Hulberg honored for participating in federal CRP

It’s not often you get to mark two momentous occasions on one day. Last week, longtime Pope County farmer Art Hulberg was surrounded by family, friends, neighbors and a special guest from Washington, D.C. as he celebrated his 100th birthday and the 30th anniversary of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP)—a program he’s been a part of since its early years.
Val Dolcini, national administrator of the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA), made the trek from his office in Washington, D.C. to personally shake Hulberg’s hand, wish him a happy birthday, and thank him for his participation in the CRP program.

Swift County Fair this week; fundraising for new restroom facilities underway

Swift County’s 118th annual fair gets underway Wednesday and continues through Sunday at the Swift County Fairgrounds in Appleton.
The fair features quality, free entertainment each day, 4-H competitions, a Ranch Rodeo, and a carnival with games and rides. See the full schedule of events at the end of this article.
The campaign for construction of new bathrooms and a shower facility at the Swift County Fair will be launched this week, fair President Jon Panzer said Monday. The current bathrooms at the fair are from around the 1940s.
The fair board is trying to raise $200,000 to replace the aging bathroom facilities and add bathroom and shower facilities at the campgrounds.

PHOTO:  Because of the devastating spread of the avian influenza this spring, there will be no poultry at the 2015 fair.  Jonathan Ilstrup of the Lake Hazel Eager Beavers last year waited to have his chickens judged at the 2014 Swift County Fair.
