My pig is a blend of Berkshire, Yorkshire, Tamworth and Duroc named Spots. It weighs around 215 pounds and I predict it will hit around 270 pounds at the time of sale.

Lucie johnston Lot # 151
Hi, my name is Lucia Johnston. I’m 16 years old and I live in the historic Onward Ranch, where my beautiful local steer, Bear, was born and raised. Bear is a Black Angus from my family’s commercial herd and is from one of our friendliest cows. Black Angus are known for their amazing marbling and fine bones with a higher meat yield. The bear is a short but stocky boy and has a long body with thin bones and a small head, which means a better yield of wasted meat. Bear is my seventh 4-H steer and I think he’s one of my best yet!
Scarlett johnston Lot # 152
Salvation! My name is Scarlett Johnston and I have a Black Angus steer named Whiskey! This year, the Whiskey had no problem gaining weight, it loves its grain! The Black Angus breed is known to have very good marbling, so this is what I count on when grading the meat. I will be selling whiskey at the 63rd Annual Show & Sale, and I hope to see you all there!

Hello, my name is Sienna Kalashnikoff. I am nine years old and this is my first year in 4-H. I am part of the Club 4-H du Lac Rose Miocène. I have a Simmental / Red Angus steer named Guapo.

Sadie Massey Lot # 155
Hello, my name is Sadie Massey. I am 12 years old and have been in 4-H for 4 years. I live in a motorhome, so it’s a bit difficult to do an animal project. I do photography instead. I like to take a lot of photos and explore new things with my camera. I like to take close-ups of nature and insects.

Bella shoults Lot # 159
Hello, my name is Bella Shoults, this is my 7th year in 4-H. The name of my market pig project is Hay-Hay, it is a Berkshire crossbreed Landrace pig.

Jacob shoults Lot # 160
My name is Jacob Shoults. My steer is a local market steer named Yanks. Yanks came out of my mature cow Missy, and I’m very proud of how he’s grown, how deep, how much meat he can fit on him, and how wide his back is. I estimate the Yanks will weigh around 1,200 pounds per display and sale. Look for lot # 160. Thank you for your continued support of 4-h.
