.  The show will begin at 9 am.  Hope to see you in the bleachers!
