NH 4-H Horse Judging and Hippology Contests
(All day)

The NH 4-H Horse Judging and Hippology Contests are two separate contests. The Horse Judging contest allows members to demonstrate their ability to judge conformation and performance classes of horses and later present oral reasons to explain their placings (reasons division only).


The Hippology Contest is a comprehensive contest of equine knowlege involving a written test, practical exam, problem solving, equipment identification, and horse judging. Juniors (ages 12-13 participate as individuals) and seniors (ages 14-18) participate in county teams (those without a county team will be placed with members from other counties).

 

Junior Hippology contestants may, if desired, participate in the non-reasons judging contest. Seniors must chose either horse judging or hippology.

 

Qualified seniors placing in the top 8 in both contests may be chosen to represent NH at the NE Regional 4-H Horse contest and the Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup.


There will also be a Novice Hippology event for members ages 8-11 sponsored by Rockingham County Horse Leaders

Give Bees a Home -Part 1
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

Native Pollinators and Their Nesting Habitats

NH is home to several hundred species of native bees. These bees have a big job - they're responsible for pollination and reproduction of thousands of plant species in our fields, forests, wetlands, gardens, and farms. Amy Papineau, UNH Cooperative Extension Field Specialist, will discuss the roles and importance of native bees in NH's natural ecosystems and agriculture. Amy will discuss what you can do to support native bees by providing habitat and nesting sites on your property. Join us for a follow-up workshop on April 25 where we will build bee nesting boxes and a bee hotel at the Boscawen Community Gardens.

Apple Tree Grafting & Pruning Workshop
(10:00 AM - 12:00 PM)

UNH Cooperative Extension Specialists Bill Lord, Amy Papineau, and Jeremy Delisle will lead this hands-on apple grafting and pruning workshop. Learn how to graft new apple varieties onto old trees and try your hand at grafting onto an apple rootstock (and take your new grafted tree home!). We’ll also demonstrate and discuss the how, when, and why of pruning for tree health and productivity.


IMPORTANT: Watch this video NOW! extension.unh.edu/grafting
If you plan to do grafting at home or on your farm this spring, you need to collect your scion wood ahead of time – in March when the trees are dormant. In this video, Bill Lord will teach you how to collect and store your scion wood in preparation for grafting in April.


Please come dressed for the weather, as this event will be held outside.

Soil Matters 2015 New Hampshire Soil Conference
(08:30 AM - 12:30 PM)

The National Cooperative Soil Survey Program has undergone significant changes in NH and across the country. Soil resource information is now readily available on-line for all of the privately owned land in NH and mapping in the White Mountain National Forest is underway. The day-to-day work of local NRCS Soil Staff has shifted to updating soils data, soil interpretations and working with local agency staff, partners and landowners with an emphasis on technical assistance to support delivery of Farm Bill Conservation Programs. This conference and many of our future activities will focus on working to improve recognition of the value and use of soils information in land use decision making. Our staff numbers are declining along with the federal budget, which highlights the need to set priorities and strengthen partnerships to meet the most important needs of our customers.

This conference is a free opportunity for you to hear about soil activities from NRCS and other NH agencies and organizations and to provide input on future directions and approaches.

 

Space is limited, please RSVP to cyndy.camp@nh.usda.gov by April 7, 2015.

 

Please feel free to bring your lunch and visit with other conference attendees after the conference ends. NRCS staff will be available from 1:00 to 2:00 to answer questions and demonstrate how to access soils maps and data.
