Fair Project Friday

FAIR PROJECT FRIDAY

“You’re excited and anxious to do well, but then you always have that panic that your goat won’t cooperate.” That is how Ben Weber, Amelia Steffes and Luke Weber describe showing at the fair. The cousins have been doing projects for 4 years, but still feel that nervous excitement when it’s time to show their goats. Ben, Amelia and Luke are members of Weeping Willow 4-H which is one of the clubs in the Fond Du Lac County 4-H organization. They will be showing their goats at this year’s Fond Du Lac County Fair. Amelia selected Bic, Luke has Pottzi and Ben is showing Jeff. All 3 also do poultry projects and Amelia will submit additional items in photography, arts and crafts. They are hopeful that what they learned through hard work, perseverance and effort will have positive results.

Amelia attends Brandon Middle School and the Weber brothers go to Rosendale Intermediate. Now that school will be out for the summer, they will have more time to work with the goats. Getting the animals ready for showing at the fair means spending time with them, giving them a lot of attention, providing special feed and walking – lots of walking. Amelia said her favorite part of having a project was not only getting to spend time with the animals, but also the reward and satisfaction she gets from doing it. Luke enjoys watching them grow and Ben appreciated the simplicity of the goats.

The Fond du Lac County Fair is July 17-21st this year. They each have their favorite things that they are looking forward to at the fair. Amelia likes walking around, seeing other projects and the food; Luke enjoys the rides and the food; and Ben likes hanging out with his friends and the food. “Come to the fair, come bid on the animals,” they said, “and enjoy the food.” Wednesday of fair week is when the kids will show their goats and the sale is Thursday.

Good luck to Ben, Amelia and Luke!

#FairProjectFriday...post #10... To show our support to the next generation of agriculture, Country Visions Cooperative will be giving a snapshot look of youth and their fair projects each Friday.

    In utero, the calf relies solely on the cow for nutrition, immunity, and overall protection.  As producers, you need to ensure that the cow is getting all of the proper vitamins, minerals, and all nutrition so that the calf is not compromised when it hits the ground.
