Rock County 4-H Club

Rock County, Wisconsin

The Rock County 4-H Club began in 1917 when the county hired it's first "county agent" - L. A.
MARKHAM - to head an agricultural education program for the rural youth. Four county-wide groups were formed (corn, dairy calf, sheep and and baby beef) with the assistance of the YMCA and Rock County Farm Bureau. Roy T. GLASSCO became the county agent in 1919.
District clubs were organized in Clinton, Evansville, Milton and Newark in 1927. By this time, the
Rock County 4-H clubs boasted a membership of more than 700 boys and girls.
For more information regarding the Rock County 4-H Club, read The Janesville Gazette's
August 14, 1985, article "Craig is father of 4-H fair here."
