Ellie Sneath is the ag and 4-H agent for Meade County, and her office is in the town of Meade, which is south and west of Dodge City. She talks with us about her involvement in recovering from the Starbuck Fire a couple of years ago (here’s a link to a video featuring Elly and others from K-State Research and Extension and their work with 4-H’ers to care for orphaned calves shortly after the fire burned across several counties). She talks about how people came together from all over the nation to bring resources and the lasting connections that were formed.

Then she and Megan have an entertaining side discussion about both of them being “Horse People.”
