The Clover Connections 4-H Club had a meeting May 17 at the Ohio Fresh Eggs farm.

Al McDougal explained the process of getting the fresh eggs, which involved collecting the eggs from the chickens and taking them through an egg wash.

The eggs are then photographed and if they are not clean, go back into the wash again. The washed eggs are packaged and shipped to grocery stores.

Upcoming deadlines for Clover Connections include June 20 for Ohio State Fair forms. June 20 is also the date for the car wash at Tractor Supply Co. in Newark. Judging will be held July 7-9 for clothing, food and miscellaneous categories.
