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!

2012 District III Livestock Skill-a-thon

 The District III Skill-a-thon contest was held  in Gooding County. 
Over 35 4-H members entered the contest from 5 different counties.
The age divisions included Clover Buds,
Junior 1, Junior 2, Intermediate, and Seniors.

The day started early with a work shop with different stations manned by Senior teens to assist those with learning the different skills needed to compete.

The skill-a-thon contest is a test of practical knowledge and covers 4 species, so Contestants have to know more than just the animal they show. Some of the categories include feed identification, breed identification, animal part identification, measuring ribeye and backfat, retail meat cut identification, feeds and feeding questions, judging hay samples and grain samples, and answering questions about how, where and why to give shots.

 This year the knowlege and fun was shared and had by all; before the contest begain we all had pizza and soft drinks.
