2019 Fayette County: Bill Dohrmann

 

Bill Dohrmann has been an asset over the years to the Fayette County 4-H Program.

Bill was a 4-H member in Franklin County and to this day, he shares his excitement winning his first ever ribbon showing his baby beef.  He was a member of the Hamilton Go-Getters 4-H Club and showed Angus, Shorthorn and Hereford baby beef along with South Down and Hampshire sheep.  Bill was a member of the 1959 National Livestock judging team representing Iowa at the contest held in Chicago.

Although his 4-H career as a youth came to an end, Bill was unable to leave the 4-H program, so he continued to assist youth with their livestock projects sharing information on selection and giving advice at hands-on workshops.  

Bill served as a trustee from 2006 to 2012 on the Iowa 4-H Foundation board representing the Northeast Iowa area. 

Bill and his late wife Susan (Duroe), of 55 years, are the parents of two daughters, Ann and Jane and a son Tom.   They also have 5 grandchildren.

Bill continues to support Fayette County 4-H through donations to the Fayette County Friends of 4-H club, participating and supporting the Fayette County 4-H Foundation, the annual golf tournament and attending the Fayette County Fair.
