Extension Homemakers Clubs Active in Logan County

The Logan County Extension Homemaker clubs have a mission to build strong families and communities through continuing education, leadership development, and community service.

Extension Homemaker clubs are affiliated with University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service. Clubs meet monthly in communities throughout the county and state. At the meetings, members have educational programs based on the latest information on subjects such as nutrition, financial management, family and child development, health, the environment, and much more.

In addition to monthly club meetings, members organize and conduct special projects for children, senior citizens, and others in the community.

Membership in these clubs is available to anyone regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, marital or veteran status, or any other legally protected status. Persons with disabilities who require alternative means for communication of program information (large print, audiotapes, etc.) should notify the county Extension office (or other appropriate office) as soon as possible prior to the meeting.

Logan County 4-H Clubs

Arkansas State 4-H O-Rama

Did you know that Arkansas 4-H'ers can launch rockets, sew their own clothes, grow their own food, repair small engines, learn about computers, cook their own food, create documentary films, travel to other states and countries, learn about agricultural and environmental sciences, work with either small or large animals, and lots more?

In addition to exploring over 80 different projects, members learn leadership skills and do community service projects to help others. 4-H'ers do more than talk about the future - you'll see them creating their future. 4-H'ers find that learning can be fun. They work with others on projects in their community or project clubs. 4-H members can go to camp, show their work at fairs, travel, attend meetings and events at the University of Arkansas with other young people, and more.

Membership in 4-H and their program benefits are available to all youth ages 5-19 regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability or any other legally protected status.  Here is a  list of 4-H clubs in Logan County with meeting times and locations:

Beef and Forage Production

With cattle inventories of approximately 55,000 head, Logan County ranks as one of the largest beef cattle producing counties in the state.  When producing beef cattle, a main concern is forage production.  Being able to produce high-quality forage at the lowest possible price is vital for profitability in the beef cattle industry.  The Logan County Cooperative Extension Office has many services aimed at helping producers achieve this goal.  Soil samples are crucial in determining fertilizer needs.  Pasture evaluations can help determine weed problems and grazing capacities.  The county hay shows, which are held in conjunction with the Logan County fairs, are an opportunity to receive low-cost analyses for the forage you produce, as well as a chance to win prizes and gain recognition.  Feel free to contact the county Extension office with questions about any of these services.
