Emmet Wolf has been involved in Cherokee County 4-H for over 60 years.  He was in 4-H as a youth and served as a 4-H club leader from 1944 to 1988.  Emmet has helped 4-H and 4-H’ers in many ways.

Emmet served on the Cherokee County Fair Board for many years and was a strong advocate for 4-H members.  He also has been the 4-H Swine Superintendent for over 40 years.  During the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, Emmet helped raise funds to build the 4-H livestock barns at the Cherokee County and Plymouth County fair grounds.

Emmet has sold or donated feeder pigs to 4-H’ers in northwest Iowa for them to use as 4-H projects.  He has promoted and taught swine showmanship to several generations of 4-H’ers.  Emmet also initiated the showmanship trophies and recognition program in Cherokee County.  Emmet has been instrumental in bringing a variety of skilled livestock judges to the fair.  He has also assisted in training 4-H livestock judging teams in Cherokee County.

Emmet is very easy going and humble.  He always works behind the scenes and stays in the background.  He feels very strongly about 4-H and the youth of Cherokee County.
