Selecting 4-H Animals

We recently selected the calves and heifers that will go to the Geauga County Fair this August. Lad, the boys and I walked through the pens to pick eye-catching animals that are the right age. It was a fun activity on a sunny, spring day.

We selected seven animals for members of the Geauga Dairymen 4-H club to show at the Fair. The members will care for and work with their animals to prepare for them for the Fair. Being in 4-H is a great experience for young people and our family is glad to be part of it!
