Over 55 Kansas 4-H members, siblings, parents, friends and Extension staff attended the 2019 Kansas 4-H Wheat Expo in Kingman on August 8th at the Kingman Expo Center. Thanks to Kingman County Extension for hosting the wheat expo. Participants judged educational classes of wheat, yeast rolls, photography, and a weeds identification quiz.
