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!

4-H 2012 A Year In Review

2012 was a long year starting in January  with the 2011 4-H Western National Round Up In Denver Colorado.It was a non stop year, and before I new it the 2012 year came to a close. I love 4-H and it is hard to believe I am starting my 9th year; I guess time truly flies bye when you are doing something you love to do.

My goal when I started 4-H was to do the best that I could and only take projects that I was truly interested in, This year was a great year for me, I worked hard and as a result I was honored to received the following Certificates of Achievements for; Top Gaining 4-H market Beef, Outstanding 4-H Beef Project, Champion Registered Cow/Calf Pair, Outstanding 4-H Red Angus Breeding Project, the Magic Valley Cattle Association Award, 4-H Horse Cart Class Reserve Champion, Top Horse senior Record Book, Top Senior Horse Showmanship, Grand Champion Horse Showmanship, Top overall 4-H Horse project, Best County Horse Oral Presentation, Top District Horse Presentation, Top District Public Speaking Presentation, Second Overall District Senior  Presentation, Best Livestock Judging Project, Top Senior Livestock Judging team ( Lincoln County), First Place Overall Judging team FCS skills Contest, FCS Skills Contest Highest Senior Judge, Best Modeling Project, Top Modeling Project Model, Advanced Quilting, Advanced Consumer & Family Science , Citizenship, Leadership & Personal Development, and Best Overall Senior Non Animal Project. 

As I find myself closer to the end of my time in 4-H I want to state that my Heart belongs to the Beef and Agriculture Industry. These last few years I will work to pass the love and knowledge of Beef  and Agriculture Industry to the younger 4-H members, before heading off to College to pursue my dream of being an active member of the Beef Industry.
