Life On The Farm As The Years Fly Bye

We All Learn At a Different Pace

What did I learn about myself through my 4-H participation?

I learned that it is not easy to be 16 and on the edge of adulthood.

Head - to clear thinking, when giving your word to someone, think about how it will affect your heart if you buckle to peer pressure and go against your morals and ethics .

Heart - to greater loyalty; loyalty is something that is given freely and cannot be demanded or forced upon someone.

Hands - to larger service, you can only do what you feel is right and work hard to achieve your goals.

Health - to better living; if your word is your honor, and you stand fast to your morals and ethics; loyalty will come to you freely, your goals will be realized, and you will make a difference in the world around you.

I love 4-H !

Peer pressure is one of the hardest things we face; stay true to yourself no matter how hard it is and make a difference!

From start to finish 2008

Training a steer to show is not an easy thing to do it takes a lot of time.
One of the first thing you want to do; is break you steer to touch. The way I do this is to use a rake and rub the steers back, brisket, and legs. You will want to do this every time you go out and feed.
The next thing is to get the halter with a long lead rope on each of your steers, Leave it on them so that they are easy to catch, You will want to check your steers twice a day to make sure that the halter is on and that the steers are alright.
