County steer and commercial heifer validation will take place Saturday, Sept. 20 from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Goliad County Fair Barn. 

Those who wish to show a steer at the 2015 County Show must make this validation or have previously validated in June at the major show validation.  Members may also validate their commercial heifer project this day, however, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with your veterinarian and inform this office so the agent or ag teacher can be on hand to place a county show tag in your project’s ear. 

You can schedule your appointment as soon as you read this article.  All validations must take place before the Sept. 20 deadline.

Goliad 4-H Hot Shots

The Goliad 4-H Hot Shots shotgun project will hold its first meeting Saturday, Sept. 6 at the Victoria Skeet and Trap Club. 

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. and shooting will begin thereafter. 

If you have any questions, contact Amanda Sparks at 361-935-7391 or by email at

School bag project

Goliad County 4-H members interested in clothing and textiles, community service or leadership projects are invited to help construct and fill backpacks that will be donated to kids around the world in third-world countries or have been affected by natural disasters. 

Our goal this year is to make and fill 20 bags.  Take advantage of the good deals this time of year to donate the following items: 70-sheet spiral notebooks, 30-centimeter ruler, pencil sharpener, safety scissor, 2 1/2 inch eraser (not pencil toppers), ballpoint pens (no gel ink), 16 or 24 crayons box, and rubber bands.

Donations can be brought to the Goliad County Extension Office.  Bag construction will be held in October or November. 

Contact Bethany Schoener at 550-6129 for more details.
