See below for information about the HCJLC steer tagging November 21. This is an activity of the HCJLC (subcommittee of the Fair Board) and does not promise a fair or in-person 4-H shows, but if you don't get a steer and get it tagged, you won't be able to show it at a Huntingdon County Fair or 4-H/FFA show in 2020-2021...

Good luck Katerina as you represent Huntingdon County this week!

As pageant week continues Huntingdon County Dairy Promotion will do our best to introduce our 650 new followers in 2020 to pageant week. We start today with an introduction to Day #1 of the process.

The pageant is coordinated by Pennsylvania Dairy Princess and Promotion services and is being held in Altoona this year. Many social distancing protocols are in place which has altered the location as well as the number of attendees which are permitted to be present with the princesses throughout the week and on Saturday.

Today, Katerina was chauffeured to the convention center by our coordinator, Becky Couch. From there she promptly participated in the following events which are evaluated by a panel of judges.

* Personal Interview
* 30 second Radio Spot
* 3-5 minute Presentation
* Interview with Pageant Emcee
* Scrapbook
* Poster Display

This long day of competition has come to a close. Check back tomorrow to find out what our princess has in store for her. In the meantime, do what Katerina would do and get your three serving of dairy today!

Below is a photo of Katerina as she prepared to conquer the days activities.

Have you heard about Spotted Lanternflies? Do you know what a huge risk they pose to PA agriculture as they spread across our state? A group of teens from Eastern PA has developed a presentation about this pest for our 4-H Clubs. Contact Christine to schedule your next virtual club meeting, and let her know if you’d like to have this educational presentation!!

First, these are not props they are live adult Spotted Lanternflies that I observed today in the Altoona, PA area. The adults are very mobile right now and may be hitchhiking across the state on your vehicles or equipment. The two I observed today were on vegetation in an area where Tree of Heaven are flourishing. All property owners in our region should familiarize themselves with this pest and take steps to curtail its population when observed. Please see this Penn State Extension Website for additional information on this exotic pest: https://extension.psu.edu/spotted-lanternfly
