Lincoln Junior Farmers
In 1940, a group of boys met at the home of Walter Dahl and organized as a 4-H club. There were 16 members and Walter Dahl was the leader with Walter Hungerford as assistant leader.
Other leaders were: Walter Dahl; assistant, Arthur Roberts (1940-1942)
Vernon Lyford (1943-1945)
Donald Dobel (1946)
Glen Dadisman (1947-1950)
Membership has gone as high as 35 members but leveled off at approximately 25 members. This club maintained a 100% record of club members with projects. The members of the Lincoln Junior Farmers exhibited at numberous fairs and expositions including the Worth County Fair, the North Iowa Fair, Iowa State Fair, Minnesota State Swine show, National Barrow show, Iowa State 4-H dairy show and the International Livestock exposition.
The Junior Farmers had a purebred pig chain that operated for many years. Glen Dadisman, greased a purebred Duroc gilt and turned it loose during tour day. The object was to increase interest in better livestock and added interest on tour day. Only members regular in attendance at monthly meetings are eligible. The person catching the pig was to raise the pig according to approved swine practices, keep at least one litter purebred and to furnish the gilt for the next tour day. Winners were Byron Hill, David Lawyer, Dale Symes, Russell Symes, Richard Delp, Eugene Holden, Lowell Holden and Melvin Kobernusz as of 1955.
