December 8, 2023 - 4:22pm --

It is now time to order market turkeys for the 2024 Putnam County Fair. All turkey orders must be received by 4:30 pm on January 23 in order to meet the deadline with Cooper Farms Hatchery. Cooper Farms have been a wonderful supporter of the Putnam County 4-H and FFA programs and once again offering up to five free poults for each youth taking a market turkey project. Youth may order more than five poults but must pay for each poult after five. The prices are as follows: $3.50 per extra hen, $3.88 per extra straight run, and $4.25 per extra tom. Please remember that this offer is only good for youth in 4-H and FFA who will be completing the market turkey project in 2024. The date for turkey pickup is Thursday, February 29, from noon to 4:30 pm at the Extension Office. If you ordered additional poults your payment is due when you pick up your poults. You need to submit your order online by clicking here. If you have any questions, please contact or you may call the Extension Office at (419)-523-6294.

We look forward to seeing all your hard work at the 2024 Putnam County Fair. Good luck with your project!
