Thank you!

We would like to extend a huge CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to everyone that participated in the At-Home Embryology Project. We were a little nervous about what to expect with the new stay at home orders and how we were going to complete programs but with your patience and excitement for this program, we were able to get it done! This was the first of many programs for this summer so thank you for bearing with us as we figured out how to manage going forward. Take a look at some of the successful incubations done by our 4-H’ers!! Also, thank you to Sanderson Farms for the eggs!

Breaking through the egg is exhausting! Time to rest!
