2018 Greene County: Bob Berns

Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2018 Greene County: Bob Berns

 

In 1995, Bob Berns was awarded the Ruby Clover award for his 30 years of service to the Greene County 4-H program. Throughout those 30 years, Bob was a leader of the Cedar Highland Boys 4-H Club and a long time swine superintendent. Before the fair, Bob’s 4-H club would participate in a club tour where club members would visit everyone’s farms to see their livestock before the fair. As a superintendent, Bob would sort swine weights and classes by hand during the county fair. 

Bob is a farmer in rural Churdan, who raised his own hogs when his four children, Lori, Carri, Kent and Brian were showing. In his free time, Bob coached his sons’ little league teams and was a member of the Churdan Lion’s Club, Churdan United Methodist Church and the Greene County Pork Producers where he served as president for one year. He was also a member of the FSA County Committeemen for 25 years serving as president for many years. 

Today, Bob is still actively engaged in farming and raises a cow/calf herd. He enjoys following his grandchildren in their activities. He continues to attend the Greene County Fair to support his grandchildren, who are continuing his legacy as members of the long-standing Cedar Highland 4-H Club as swine exhibitors. Greene County is honored to nominate Bob Berns for the Greene County 2018 Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame.
